The ink has just dried on Fat Joe‘s new record deal. The rapper left EMI for E1 Records after releasing his last album, Jealous Ones Still Envy 2 with the label. The rapper told that he is staying active until June 28, which is the release of his next album The Darkside

‘It didn’t really take long,’ said Joe about switching labels ‘It was a matter of getting the right deal structured. With me, it’s all about owning my masters. If I don’t have ownership of my music, I don’t really wanna do it. a lot of labels ain’t comfortable giving people the ownership of their masters. Basically, I wanted my cake and eat it too.’ 

Joe also mentioned that his upcoming project features guest appearances by Trey Songz, R. Kelly, Fat Man Scoop and Dj Premier. According to Joe ‘The Album is coming crazy…I’m really happy about the album, man. I’m like one or two gems away from wrapping the deal.’
