OK! Looks like Fat Joe is preparing to take his talent from the concert stage to the comedy stage! The ‘Lean Back’ rapper announced Friday that he will be hosting a one-man standup comedy show in NYC this fall.
Joe is introduced by one of the most famous comedians of all time, Dave Chappelle, with Roc Nation and Magic Lemonade as co-producers. According to a press release about the show, Joe will explore some of the deepest 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 will see Fat Joe at his most authentic, vulnerable and comedic on this stage. I hold nothing back I’ve always been proud of my storytelling, but we’re about to take 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 of all time. Magic Lemonade is excited to work with Joe and Roc Nation to bring his story to life in unexpected ways.”
Joe celebrated his 52nd birthday amid the news.
