    Have you ever been listening to a hip-hop album from top to bottom and realized that every word, every beat and every cadence is an almost perfect representation of the city you're from? Have you ever taken a step back and noticed how much an album "sounds" like a very distinct place? That is the power of hip-hop albums; they serve as city soundtracks.

Gary Gray have been working on. But will this be just another "music inspired by the film"-style soundtrack? Or something bigger?

    The hip hop crew is an essential part of success. Whether big or small, every rapper has an entourage.

    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.
