Although she let the cat out of the bag last week, in a surprising turn of events, Nicki Minaj and Drake grace the cover of the May issue of XXL. The only two artists that arguably deserved to appear on the extremely controversial last issue of XXL decided to settle for nothing less than their own cover… together. If people are still discussing (see: arguing) the last cover, their brains are gonna explode when they see this. The issue hits newsstands nationwide on April 20th.
Audio: Fat Joe Talks The Darkside Producers & Features (Just Blaze, DJ Premier, Clipse, Cam’ron & more)Wednesday, March 31st, 2010
Fat Joe called up MTV to talk about his next album The Darkside, due June 28th via his newly-signed E1 deal.
I got my Just Blaze track today, so I’m excited. I got Primo, Just Blaze, Scram Jones, more Scoop Deville. Me and Cool & Dre did this monster with Trey Songz. I’m real happy with the album, man. I’m like one or two gems away from wrapping the deal. I’m just trying to dumb out. Buckwild gave me something ugly. I just want you to hear that album and be like, ‘All right, this is totally, no question, The Darkside.‘ I gotta deliver on my promise.”
He also gave more details on his track with The Clipse, which Joey teased a few seconds of in this vlog. The track is called “Kilo” and also features Cam’ron, produced by Infamous (“Mr. Carter”, “Hey Joe.”)
He plans to shoot a video within the next week for Slow Down (Ha Ha) now that Jeezy is done with the BP3 Tour.
They caught up with Joell Ortiz as he was shooting the video for “We Don’t Believe You” with Joe Budden and Novel. He talks about Big Pun, the “Project Boy” video, songs from the Road Kill mixtape, the Novel mixtape as well as an update on Slaughterhouse 2.

Radio rip from last night’s Tony Touch show:

The three all had their own opportunities to showcase their music and talents. Donnis decided to let this exclusive joint “Tonight” off his upcoming mixtape Fashionably Late hit the airwaves.
