My Shit (Remix)
Today is a good day for Fabolous fans. The New York emcee announced a new mixtape Summertime Shootout 2 with the release of a new remix of A Boogie with da Hoodie’s “My Shit.” The Summertime Shootout 2 cover art depicts a woman wiping away her tears with blue hunnids like Woody Harrelson in "Zombieland."
Joe Budden Feat. Fabolous & Tory Lanez
Budden went all out today. As promised, he dropped his Drake diss, and he gave it the fitting title of "Making a Murderer." Whether or not it ends up prompting a direct response from Drizzy, it's clear that Budden carefully studied each and every bar on his first diss track in years. Whatever happens next should be interesting.
All The Way Up (Remix) (Official)
Meek Mill Feat. Fabolous & Jadakiss
We originally heard Meek Mill and Fabolous on Fat Joe's "All The Way Up" beat, while Jadakiss' take followed soon after. Now all three verses have been assembled for the official DreamChasers release, and let's just say its a powerful combination. Now 5 minutes long, there are no shortage of bars here, and it's difficult to choose a favorite verse. Meek Mill's DreamChasers 4 is still on the way, and if this is an indication of the level of rapping we'll hear on it, it should be quite the spectacle. Stay tuned for updates on the release of Meek's upcoming tape.
All The Way Up (Freestyle)
Meek Mill & Fabolous
Just a day after Jay Z shared his first verse in recent memory over Fat Joe's surprise hit, "All The Way Up," Meek Mill and Fabolous have taken a turn, debuting their version on Funk Flex's show today. Naturally, the talking point of this version is Meek's very direct shots at Drake, as he once again criticizes him for the writing assistance he's had, as well as dropping the phrase, "Views from the projects". He also mentions his generous water bottle donation to Flint, Michigan.
Ameriie Feat. Fabolous
Remember Amerie? Responsible for classics like "1 Thing." Well, the R&B singer has returned from a lengthy hiatus, and she's taken a page from Desiigner's book and added an extra "i" to her name. She appeared on The Breakfast Club yesterday, and today, Ameriie has come out with a brand new EP, Drive, released through her independent label Feeniix Rising Ent. The album opens with a new version of "Every Time," a track that she put out in 2012.
That Chicken (Remix)
Dyme-A-Duzin Feat. Fabolous
It’s been a minute since we last heard from Dyme-A-Duzin, but when you can get a guest feature from Fabolous on your record that’s certainly going to change. And that’s exactly what happened today as the official remix to Dyme-A-Duzin’s single “That Chicken,” which dropped last summer has now surfaced.
After teasing his "Panda" freestyle last week, Fabolous unleashes the track in all its glory Wednesday morning.
A$AP Ferg Feat. French Montana & Fabolous
Beyonce's surprise album, Lemonade, which dropped after her HBO special of the same name, is currently hogging all the spotlight. Remember, though, a couple of big albums dropped yesterday, the most notable being A$AP Ferg's long-awaited sophomore effort, Always Strive and Prosper. The 18-track album is loaded with guest features, and it clearly encompasses all the best work that Ferg has put in since his last album, 2013's Trap Lord.
Black Mamba Freestyle
It's all Mamba everything for the past two days. With Kobe Bryant's final game last night, at the Staples Center in LA (which saw attendance by many a notable hip-hop face, from Kanye West to Hov to Kendrick Lamar and more), #MambaDay has been trending heavily, and we're seeing Kobe's face just about everywhere (P.S. we're among the culprits).
Right Now (Remix)
Uncle Murda Feat. Future, Fabolous & Jadakiss
Last year, Uncle Murda teamed up with Future for a Metro Boomin-produced banger called “Right Now,” and today he’s back with the official remix adding Brooklyn spitters Fabolous & Jadakiss to it.
Fabolous & Jadakiss
As he announced last month, Fabolous is teaming up with Jadakiss for a collaborative project called Freddy Vs. Jason, which will be dropping soon and acting as a retail effort on iTunes and not a mixtape.
Milly Rock (Remix)
Originally set for a Christmas day release, Fabolous’ Young OG Project 2 has unfortunately been pushed back til mid-February.
Fabolous Feat. Jazzy
Fabolous announced earlier in the week that the sequel to his Young OG Project wouldn’t be arriving on Christmas as originally planned, but instead would be dropping in February. So to make up for the unfortunate setback, the Brooklyn vet decided to unleash a new song to hold us over today called “Nu Gambino” featuring Jazzy.
Doin It Well
Fabolous Feat. Nicki Minaj & Trey Songz
Fabolous came through this afternoon with the first of three pretty significant mixtapes dropping today. In addition to Summertime Shootout, we're also expecting projects from Lil Wayne and 50 Cent to arrive later this evening. Back to Loso though, although we're quickly approaching winter, Fab brings back some of those summer vibes on Summertime Shootout.
Sheek Louch Feat. Fabolous & Whispers
Sheek Louch's "What You Want The Money For" was a perfect nod to mid-00s New York rap, while still sounding great in the car in 2015. It comes off his upcoming project Silverback Gorilla 2, which he's shared yet another inspired single from today, the Fabolous and Whispers-assisted "No Losses". It's one of many impressive feature son the project, which will also hoist collaborations with Pusha T, Jadakiss, ASAP Ferg, Ghostface Killah, Trae Tha Truth and more.
Respect My Conglomerate 2
Busta Rhymes Feat. Fabolous & Jadakiss
Busta Rhymes' 2009 album Back On My B.S. featured a track called “Respect My Conglomerate” feat Lil Wayne and Jadakiss. Six years later, he returns with the sequel, and he's formed a new conglomerate. Wayne is out, Jadakiss is still in it, as are Fabolous and Styles P. Sheek Louch is not in the conglomerate. The four veterans have all already proven their worth several times over, but they still sound hungry (Busta especially) as they trade off bars over this vintage King Karnov production like it was '96.
Jeremih Feat. Fabolous & Red Cafe
Jeremih has been dropping new tracks regularly over the last few weeks, which has us cautiously anticipating the arrival of his long-awaited album. His new track won't appear on the project, but it's definitely a worthy placeholder, as 'Mih reunites with DJ Mustard, who provided the beat on his 2014 smash "Don't Tell' Em". "Peace Sign" isn't the housey party-starter that that their last collab was, but it's all the better for it, instead opting for a dark snap groove that fits perfectly into Jeremih's Late Nights world.
Shortly after revealing that he's got two projects around the corner, Fabolous is back with "Third Shift," rapping over a vintage N.Y. beat from HamSquad. The production team shared Fab's verse, which is actually just a preview of the full song, which will also feature Ludacris and Jadakiss.
Earlier today, Fab dropped off a music video for a new freestyle to Kendrick Lamar's "Alright," produced by Pharrell Williams and Sounwave off To Pimp A Butterfly. At the same time Kendrick has chosen it as his next single off TPAB, Loso takes a stab at the beat. Although the song also appears on Stevie J's new mixtape Appreciation 8, Fab has uploaded an "unreleased version" to his Soundcloud.
Do Me No Favors
Troy Ave Feat. Fabolous & Jadakiss
If there's one thing Troy Ave has consistently done, it's rep New York. His new album, Major Without A Deal, hits iTunes tomorrow, and its full of features from New York's biggest names. Perhaps the most enticing song from a New York head's perspective would be the Fabolous and Jadakiss-assisted "Do Me No Favors," which has arrived today.
