The Darkside Vol. 1

As a perpetual underdog in one of the most competitive industries imaginable, Fat Joe lives a high-stress life, but the plus-sized emcee hasn’t let it get to him – how is he able to stay so cool when the pressure’s on? Well, when you come up in the treacherous conditions Joey Crack describes on newly-leaked album cut No Problems, your average, everyday worries and cares have a tendency to fade into insignificance. Backed by Scoop DeVille‘s hard-hitting, retro-informed boardwork, the artist gives us a dealer’s-eye view of his pre-rap career existence in the belly of the beast, blending gritty imagery with pop-referential braggadocio. Singer/songwriter Rico Love handles guest duties, providing a helpful (if a little understated) summary on the hook: “It ain’t safe ‘round these parts.” Like what you’re hearing? Fans will be able to find this standout track, along with reader-approved singles If It Ain’t About Money and Haha (Slow Down Son), on The Darkside Vol. 1, scheduled to hit record stores and online retailers on July 27.
