    Fab has never really followed a trend. Most ny rappers sound like they're from the south & even tho fab does his mixtape shit over southern beats, his actual singles or albums for that matter never really sound like whatever is going on at the time. There's a fine line between trying to stay relevant & just plain out following a trend. As far as him stepping up & trying to be that nigga in ny, I think he should've been felt that way, but ny doesn't have they're own sound right now, but they need somebody to give them an identity & it might just be him idk...

    He's Always Been Aiight To Me...His Over reliance On Punchlines And RnB Hooks Killed It For Me...This Nigga Always Made Panty Musik
  • So he wanna be that nigga for NY? I wanna see if he can do it. I think he could of been did this, but I feel that he is lazy, just like Banks, and a few other NY artist. He may have a little more hustle then Banks, but he still seems a like a lazy dude someone that got comfortable where he was at, and just being that dude that would pop up as a feature on a hot joint; or would drop a hot single off a mixtape.

    He never captured that energy and ran with it once he had it; so I really want to see what he has planed, and if he really has that desire to be that nigga. Soul Tape 2 gave him some good buzz, lets see what he do with this Loso Way II joint.

    It's like all the NY niggas from that era have short term revelations that they should actually try...It happens like once a year...Jim, Fab, Juelz, Sha Stimuli, Skyzoo, Grafh, Red Cafe, Banks(especially Banks)...Outta nowhere they just decide that they should run the city and take over the game...Then they just fall back again...

    Fab is on the right path with Loso's Way, that album was a very good album. Songs like Pachanga, Stay,etc show he has the ability to make great hiphop record and music with substance. Where he fucks up is his singles are too cookie cutter and formulaic (featuring hot r and b singer and talking about tricking).

    Fab needs to learn how to make singles that commercially successful but isn't on some (let me take you shopping).

    Agree, but the diff between fab & all them other niggaz, is they all have that old grimey ny type shit. Fab can actually branch of & actually rap over a diff type of sound. Not saying he's ny's savior anything but he's more talented in that aspect compared to banks & them

    Fab's live show sucks. He's too busy being stuck in 'persona' mode and fails to just blank out and give his all let loose on stage. Nothing 'iconic' about that at all.

    The same could stand as a metaphor for his career actually.
