Okay! It looks like Fat Joe is getting ready to take his talents from the concert stage to the comedy stage! The ‘Lean Back’ rapper announced Friday that he will be performing a one-man stand-up show in NYC this fall.
Joe will be introduced by one of the most famous comedians of all time, Dave Chappelle, with Roc Nation and Magic Lemonade co-producing. According to a press release about the show, Joe will explore some of the most in-depth parts of his life, including his journey to stardom and the tragic experience of being kidnapped in Africa.
Joe had this to say about his new venture:
The world gets Fat Joe to be his most authentic, vulnerable and comedic self on that stage. I hold nothing back. I’ve always prided myself on my storytelling, but we’re taking it to the next level. I am grateful to Dave Chappelle, Roc Nation and Magic Lemonade for their support in sharing my story and helping make this one-man show the biggest event ever.”
Magic Lemonade executive producer Rikki Hughes called Fat Joe one of the greatest storytellers of all time.
I’ve worked with great storytellers, but Fat Joe is easily one of the greatest ever. Magic Lemonade is thrilled to work with Joe and Roc Nation to bring his story to life in an unexpected way.”
Joe celebrated his 52nd birthday in the middle of the news.
