Veteran Bronx rapper Fat Joe hopped on a plane early in the morning the evening at the release party for his brand new album, The Darkside Vol. 1, to appear on “Chelsea Lately.”

During his sitdown with Chelsea, the rapper reminisced about being the first rapper to “pop her cherry,” meeting the Chinese Fat Joe, how he was eating lion soup during the recording process of The Darkside, and why and how he got he nickname Joey Crack.

The Darkside is in stores now.
