Fat Joe reveals The Darkside: Vol. II mixtape cover | Cover Art

Other than a few guest features and the recently released Chris Brown featuring “Another Round”, 2011 has been a pretty quiet year for Fat Joe with regards to musical output. Well it looks like that will all change as the former Diggin’ In The Crates emcee is preparing to release his first official solo mixtape project within the next three weeks.

The mixtape, entitled The Darkside: Vol. II, will act as a sequel to Crack’s 2010 long player, The Darkside, and will feature more of a street sound as opposed to that of his more commercial recent releases.
Talking to HipHopDX, The Bronx native stated “We have the mixtape The Darkside: Vol. II,” 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.”

No specific street date for the project has been released but stay tuned for more info.
