TNT analyst Kenny Smith is obviously a fan of Fat Joe, or they got really cool in New Orleans during All-Star Weekend because the TNT crew usually doesn’t do promo shoutouts and solicitations to purchase demands for artists, but Smith shouted out Fat Joe’s new collaborative album with Remy Ma, Plata O Plomo and tells the millions of Inside The NBA viewers to “pick it up.”
Then he told Shaq that Fat Joe sends his regards. Shaq said tell Joe I said, "what up."
Kenny responded, "Gotta shout my guy cause he killed it All-Star weekend for me. 'All The Way Up' is one of the new joints... he and Remy Martin have an album out."
"Nothing can stop them they're all the way up !"
He seemed really excited.
When you think about it, it’s just good business for Smith to ride this wave of newfound popularity that Joey Crack and Remy Ma are enjoying in the aftermath of her very descriptive, personal and revealing Nicki Minaj diss that sent earthquakes throughout a lyrically-dormant rap industry. .
Smith’s daughter Kayala Brianna is an R&B singer who also is an aspiring actress and fashion designer.
She’s had some rising success as she is a 2017 Best New R&B Artist nominee at the upcoming iHeart Radio Music Awards(without her Dad’s influence), but could definitely enhance her profile if she’s featured on a Fat Joe or Remy Ma joint at this juncture.
