Fat Joe Reveals Cover Art For "The Darkside, Vol. 2" Mixtape

UPDATE: Joey Crack is gearing up for the release of his first mixtape, which will have a "street" sound.

Fat Joe has revealed that he is gearing up for the release of his new mixtape The Darkside, Vol. 2, the sequel to his 2010 album. Speaking with XXLMag.com, Joey Crack said that his first mixtape will drop within the next three weeks and will sport a street sound.

“We have the mixtape The Darkside, Vol. 2,” he said. “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.”

Additionally, Joe is working on his new album, which is currently without a release date. He revealed that the first single, “Another Round,” features Chris Brown and is produced by Cool & Dre and Young Lad.

“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.”

  • D-Town Joe

    Fat Joe is actually a classic guy with Primo

  • Anonymous

    Joe playin it smart Drop the Hard shit for free since the only people who listen to that are the people who illegally download everything anyway, then drop the album with all the crossover hits on it

  • MC Grimez

    Dark Side 1 was ferocious. Same with JOSE 2. that ice cream man.

  • John Mullins

    Berta keep that promise to drop a trilogy. And I want CLASSICS. Darkside 1 was ill. Even though people was hatin.

  • The MG

    Joe kinda looks like Hancock on the cover. But this should definitely be good. Vol. 1 was sick, well, minus the Trey Songz collabo.

  • Azhar

    Vol 1 was crazy...Cool & Dre + Joe = bangers!!!!

  • Lemar Green

    Can't wait. The Darkside is what got me fuckin' with Crack (and not all that pop BS he usta put out), so here's hopin' volume II goes just as hard (or harder).

  • @iamSquareone

    Darkside was crazy dope. vol. 2 should be interesting.

  • junMaf&ckn

    The DarkSide Got Mad Burn In da Hoop Hoop... Right On Them Street Joe Came Up On... Hope Part 2 Ca Keep Up Wit Part 1! Thanx For The Freebie Joey!

  • mike

    the 1st one was hard. i wish he could release vol 2 as an album.

  • JG

    hope Joey comes with tyhat classic sound, DSvol1 had some hot tracks but was honestly a 2-3 listen album. I want some FAt Joe classics that im gonna be bumping for years to come

  • dilli

    Thats a fucking sick cover man!!!

  • Hypestyle

    Joe needs to reunite with the Diggin In the Crates Crew for production on a whole album- diamond d, buckwild, lord finesse, dj premiere..

    • Mu

      I'm a hip-hop purist who appreciates the Golden Era like you gentlemen seem to, HOWEVER, no one wants to hear that old-ass DITC sound. That shit worked for 90s, time to move on fellas.

    • The MG

      I've been saying that for years. He should definitely hook back up with D.I.T.C, but it probably won't happen though.

    • Anonymous

      Co-sign. Everyone that listens to real hip hop and has heard him on tunes like D&D Allstars, D.I.T.C. material, etc all know hes a solid rapper. He needs to hook up with Finesse, Showbiz, Preem etc again to make a strong CD.

    • IDK

      now THAT will be a hard-ass album. straight up DITC along with DJ Premier. not an album with a Chris Brown feature in a song

  • PDubz

    The Darkside vol.1 was a classic can't wait for no.2.

  • Scott Yu

    fat joe is fucking legend

  • Anonymous

    rick ross is better then this fool ...

    • Mu

      Man, I understand why Ross doesn't appeal to everybody, but nobody who judges hip-hop music OBJECTIVELY can say that Fat Joe is a better rapper. Thats just fuckery

    • joey

      rick ross aint better then fatjoe & anywayz rick ross dont even right his on lyrics so dont try to say rick ross is better cause he aint

  • Dr. iBar

    This guys still calling himself fat joe.. no self confidence... call your self chubby joe at least

  • jae 1

    hes not a dude that spit super fast bars or ect but he has a heavy voice that brings a presence.might be plain to sum ppl.i dont mind him its wat ever.but when he was younger i kno he went out their and tryed real hard he ant just jump on you tube wasent even around back then. sometimes the energy you put into something pro diks your future weather your the best at it or wat ever...bad spelling i kno

  • Afi Keita James

    And prodigy and Mobb sleep gave us an even worse album than J.O.S.E 2 called blood money which is really one of ten worst albums of the 2000's, truly horrible.

  • Afi Keita James

    b simmons: Fat Joe is not a lyricists and you a ball biter. He always relies on some guest feature in an attempt to get over. I am not a hater I like quality music not pathetic garbage ass rappers like Fat Joe. Fat Joe is trash and again you a ball biter. Posted12 hours ago Yet you support garbage rappers like shawty lo, 50 cent and the rest of the bullshit out there they are just as bad as fat hoe? Please, I Don't give a damn if they write their songs or not, the fact is their music stinks and Ice-T and Haystak and some real rappers get a pass for going after these lame ass clowns and fuck cuban link now, he supports dickheads like 5-0 aka 50 cent who are just as corrupt as horrible as his enemy, and worse he's signing even lamer artists like shawty lo and pauly d to his label, that's a shame. no wonder rap has gone to shit after pac and biggie died.

  • Afi Keita James

    And i'm glad joe made the decision not to do anymore of pun's posthumous albums, because after the disasters of the late tupac and biggie's albums in recent times except for until the end of time and better dayz, he did the right thing the big pun reggaeton album would be a huge mistake.

  • Afi Keita James

    And cuban broken link went to shit now too, this is the same clown who compared mysonned to biggie, fuck this clown he hasn't been shit since pun died and that video proves it, plus he fucked over his own CLK crew, ask figgaraw, D Cell and Level.

  • Afi Keita James

    Writing songs or not, their music is just plain garbage and truly awful, this is why rap is just plain pathetic ever since tupac and biggie got killed.

  • Afi Keita James

    b simmons: Fat Joe is garbage. He needs features to get attention. His last two albums flopped. Why is he still even trying. He does songs with Jeezy, Trey Songz, Chris Brown, Pleasure P, etc. But none of that stuff is popping. No one on the streets is checking for Fat Joe. Go back to the interview that Prodigy from Mobb Deep did before he went to jail he told the truth about Fat Joe and his music. Fat Joe is not talented he has ghost writers (ask Cuban LinK) and is still awful. Fat Joe is trash. Yet even worse rappers like shawty lo get a pass, please. there are MUCH worse rappers than joe.

  • Josh Moore

    dammm big homie droppin the lbs fast huh. good for him health wise, now lets see if he can keep his weight up for some good hiphop. and i dont know who this simmons hater been listening to, but it aint Crack, cuz hes been ill especially the past two years.

    • b simmons

  • P

    Damn he dropping this mixtape only means he is going back to that club shit with his new album. Darkside was his best album since the Don Cartegena album. I'm a cop the mixtape for sure.

  • b simmons

    Pleas not another album. Why does this lame continue to try and put music out. His last two albums flopped. Fat Joe is a nut hugger. He is not lyrical. He is a horrible rapper. His music is trash. He always has to feature a whole bunch of people to grab attention. Fat Joe is a bum. He will flop again on his next album.

    • Afi Keita James

      Joe doesn't care about sales thank goodness, the darkside was one of the year's best albums last year.

      lol nigga you a fuckin hater. Crack is mad consistent and has had 2 of his best lp's in the last 5 years (me myself & i, darkside)..stop hating and give a listen

  • ts5000

    the darkside was ill can't wait 4 the mixtape

  • Anonymous

    say what u want about fat joe, but dude delivers most of the time. except for that jose 2 album, dude is usually on point

  • bluerazor

    Yes, give the streets something to rock with that old ill production!

  • Nico 3

    Forget sales. Just make good music, and right now, he's probably about as close to that as possible.

  • Anonymous

    he's playing it smart, give the hardcore album away as a mixtape because hardcore rap fans dont buy shit anyway, and then make the album pop so you can actually make a lil money

  • BIG FACE ITALY

    I would like to see that new Darkside tape! Bronx bombers salute Fat Joe Terror Squadian!!

  • Lemar Green

    Prayin that's it goes as hard as Vol. 1. The Darkside solidified me as a Fat Joe fan... but only for that album tho

  • Tizz

    Man that Darkside Vol. 1 was heat, I hope he puts it out Vol. 2 in cd quality so I can jam to it since he is going to put it out as a mixtape. Sometimes artists make great mixtape/street albums with horrible sound quality and I have to turn it up real loud and it kinda kills the listening experience. I know a lot of people sleep on Joe Crack but the man is capable of making good music. A lot of these artists get caught in the "what's hot now" moment and try new things which in some cases leaves their fanbase confused or uninterested.
