It's Christmas day, which means you can currently cop Fabolous' new album The Young OG Project on iTunes right now. In case you want to hear what you're in for, we've got a stream for Loso's collaboration with the hook master Chris Brown.
Fabolous is planning to take fans back to the '90s with his upcoming album The Young OG Project, due out on Christmas day. With the '90s era of hip-hop sitting heavy in his mind, we got Loso to reel off his top five reasons on why he loves the '90s.
Fabolous' whole campaign centered around his new album The Young OG Project is the '90s. The album was inspired by '90s music, and so he's going full force with that motif for the album roll out, from the cover art release to his promo.
When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music.
Fabolous took his career to the next level when he signed with Def Jam in 2006, but we've just learned that he could've opted to go a very different route. In a new interview with Hot 97, Loso reveals that he rejected an offer from G-Unit around the same time.
This is our weekly rundown of what's new and notable at the top of our charts.
The charts were absolutely stacked with worthy contenders this week, including new tracks from Fabolous, Chief Keef, Kanye West and Chance the Rapper.
Fabolous is prepared to give his fans a gift on Christmas day, with his Young OG Project slated to drop on December 25th. The New York spitter already dropped off an image for The Young OG Project when he first announced it, but he's decided to go with something a bit different for the final cover art.
Opening with the New Years Rockin' Eve countdown from December 1989, Fabolous' new "Ball Drop" single sets out on a mission to bring things back twenty years to 1990.
