Fat Joe is releasing a memoir titled, The Book of Jose, which will be available later this year. The book will tackle Joe’s past and how he “overcame the drug- and violence-scarred South Bronx,” according to a press release.

“THE BOOK OF JOSE is more than just a book about my career,” the rapper explained in a statement. “It explores the darkest moments of my life — brushes with death, being locked up, losing friends, and dealing with depression — that shaped me as a man. I overcame significant adversity but I’m excited to be in position to share my story and inspire others through my journey.”

The 288-page memoir, which is described as being written in “Joe’s own intensely compelling voice,” will be published by Roc Lit 101, a new company from Jay-Z’s Roc Nation in partnership with Random House Publishing.

Roc Lit 101 is expected to also publish a memoir from Yo Gotti, as well as a criminal injustice piece by Meek Mill, and a work of fantasy fiction from Lil Uzi Vert.

The Book of Jose is scheduled to release on Nov. 1, 2022. It is available for preorder through Penguin Random House here.
