After falling out of the public eye, Fat Joe has been on a solid run, following the release of his comeback project, The Darkside, Vol. 2. The mixtape is a follow-up to the album Fat Joe released in 2010, which was a commercial failure. However, Fat Joe’s mixtape has proven to be far more successful than his last album.
The success of Fat Joe’s mixtape has helped rebuild interest in his albums. Because of this, Fat Joe has started working on his latest album. Fat Joe discussed the new album and his weight loss during his interview with the LA Leakers. Speaking on his latest album, Fat Joe said it will have something for everyone.
While Fat Joe’s new album does not have a title, the Bronx emcee said it is halfway complete. Fat Joe went on to say his album is part “gangsta,” but he still has songs for the ladies too. Speaking on his weight loss, Fat Joe said he lost weight the natural way, hitting the gym. Despite the weight loss, Fat Joe has no plans of changing his name.
