The main reason I don’t hold Fabolous in the high regard that had me buy Ghetto Fabolous ? and enthusiastically recite his Street Dreams lyrics ? while looking forward to each and every one of his features like a military child looking ahead to their parent making it home safe and sound – is dumbed down lyrics. At some point he over simplified and took his foot off the gas in terms of punchlines, like the Atlanta falcons when they gave up the biggest comeback in superbowl history ?.
Fabolous is already very laid back, so when he took the relaxation up a notch, he showed no chill like when he was making the threats that got him charged with a crime.
Lastly, in a pattern that started a while ago, New York rap has started to be overlooked. They birthed it but it moved down south, like Trae Young when he was drafted by the hawks – he’s their future. So Fabolous better take that cool mask off.
