Dyme-A-Duzin Feat. Fabolous
Back in May, Brooklyn emcee Dyme-A-Duzin broke a lengthy hiatus by getting Fabolous, one of the best from his native borough, to guest on the remix of last year's "That Chicken." The track is at once calming and haunting, a new sound for Brooklyn. But with Dyme's engrossing raps about his local streets -- and now Fabolous on the remix -- "That Chicken" is BK through and through.

Right after dissing Drake for the first time with "Making a Murderer," Joe Budden dropped off a new track featuring Fabolous and another Drizzy rival in Tory Lanez. Though "Flex" was no diss record; instead, the collab is an Araab Muzik-produced slow jam with Lanez singing on the hook and the two veteran emcees detailing intimate late-night affairs with their raps.

Bronx singer Tish Hyman has penned hits for artists like Alicia Keys, Diddy, Kanye West, and Kelly Rowland. She lent a few harmonies to Ty Dolla $ign's debut album Free TC, and Ty returns the favor by hopping on "Dreams," one of the choicest cuts on Hyman's new album Dedicated To. Also appearing on the song is Fabolous. In the "Dreams," visual, Hyman, Ty$, & Fabo link up in the studio and smoke Ls and vibe out to the music.

If you’ve been living under a rock the past few days, then you might not have heard all the drama surrounding Bay Area singer Kehlani and her former ex-boyfriends PartyNextDoor & Kyrie Irving. To catch you up to speed, it all started when PND shared a photo of Kehlani in his bed holding hands Monday morning, striking rumors she was cheating on what people thought at the time was her current b/f Kyrie Irving. Well unfortunately, all the rumors & drama got the best of Kehlani Tuesday evening, who decided to try and take her life in an apparent suicide.

Fabolous Feat. Chris Brown
While we may have to wait a couple more weeks for The Young OG Project 2, Fabolous decides to hold us over today by revisiting the first installment and sharing a new video for his Chris Brown-featured cut “She Wildin.” Watch as the two artists take over a house party and show off their dab moves in this Gerald Victor-directed clip above.

Fabolous Names His Top 5 New York Rappers
A couple of days ago, Billboard had Big Sean list his top 5 West Coast MC's of all time. Now the publication has given a more relevant category to Fabolous, asking the Brooklyn rapper to name the top 5 New York rappers to do ever do it. He rattles off the first three -- Biggie, Jay Z, and Nas -- in about a second, and then pauses before naming each of the remaining two, Big Daddy Kane and Rakim.

Fabolous' videos "Gone for the Winter" and "You Made Me" off last year's The Young OG Project have been rather cinematic. His latest TYOGP video is his most cinematic yet.
Fabolous Feat. Velous "Gone For The Winter" Video
Fabolous Feat. Velous
Despite its title, Fabolous' The Young OG Project made use of a ton of samples and interpolations of '90s rap hits. One such perpetrator of this is "Gone For The Winter," a Velous featuring cut that borrows from Nas' "Represent" (or, more accurately, Lee Erwin's "Thief Of Baghdad," but we doubt Loso scours film soundtracks from the '20s to find samples). Today, it gets a video.
Fabolous "Awwright" Video
Although it's been less than a month since Fabolous compiled all of his Friday Night Freestyles into a mixtape of the same name, he returns this Friday afternoon with another new freestyle and visual to match. For his latest stab at another man's beat, Loso takes on Kendrick Lamar's "Alright" instrumental (the original song has been chosen as Kendrick's next single off TPAB).
Fabolous Recaps Summer Jam 2015 Experience
Over this past weekend, Fabolous performed at Hot 97’s Summer Jam Festival, where he decided to put on for his city and have a “concert within a concert” during his set.

Fabolous Feat. Tish Hyman
Fabolous' new video for "You Made Me" kicks off with a Christopher Lloyd lookalike counseling him, and then goes into a full-blown "Back To The Future" concept, complete with a Delorean. In Loso's past, it looks like his girl left him for Cipha Sounds, who appears throughout the video, and that he got turned down my a few people while trying to promote his music.
Fabolous Remembers His First DJ Clue Freestyle
Fabolous recently sat down with MTV News’ Rob Markman to discuss the origin of his name and to talk about the first time he freestyled for DJ Clue. During the 3-minute chat, Fab reminisced on the time he had a meeting with DJ Clue at the Hot 97 studios, where he thought he was just going to chop it up and spit a freestyle for him, but instead was thrown straight on the air and asked to freestyle live with Noreaga.

Fabolous Feat. French Montana
Fabolous hit us with the Young OG Project on Christmas day, so of course, New Year's Eve was just around the corner. "Ball Drop," one of the highlights for the album, seemed to be written just for the event, but we're only getting the visual for the track now. Naturally, Fab and French Montana take to Times Square in the clip for the party record rockin' fur and stuntin' in front of a disco ball like it's 1999.
Jordan Bratton Feat. Fabolous "Danger" Video

Late last year, Jordan Bratton recruited Fabolous for a feature on his buzzing single “Danger”, and now the duo are teaming up for a new music video for it. Directed by Harrison Boyce, Jordan calls on some rebels with ski-masks and hits an abandonded warehouse with Fabo to present us this dark and abstract visual. Its in support of his latest mixtape, The Grey Area Project. Look for a follow up from Jordan to arrive later this year.
