As reported by Rap-up, on Wednesday (Jan. 18), Don Cartagena’s publicist issued a statement on the news, calling Joey Crack’s upcoming Plata o Plomo project with Remy Ma his “first release after joining the Roc Nation management family.”
Crack alluded to this on “All the Way Up (Remix),” which featured Hov and was released via TIDAL. “They ain’t wanna see the Squad and the Roc,” he rapped.
Their past differences dated back to the 1990s, when a fight between Terror Squad and Roc-A-Fella reportedly broke out. Former T.S. member Cuban Link later revealed that Memphis Bleek and/or other members of the Roc initiated the infamous confrontation. The tensions continued into 2000s and in 2003.
However, the tensions was cooled when “All the Way Up (Remix)” came to fruition with the help of Memphis Bleek and Noreaga.
I reached out to N.O.R.E, because he had a serious relationship with Memphis Bleek,” Pun told AllHipHop. “He got Bleek on the phone, and I told Bleek about the plans. He called Jay Z, and Jay Z called me back in like five minutes. He said, ‘Let’s’ do it. I can’t wait.’ The rest was history.”
Following the song’s release, Joey told Billboard why this was such an important collaboration. “It had to happen,” he said. “It was something on my bucket list forever. God blessed us and it came true. I couldn’t sleep this morning because I’m so happy for the people.”
