It’s time to get fabulous because Fabolous dropped his new mixtape, ‘Summertime Shootout,’ on Nov. 26. The project from the ‘Cant’ Let You Go’ rapper’s contains some sizzling tracks featuring hip-hop stars like The Weeknd and the queen of the Barbz herself, Nicki Minaj. Click to listen!
For fans of hip-hop, today is a good day. Not only did Chris Brown, 26, release his massive new mixtape, Before The Party, but there’s new music from Fabolous, 38, as well. Fab isn’t alone, as his Summertime Shootout project has cameos from some of the game’s hottest names as well as a remix of a LL Cool J, 47, song featuring Nicki Minaj 32!
Loso released his mixtape on Nov. 26, reports Rap-Up. This blend of original tracks and remixes has some standout hits — including “Tell Ya Friends,” which features The Weeknd. Plus, we can’t ignore how Fab and Nicki put their own distinctive spin on LL Cool J’s hit, “Doin’ It,” updating the 90’s hip-hop classic for 2015. Nice.
The project, which Loso said is “a mixtape about a summertime story,” also features Jazzy, Bryson Tiller, Rich Homie Quan, Mike Davis, and Daphne Larue, just to name a few. Though it might be wintertime, everyone is feeling the summer heat thanks to this new release. Pick up Ghetto Fabolous by Fabolous HERE on Amazon.
Maybe Breezy was feeling a bit of professional jealousy from his friend, and that’s why he went and dropped Before The Party one day after Summertime Shootout was released. These two have worked together on Fab’s song “She Wildin’,” producing a song that took inspiration from Nas and the Bravehearts’ “Oochie Wally.” While Fab didn’t guest on Before The Party, maybe we’ll see these two work together again?
This is the first of two mixtapes Fab plans to drop this year. The Young OG Project 2 will be released on Christmas Day, according to HotNewHipHop.com. This follows up a long tradition by Loso, according to Rap-Up. He tends to drop new mixtapes on Thanksgiving and Christmas, with The S.O.U.L. Tape 2 and Tape 3 all getting holiday releases. So, if you want more Fabolous, start counting down the days until Dec. 25!
