Joe calls it the "hardest mixtape out." "We have the mixtape, The Darkside, Vol. 2 -- we gonna drop the mixtape no later than two-and-a-half-weeks," he says. "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. Sh** 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." Joe also revealed that the street joints, "Drop A Body On Em" and "Massacre On Madison", are just a couple of the tracks fans should expect on the upcoming mixtape. Then, on his upcoming album, he says there will ne "crazy new sh**," including a potential collaboration with Maxwell. "We gonna have them joints on the mixtapes then we gonna have some new sh**," he tells XXL. "Crazy new sh**! Then we working on the album too. We haven't named it yet. The first single with Chris Brown is retarded. It's called 'Another Round,' produced by Cool & Dre and Young Lad. We got joints [on the album] produced by Rico Love; it's sounding great. "With the album, we're gonna make that music that everyone can relate too," Joe continued. "It's still gonna be hard, but it's gonna be hit mania. You know exactly what it is. The joint with Chris Brown is a super joint. I got another joint I'm trying to get Maxwell on. You know, I'm talking to the ladies. I lost that weight, I gotta talk to them."
