From the mid to the late 2000’s Fat Joe and Lil Wayne had an amazing run. Consistently collaborating on each other’s projects as well as Fat Joe’s protégé DJ Khaled as well. Several weeks ago Fat Joe dropped “Pullin” featuring Lil Wayne. The song marks as the fifth single from the upcoming album Family Ties which has been over two years in the making. Hopefully “Pullin” will serve as the catalyst in making Family Ties a success and Fat Joe recapture some of that magic he had with Lil Wayne in the past.

The first time the hip hop veterans appeared together was on “Holla At Me Baby” which was the lead single from DJ Khaled’s debut album Listennn… The Album released in 2006. The track also featured Pitbull and Paul Wall. Later that year Fat Joe with Lil Wayne dropped “Make It Rain” from the album Me Myself and I. Till this day it is one of the biggest songs of Fat Joe’s and Lil Wayne’s career. The term is still commonly used after all these years. A remix was later spawned which also featured Baby, T.I., and Rick Ross.

Lil Wayne also appeared on “The Profit” from the project. Around this same time Fat Joe returned the favor appearing on Lil Wayne and Baby’s project Like Father Like Son on the song “About All That”. The following year the tandem would show up on DJ Khaled’s sophomore project We The Best on the lead single “We Takin’ Over” alongside Akon,T.I, Rick Ross, and Birdman. As well to the remix of “I’m So Hood” with Ludacris, Birdman, Young Jeezy, and Rick Ross.

In 2008 Fat Joe would drop The Elephant in the Room with Lil Wayne appearing on “The Crack House” and the remix to “Ain’t Sayin’ Nothin” with The Game. The years following that Lil Wayne was featured on “Winding On Me” from 2009’s Jealous Ones Still Envy (J.O.S.E.2) and “Heavenly Father” from Fat Joe’s 2010 mixtape The Darkside Vol.1. The last time Fat Joe worked together with Lil Wayne prior to “Pullin” was on “Yellow Tape” released in 2012 as a promo single with A$AP Rocky and French Montana.

The last three years have been quiet for Fat Joe. The concept of having Dre from Cool & Dre is a no brainer. He has been responsible in producing so many hits from Fat Joe’s catalogue over the years. What was missing though was putting Fat Joe alongside Lil Wayne, an artist that he has great chemistry and success with in the past. In addition to still being a large draw as evident with last year’s project Tha Carter V managing to go platinum which is extremely difficult to do in this day and age. “Pullin” gives the tandem the opportunity to rain on the industry one more time.
