NEW YORK, NY–(March 29, 2010) -Â E1 Music is thrilled to announce the addition of hip hop icon Fat Joe to its burgeoning roster of artists.
Fat Joe will release a new album, titled “The Dark Side,” on June 28th, 2010. The first single, “Slow Down” features Young Jeezy and was just serviced to urban radio.
Fat Joe states, “It’s been a long time coming. I have a long history with Alan Grunblatt and everyone at E1. Although it’s a small label, they have the best marketing and promotion staff in the hip hop game and I’m looking forward to working with them on my new album, ‘The Dark Side.'”
Alan Grunblatt, President of E1 Music, adds, “I originally signed Fat Joe to his first record deal and was blown away by the new material Joe played me. Fate has brought us back together; trust me when I tell you he’s got bangers for days!”
Joseph “Fat Joe” Cartagena has sold over 2.5 millions album as a solo artist and has taken the hip hop world by storm since his 1993 debut album “Represent.” He followed this impressive debut with success after success. His album Jealous Ones Still Envy (J.O.S.E.) was a critically-acclaimed, platinum selling album that spawned the hits “What’s Luve” and “We Thuggin.”
In addition to being a highly successful solo artist, he is also the founder and current C.E.O. of the collective Terror Squad. Joe also had a monster hit with Terror Squad, “Lean Back,” which became a summertime anthem when it was released.
