Fat Joe Reveals Details on The Darkside, Vol. 2 Mixtape, New Album

One hundred pounds lighter or not, Fat Joe is still Fat Joe. The Bronx Don hasn’t lost his appetite for destruction and in less than a month, he’s unleashing his sequel to last year’s critically acclaimed LP, The Darkside, Vol. 1.

“We have the mixtape The Darkside, Vol. 2,” the 20-year vet revealed to “We gonna drop the mixtape no later than two-and-a-half-weeks. That’s coming out super hard though. Not ever regular hard. It’s gonna be the hardest mixtape out; nothing nice about it. The mixtape is too hard. Shit coming out like what a street anthem mixtape should sound like. This is my first mixtape. We’re gonna put it out as a mixtape and hit the people with that raw, street, Joe Krill.”

Joe says those Mark Henry produced street gems—such as “Drop a Body on Em” and “Massacre on Madison”—that he released a few months back will definitely be included on the tape.

“We gonna have them joints on the mixtapes then we gonna have some new shit,” he promised. “Crazy new shit! Then we working on the album too. We haven’t named it yet. The first single with Chris Brown is retarded. It’s called ‘Another Round,’ produced by Cool and Dre and Young Lad. We got joints [on the album] produced by Rico Love; it’s sounding great. With the album, we’re gonna make that music that everyone can relate too. It’s still gonna be hard, but it’s gonna be hit mania. You know exactly what it is. The joint with Chris Brown is a super joint. I got another joint I’m trying to get Maxwell on. You know, I’m talking to the ladies. I lost that weight, I gotta talk to them.”

As of press time Joe does not have a release date for his official LP. —Shaheem Reid
