Bronx bred rapper

Fat Joe has announced he will hit the road this summer for a European tour beginning

July 28 in Torre de Moncorvo, Portugal. Fat Joe is set to perform in 11

cities including Switzerland, France, Germany, the UK and Spain. The tour marks

the first time that Fat Joe (born Joseph Cartagena) has performed in Europe after

overcoming his fear of flying. "This tour has been something I've

wanted to do for years,” Fat Joe said in a press release. “I'm so glad

I've found peace with flying and am able to finally hit the overseas market. This

will definitely be the first of many European trips for me. I'm excited to finally

see all my fans overseas that have supported my hip-hop career over the past 14

years." In addition to touring, Fat Joe is currently putting the

finishing touches on his 7th solo LP, Me Myself & I. The

independently released disc set features collaborations with The Game, Lil Wayne

and others, as well as production from Streetrunner, DJ Khaled, LV and Scott Storch,

who produced Fat Joe's smash single, "Lean Back."“This

album is really my most up close & personal you've ever heard,” said

Joe of the album. “I'm showing all sides and letting fans really get to know

who I truly am. Lyrically, I'm showing my vulnerable and gangster sides.”
