If you did the traditional bulking and cutting, I'd bulk first, then lose all the weight in a nice cut, the other way around is cutting then bulking, then a need to cut again if you have too much fat.

I'd go for muscle first, since added muscle mass will help you burn more calories by increasing your metabolism (though there are conflicting opinions about how much of a boost one can get).If you're a guy (?) then adding more muscle would be easier for you than if you're a woman. And women naturally store more fat than men, so we may need more cardio for our goals.

But, if you have a lot of fat on you, then concentrating on losing some fat first, by doing more cardio while still doing weight work (perhaps circuit-type workouts, as they are bigger calorie burners and have somewhat of a cardio effect) would be a good approach.
