Blackout Top News

In celebration of the release of his 10th solo album, The Darkside Vol. 1, the Terror Squad leader urged any fans expecting to hear the radio friendly “Lean Back,” “Make It Rain” and “We Thuggin’” to exit the club. Instead Joe ran through an assortment of his underground classics for a performance. After starting off with ‘Heavenly Father” — the Lil Wayne-assisted cut off of his new album, Joe tore through his tried and true catalog. He rocked songs like 1993’s “Flow Joe,” ‘Firewater,” “Success” and “Shit is Real (Remix),” “John Blaze,” ‘My Lifestyle” and “Gangsta.”

In tribute to his fallen protégé Big Pun, Joe invited Joell Ortiz to help with “Deep Cover (Twinz ’98).” Joell’s homage paying performance opened the floodgates for more special guests as Cook Coke Crack rocked with Redman , Diamond D, M.O.P., Buckshot, Jeru Da Damaja and Public Enemy’s S1Ws who danced to an intro for Joe’s latest P.E.-inspired single “No Problems.”
