In an interview with XXL, the dieting Don discussed the tape, his first, claiming it will be the "hardest mixtape out," and will be coming soon.
"We have the mixtape 'The Darkside, Vol. 2,' Fat Joe explained. "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. S--- 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 confirmed that his two recent Mark Henry-produced street tracks 'Drop a Body on Em' and 'Massacre on Madison' will be on the tape, while his upcoming album will be packed with "crazy new s---," including a potential collaboration with Maxwell.
"We gonna have them joints on the mixtapes then we gonna have some new s---," he continued. "Crazy new s---! 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 & 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."
While his mixtape is allegedly on the way, Fat Joe has yet to reveal a release date for his forthcoming untitled new album.
