Today's throwback record of choice belongs to the New York staple Fabolous, from his mixtape More Street Dreams Pt. 2: The Mixtape. The project was actually a commercial release, debuting on the Billboard 200 at #28 in 2003, following his album Street Dreams.
While we're still patiently awaiting Loso's Way 2: Rise To Power (and the rapper recently dropped off a freestyle of "Who Do You Love" featuring Trey Songz), we decided it was time to put some old school Loso in rotation, and what better track than one detailing life in his native city.

Maybe wouldn't be a million kids wit they faces on containers
If cops pursue the same way they chase us entertainers
In the hood, a few big faces and a chain a-
Get metal in ya mouth like braces and retainers
Even the young bucks be scheming on somebody change
Tryin a sell somebody 'cain, before they even potty trained
You can smooth talk your way into a hottie brain
Have her suckin long enough to leave a nigga body drained
