Fat Joe is shooting to release his eighth album, “The Elephant in the Room” in early 2008. Rounding up his tried and true producers — Scott Storch, Cool and Dr. Dre, DJ Khaled, Danjahandz and The Runners — Joe also secured features from P. Diddy, Rick Ross and Fabolous.
The rapper’s upcoming album will be his second for Imperial Records, Capitol Records’ independent arm. “Me, Myself & I,” his first release on Imperial, hit stores in 2006. The LP has sold 206,000 to-date, according to Nielsen Soundscan. The album’s lead single, “Make It Rain” has sold over 1 million ring tones and was certified platinum by the R.I.A.A.
