Loso's Sport

Fabolous: Make Me Better Ft. Ne-Yo (Prod. by Timbaland)

From: From Nothin' To Somethin' (Def Jam, June 12, 2007)

May 25 - 29, 2007 I was home, Harlem - Sugar Hill subdivision, vacationing. The monocromatic theme music of all passing cars, barbershops and the like was the above feature. Most audioblogs proffer the video. Instead, my soothsayer voice(s) have reserved me second behind the Tinman Has It to furnish audio.

Loso's been dumb-nice get a late pass...step!

Shiftlessly paraphrased from Wikipedia (though I am truly inundated here at the plantation):

John David Jackson (born November 18, 1977), better known as Fabolous, is a Grammy-nominated rapper of African-American and Dominican descent from Brooklyn who became a mainstream star after his debut single "Can't Deny It" (a remake of Tupac Shakur's "Ambitionz Az a Ridah" from All Eyez on Me) from 2001 (see 2001 in music). Since then, he has had several additional successful releases.
Before receiving mainstream popularity, Fabolous released a single entitled, "If They Want It" in 1998 under his old moniker, Fabolous Sport. This song was released by Def Jam Recordings on the album DJ Clue? The Professional. It is also available on the DJ Kool Kid Mixtape entitled "Pound For Pound" featuring Fabolous and Jadakiss. In the year 2000, he released a second single through Elektra Records entitled, "Gotta Be a Thug". This track can be found on DJ Clue Presents Backstage Mixtape (Soundtrack).
Fabolous' first popular single, "Can't Deny It", was released in late summer 2001. He would later be nominated for a Grammy for his collaboration on the remix of Dip It Low by Christina Milian in 2004. His popularity later grew when he remade one of Tamia's hits called "Into You" in 2003 along with Tamia - this has been one of his most popular singles to date.
After his discovery, DJ Clue in 1998 hired a handful of producers, rappers, and vocalists for Fab's debut album Ghetto Fabolous. Fabolous was teamed with Nate Dogg to produce his first single. The song was charted in the Billboard Top 100, and the subsequent album, Ghetto Fabolous, achieved platinum certification. The Street Dreams (album) followed in 2003 with another platinum certification, and Real Talk was released in 2004, which went gold. His fourth studio album, From Nothin' to Somethin', was initially scheduled for release in December 26, 2006, but was moved back following the rapper's shooting, first to March 27 2007 , then even further back to April 17, 2007, and then even further back, to May 1, 2007, and more recently to Def Jam’s officially announced June 12, 2007.
Fabolous has made guest appearances on tracks by many different artists including Mary J. Blige, Tamia, Usher, Jennifer Lopez, Don Omar, Christina Milian, Cassidy, Amerie, Mariah Carey, Bow Wow, Lil Mo, Lloyd Banks, Benzino, B2K, P. Diddy, Young Jeezy, E-40, Joe Budden, Nate Dogg, The Game, Lil' Skeeter, Xzibit, Steve Kerr, JoJo Pellegrino, Busta Rhymes, The Clipse, Rah Digga, Danny Saber, Hot Karl, Philly's Most Wanted, Sheek Louch, Miri Ben-Ari, Trina, Mobb Deep, Missy Elliott, Ras Kass, M.O.P., Red Cafe, Nature and Janet Jackson, as well as an upcoming collaboration with Korean singer Se7en. As of 2006, his latest release is the mixtape Loso's Way. The lead single is "Smokin' and Sippin'" featuring Paul Cain and Magno which was produced by CHOPS.
Along with fellow rapper Jay Z, Fabolous was challenged by John Cena to a battle rap on WWE Heat prior to WrestleMania XIX. Both rappers declined, so John Cena came up and further "dissed" the two rappers with phony cardboard cutouts of the two (with Jay Z featured as Austin Powers and Fabolous as Mini Me).
Fabolous is currently planning a clothing line released through the Rich Yung Society.
