Fat Joe is looking forward to a brighter future thanks to a recently inked deal with E1 Music. “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,'” the Terror Squad leader and man behind hits such as “Lean Back” said in a statement Monday, March 29. According to E1, Joe will kick off their partnership with a new single, followed by the release of his anticipated album “The Dark Side”. Kicked off by the single “Slow Down” featuring Jeezy, Fat Joe’s “The Dark Side” is slated for release June 28th, 2010. “I originally signed Fat Joe to his first record deal and was blown away by the new material Joe played me,” Alan Grunblatt, President of E1 Music, adds. “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.
