Fabolous channels his Bishop from Juice for his latest visual off The Young OG Project. As a fan of that movie and the legendary 2Pac role, I’m pressing play. Join me above.
Fabolous, apparent original owner of the Kendrick TPAB “Alright” beat, let loose his version and visual for it with this quick-hit video above. I enjoyed his slick verses on it and now “Awwright” is stuck in my head. Time will tell if that’ll seep into a listen of the original. Solid stuff though from Fab, regardless.
Fabolous hinted at this last week and comes through today — the full mixtape drop of his Friday Night Freestyles series, which features all of the recent months’ throwback grooves and a couple new ones with the likes of Joe Budden and Stack Bundles featuring. Indulge below:
Fab steps out the DeLorean — like, a legit one — for the new video to “You Made Me” off his Young OG Project. Fresh, man. Everything he’s been dropping lately: p solid.
Fabolous sits down with Rob Markman of MTV News for an interesting interview appropriately dropped on #FBF Flashback Friday. It’s fitting because Fab recalls his first ever DJ Clue freestyle back in 1998, which Markman likened to getting your video on World Star Hip Hop today.
Fab not only goes through and remembers lines on the freestyle with N.O.R.E. on it as well, but he also shares how he got the name Fabolous in the first place. I’m sure the story’s been out there, but it was new to me. And yes, it’s a pretty shrug your shoulders moment involving DJ Clue. Watch and hear it below and keep it locked for Fab’s Friday night freestyle for the 6th week in a row later tonight.
UPDATE: As expected, scroll below the interview for Fabolous’ take on Mobb Deep’s “Quiet Storm” (no C.J. Watson.)
