It’s the new single this Monday, man, city ain’t never gonna be the same, streets ain’t gonna be the same man. Funk Flex is gonna be dropping that sh*t this Monday.

Rap pioneer DJ Premier recently said his signature sound would be featured on the hip-hop heavyweight’s next solo project.
“Speaking of Fat Joe, I’m on his new album,” Preemo recently toldradio personality Tim Westwood. “He called me and said ‘Preem, this album is straight gutta’ so I gave him a nice little nasty head-nodding evil Premier joint. Be ready for that. That’s just the warm-up.” (“Tim Westwood TV”)
The album features both commercial records and street tracks inspired by his fans.
“This album, I just wanted to take it to the streets crazy,” Joe said in an interview. “When I go on tour I see a lot of my fans that are real loyal. They all kept telling me, ‘Yo, Joe we want you to come back to the hardcore.’ I tried to make them happy so I just took it all the way to the dark side. I’m just trying to give ‘em that balance of that real street gritty Fat Joe — the gangsta early Fat Joe — but at the same time who also knows how to make hit records.” (VIBE)
