Fat Joe has always represented for his ‘hood, but with his new video, Don Cartagena tells a drastically different story.
“Another Day,” which premiered Sunday on “MTV Jams” as the station’s Jam of the Week, features Joe, Rick Ross, French Montana and Tiara Thomas. If the track sounds familiar to you, there’s a reason: it draws inspiration from Queen Latifah’s 1993 single “Just Another Day.”
While Thomas and Montana rework the memorable hook, Joe Crack spits about the ills of the world with a focus on children who have been kidnapped. “All I hear is sirens, the sound of guns blasting/ A little girl is missing but ain’t nobody asking,” he raps compassionately.
At the close of the video, Joe flashes a few key statistics across the screen. According to Joe’s estimation, 2,000 children go missing every day and 42 percent of missing children are African-American and 28 percent are Hispanic.
