Fat Joe to Hit the Stage in a One-Man Show About His Life

Fat Joe to Hit the Stage in a One-Man Show About His Life

Fat Joe is set to star in a one-man stand-up show. The theatrical experience is based on his upcoming memoir, The Book of Jose will include unfiltered, never-before-heard anecdotes about the rapper's life and career – from the time he spent in prison a decade ago to that time he was kidnapped in Angola, Africa.

“The world will be getting Fat Joe at his most authentic, vulnerable, and comedic self on that stage,” Joe said in a press release. “I’m not holding anything back. I’ve always taken pride in my storytelling, but we’re about to take it to the next level."

The show, which is directed by Chris Robinson, will be co-produced by Roc Nation and Magic Lemonade, and will feature a special introduction from Dave Chappelle, along with other celebrity appearances. It'll be soundtracked by Terror Squad's music and will also feature archival footage and interviews with Joe’s friends, family, and collaborators.

“I’ve worked with great storytellers, but Fat Joe is easily one of the greatest of all-time,” Magic Lemonade executive producer Rikki Hughes said, per Complex. “Magic Lemonade is excited to work with Joe and Roc Nation to bring his story to life in an unexpected way.”

Joe's memoir, which he says "explores the darkest moments of my life—brushes with death, being locked up, losing friends, and dealing with depression—that shaped me as a man," is scheduled for release on Nov. 15. It's currently available for pre-order.

Ticket information for the upcoming one-man, slated to hit the stage this fall, will be available in the coming weeks.
