Fat Joe: New Video & Music From “The Darkside” Album

Posted by T. Adeyemi on July 9, 2010

“Joey Van Gundy, watch me work the Magic”

It seems Joey Crack consistently puts out quality music, but never really gets the full recognition he probably deserves for it. According to him he’s a legend already anyway (A statement like that is sure to bring quiet to a room instantly.) Ehh, sometimes it just happens that way. Either way he’s garnered enough attention to be approaching his tenth album, The Darkside Vol. 1 is schedule to drop on July 27th. In preparation for his new album Fat Joe has released new music and a video for his second single.

The new track which was premiered by Funkmaster Flex features Rico Love on the hook as Joey goes in over the old school Public Enemy track. Joey vowed to show his “darker” side on this album and judging by the tracks that have been released it looks like he’s making a solid attempt. Although, nothing sounds like the rawness you would expect from what Joe has labeled a classic album, there are still enough one-liners to keep your ear in-tuned.

Joe also dropped the Trey Songz assisted “If It Aint About Money” video yesterday. The visual shot in New York (where else) is littered with several badd biddies and enough Nuvo to even satisfy T-Pain’s thirst. Nonetheless, the minus the exaggerated intro the vid and the track are strong compliments to each other.

Trey takes a break from his crooning, pre-Ready style much more of his mixtape flow. Even with that don’t look for either track to soar to the top of the charts. Buy hey, “If It Aint About Money” then it must be about winning, ask LeBron.
