Fat Joe has a worldwide fan base, and he enjoys speaking with them. The rapper has achieved enormous critical and commercial success. Joe recently announced a one-man theater show telling his life story, with an introduction by Dave Chappelle.

Fat Joe, the renowned hip-hop storyteller, is bringing his oratory skills to a new theatre production based on his life, coming this fall. Roc Nation and Magic Lemonade are co-producing the project. It will be directed by Netflix’s original “Beats” director Chris Robinson.

According to TMZ, Dave Chappelle, a Bronx native, will open the show with a special introduction. Interviews with some of his closest collaborators will also be featured in the production. Fat Joe revealed to the outlet that he’s “not holding back” in the theatrical production and will keep it real with the audience.

“The world will be getting Fat Joe at his most authentic, vulnerable, and comedic self on that stage. I’ve always taken pride in my storytelling, but we’re about to take it to the next level. I’m 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.”

While he did not provide a specific date for his one-man show, his upcoming memoir, “The Book Of Jose,” is also set to be released in the fall (Nov. 15). The book will also serve as the basis for a new television show based on his life. Fat Joe revealed the show will air on Starz during an episode of Math Hoffa’s ‘My Expert Opinion podcast.’

“Eventually, every Sunday, after you watch BMF and Power, you’re gonna see The Fat Joe Show on Starz network. It was a lot of channels trying to get this sh*t. Puff (Sean “Diddy” Combs) is my partner and we chose there because that’s prime time every Sunday.”

Fat Joe’s new stage show was announced on his birthday. To commemorate the special occasion, the Terror Squad leader took to Instagram and shared an inspirational message. Fat Joe began, “August 19th A King was born,” before paying homage to his Puerto Rican Afro-Cuban heritage.

Let’s wait and see when his official date is announced. We will keep you informed. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
