Fat Joe has officially unveiled his first ever memoir, The Book of Jose.
Set to release via Random House Group’s Roc Lit 101 publishing arm, the title is co-written by Fat Joe and respected music journalist Shaheem Reid. A statement shares that The Book of Jose will “pull back the curtain on Joe’s challenging upbringing and give readers a look into his ascent to stardom, while candidly reckoning with the costs and rewards of that life: its tragedies, regrets, and glittering triumphs.”
“The Book of Jose is more than just a book about my career,” Fat Joe said of his memoir. “It explores the darkest moments of my life that shaped me as a man, brushes with death, being locked up, losing friends and dealing with depression.”
He also added in an Instagram video, “This ain’t just a rapper’s story, it’s talking about everything [from] police brutality [to] drug abuse, selling drugs, hustling, getting locked up, getting framed, getting betrayed, depression, hip-hop’s greatest moments — they’re all in this book.”
The Book of Jose drops November 1 and is available for pre-order now.
