Just as J. Cole did with his return to his first sexual encounter on “Wet Dreamz”, Fabolous is bringing his listeners back to his adolescent love life. But unlike Cole’s excitement, Fabolous describes his sadness during a devastating breakup with his “Cinnamon Apple”.
Bringing us all back to what it was like to be in a relationship during the early 90’s, Fabolous gets his storytelling on during “Cinnamon Apple”. And while the Kevin Hart sample to close the track brings some humor to the track, Fabolous’ account of his failed relationship will certainly remind listers of teenage heartbreak.
A few weeks ago Eric Bellinger decided to put a twist on the classic hit “Oochie Wally”. Now right on his heels is Fabolous who is also trying his hand at Nas’ single with his own new track, “She Wildin'”.
The party anthem from Fabolous’ Christmas-released album The Young OG Project, “She Wildin'” brings back Chris Brown to join Fab as the perfect artist to handle the track’s chorus. But make no mistake, Fabolous is rarely out-shined on his own songs and “She Wildin'” is no different this time around.
For the second straight year it looks like Fabolous is going to be handing out a special gift for Christmas. Last year it was the third installment of The Soul Tape and now with the release of “Lituation” we can expect a new project under the tree this year.
The first single from his upcoming album The Young OG Project, “Lituation” has all the feelings of a Soul Tape track. And with all the success he has come by with the mixtape trio, it is no surprise Fab continues the gritty
Besides the head-scratching absurdity which was DJ Khaled‘s dialogue in the original “Hold You Down” music video, the rest of the R&B star-studded track was spot on. But as with any track which takes off for Khaled, a remix is always waiting.
After having four of the hottest crooners in the game grace the original, the “Hold You Down (Remix)” is all about the MC’s. And while Rick Ross, Ace Hood and Fabolous provide verses for the track, it is Usher’s brand new chorus which shines through on the “Hold You Down (Remix)”.
J. Cole spoke. Then it was G-Unit. Now it’s The Game who is making his feelings known about the death of Michael Brown. But he is not alone as Game has brought in a lengthy list of MC’s to raise their hands and say “Don’t Shoot”.
With the impact of the events of Ferguson capturing the nation, it is no wonder the list of rapper on “Don’t Shoot” is prolific. Joining The Game on a track which mixes “Be Free’s” heartfelt emotion and “Ahhh S**t’s” aggressiveness is Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Diddy, Fabolous, Wale, DJ Khaled, Swizz Beatz, Yo Gotti, Curren$y, Problem, King Pharaoh and TGT who all have their own points-of-view on these trying times.
First it was Trey Songz warning men about the not-so “Smart Phones”. Then it was Drake letting his girl know to not scroll too far to the left. Now DJ Mustard is being very precocious with his phone and making sure he is not handing out those very important “4 Digits”.
The most pop and radio-friendly track of DJ Mustard’s debut album 10 Summers, “4 Digits” is not only another dope joint from hip-hop’s hottest producer but a showcase for R&B rising star, Eric Bellinger. Joining these two on the track is Fabolous, who is just as secure with his “4 Digits” as he is about the details of his own upcoming album.
Other than a few guest verses, the normally busy Rick Ross has been quiet of late. He decided to end the silence though with some new material as he returns to his last album, Mastermind, to give “Supreme” the remix treatment.
The uptempo feel good vibes were already high on the original version of “Supreme” which Ross took on alone, but with the new additions to the “Supreme (Remix)” it really becomes a track to bump. Fabolous, Big K.R.I.T. and Ma$e join Rozay to not only flaunt their style but their “Supreme” lady as well.
