Bronx-born MC Fat Joe Da Gangsta parlayed his notoriety as a graffiti writer into a lucrative and influential career as an MC and hip-hop impresario. One of the first east coast MCs to rhyme unapologetically about the harsh realities of the hustla's life, Fat Joe gained a considerable amount of underground respect in the mid-1990s. But mega-success would come later as leader of the Terror Squad--featuring his equally stout prot‚g‚ the late Big Pun--and again via his smash duet with Ashanti, 2002's "What's Love?" Representing the Puerto Rican voice in hip-hop, Fat Joe has been a major supporter of that community's reggaeton movement, which broke into the mainstream in the early 2000s.
They say good things come to those who wait. For over 10 years, Fat Joe has patiently waited for his opportunity to be among the greats in his field of music. Through years of hard work and dedication, Fat Joe made his mark on hip-hop music, film, clothing and the culture as a whole. From his humble beginnings in the bullet-riddled streets of the Bronx to orchestrating the rise of the late, great Big Pun to making a whole nation "Lean Back" in 2004, Fat Joe has run the gamut of hard work in the music business and will enjoy the fruits of his labor with the release of his 6th album, All or Nothing.
