Like many a successful MC, Fat Joe wasn't one to leave his crew behind.
Like many a successful MC, Fat Joe wasn't one to leave his crew behind. However, unlike most rap outfits, the other four members of Joe's Terror Squad—MCs Remy, Armageddon, Prospect and singer Tony Sunshine—are credible solo artists. "True Story," the group's SRC/Universal debut and second set overall, showcases their individual and collective talents. The latter is best-exemplified in lead single "Lean Back." The Scott Storch-produced jam is on its way to becoming a crossover smash. Club anthem "Take Me Home" has similar potential. More than just hip-hop posturing, Sunshine represents the group's more romantic side on the doo-wop-inspired "Streets of NY." Fans who want something more hardcore need look no further than "Yeah Yeah Yeah" and "Bring'em Back," which features vocals from deceased MCs Big L and Big Pun.—RH
