Fat Joe’s Terror Squad Inks Two Album Deal with Koch Records
Fat Joe’s Terror Squad crew has inked a two album deal with independent powerhouse Koch Records. Under the terms of the agreement, the Bronx-based TS crew, which also includes Miami’s DJ Khaled, will release two group LP’s on Koch. “I signed Fat Joe to his first record deal in 1992 when I was at Relativity,” said Alan Grunblatt, General Manager of KOCH Records. “I am thrilled to be working with Joe again, and continuing our relationship with Terror Squad and DJ Khaled. We’ve had great success this year!” Khaled has already released two reasonably successful mixtape albums through Koch, 2006’s Listennn: The Album and We The Best, which dropped this past June. “We’ve had major success with KOCH and the Terror Squad imprint in the past, especially with DJ Khaled’s two albums,” said Fat Joe. “We will continue this success with this new Terror Squad deal at KOCH Records. It’s a perfect place to unveil our new members.” The last Terror Squad group album, True Story, which included the hit single “Lean Back,” was released on Steve Rifkind’s SRC Records in 2004.
