Ranking Fabolous' Friday Freestyles From Worst To Best
The first time I ever heard Fab was when I was 12. I heard “Can’t Deny It” and realized that he was beyond nice. You see, Fabolous is a gladiator. You can throw him in the octagon and he’ll walk out unscathed. I always refer to him as the Vince Carter of rap because at any moment, he could unleash an array of tricks that could leave you in awe. Fab is an extraordinary talent that can mesmerize you with his pen game. Lyrically, he’s been as consistent as anybody else in the rap game. Every time he drops a bar, you’re liable to do the ugly face.
Diddy Hints He's Starring In A Rush Hour Sequel
Rush Hour is something of a beloved franchise, so news of a new installment to the series is not something to joke about.

Diddy Reportedly Won't Allow His Son To Appear In Fox's "Empire"
Fox's new TV show "Empire" is becoming increasingly popular with each new episode that airs. The TV show, which stars Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson, centers around a hip-hop record label trying to go public, while dealing with various artists on the label. Thus, there's a lot of original music on the TV show (similar to "Glee"), much of which can be purchased on iTunes or streamed on Spotify following each episode.
