Fat Joe Tickets for Sale

In an industry that reinvents itself all the time, veteran rapper Fat Joe has established a solid foothold, thanks to a talented ear for catchy beats, infectious rhymes and great delivery. Joe's not only Fat -- he's phat.

Latino rapper Fat Joe (aka Fat Joe da Gangsta, Joey Crack, and his real name Joe Cartagena) was raised in the South Bronx area of New York. It was through an older brother that Cartagena learned the ways of the street, as well as discovering rap music via the sounds of such groundbreaking artists as Theodore, Funky 4 + 1, and the Furious Five.

Fat Joe is a Puerto Rican rapper from the Bronx, who was popular in the underground rap scene during the early and mid-1990s. After Joe's rap partner, the similarly large, Puerto Rican, Bronx-based rapper, Big Pun, broke into the mainstream with his duet with the O'Jays, "I'm Not A Player" and its more popular remix, "Still Not A Player," featuring R&B singer Joe, Fat Joe began to make his move into the mainstream. His 1998 single, "Bet Ya Man Can't" which featured Big Pun, as well as other members of their entourage, such as Cuban Link and Triple Seis, was a small hit.

Shortly before Big Pun's death, Pun and Joe had a hit with Jennifer Lopez on a track off of her debut album, On The 6, called "Feelin' So Good".
With 2001's release of J.O.S.E. (Jealous Ones Still Envy), Joe scored two back-to-back hits with "We Thuggin'," which featured R&B superstar R. Kelly singing the chorus and "What's Luv," which featured up-and-coming R&B/pop star Ashanti on its chorus, and would go on to become one of 2002's biggest pop hits. In late 2002, Joe released the album "Loyalty" and had a couple of minor hits with "Crush Tonite" (featuring Ginuwine) and "All I Need".

Recently, Fat Joe has tried his hand at acting, appearing in the 2002 movie Empire with John Leguizamo and Peter Sarsgaard. When not touring or promoting his latest album, Fat Joe connects with the community in the Bronx. He owns a barbershop, a clothing store called Fat Joe's Halftime, and runs a fashion line, FJ560. He employs his friends form the 'hood and keeps them on track, by helping them earn honest livings.

In all aspects of life, Fat Joe has proven to be an originator and a rising star.
