Throwing it back to Fabolous' mid-2000s era.

Back in July we threw it back to Fabolous 2001-2005 gems, and today we're taking a look at the second half of that decade. By compiling tracks from 2006-2010, we've revisited releases like From Nothin' To Somethin' and Loso's Way, albums that helped to solidify Fabo's legacy as one of the great New York rappers of the post-B.I.G. era.

In the list, you'll find that many of his singles from the era were collaborative hits ("Diamonds," "Brooklyn," "My Time"). Fabolous sort of perfected the R&B/rap crossover singles, working with the likes of The-Dream, T-Pain, Jeremih, and Keri Hilson to create tracks that were ready for pop radio just as much as they were intended for any other purpose. In more recent years, Fabolous has used his S.O.U.L. Tape series to showcase some of his more technical skills as an MC. We only scratch the surface of those releases this time, but it makes for a fun throwback list nevertheless.
