Fat Joe has signed a new deal with E1 music (which used to be Koch) to drop his upcoming "Dark Side" new album this June. "It's been a long time coming," he stated. "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.'"
Last month, Fat Joe told Jenny Boom Boom that artists like Trey Songz, R. Kelly and Young Jeezy (Jeezy Now) will be featured on the album. "The album is crazy — I got this crazy joint with me and Trey Songz and we got me and [R. Kelly] after that. They hard, they hard. Basically, I don't want to say what they are on the radio but they hustler anthems…we gotta a couple more announcements to make, you gonna see the movie unfold…We're making probably the biggest move you can make in hip-hop. It's gonna be splashing news in the next two weeks…It's a movie…[Young] Jeezy's my man. I played him ['Slow Down'], it was done, hook and everything. And he was like, 'I gotta get on that thing, Crack.''
