Fabolous, There Is No Competition 2: The Funeral Service

Fabolous & DJ Drama
There Is No Competition 2: The Funeral Service

Beats: XL
Lyrics: XL
Originality: XL

Fabolous has made a name for himself crafting female-friendly hits like last year’s “Throw It In The Bag.” But he doesn’t want anyone to forget he came into the game murdering MCs. So on his long-awaited mixtape, There Is No Competition 2: The Funeral Service—the sequel to Fab and DJ Drama’s 2008 project—the Brooklyn rapper utilizes his exceptional wordplay and smug delivery to black out on the competition.

Throughout the mixtape, killing the competition is a running theme. On the intro, “The Wake,” Fab raps, “This is the Holocaust, rap genocide/Ike Turner, take that bitch, slaps in the ride.” Fab’s rap foes are better off dead on “Suicide 2,” as he presents a list of suicidal suggestions for rappers that think they can compete on his level. Cam’ron and Vado play accomplice on the menacing “Body Bag,” as Fabolous runs through some of the ways he’d like to bring death to his enemies.

In fact, the Grim Reaper of rap is so unrelenting in following the theme here that, at times, he ends up beating a dead horse. Outside of the Nicki Minaj-assisted “For The Money,” the majority of the mixtape finds Fab digging deep to find new ways to describe death.

Ultimately, it’s a small price to pay for slaughtering the competition. Save for the long delay in its release TINC2 delivers that lethal product DJ Drama and Fabolous had long been promising, with deadly precision. —Chris Yuscavage

    • that nigga

      My thoughts exactly. But Part 2 is a banger, tho.

  • GregSIDE

    Best mixtape in a minute. I know Fab stays away from beef but I wish he really would kill these bull shit rappers. Oh yeah, did anybody notice Lloyd Banks on the tape. Fuck 50. If Fab and Banks teamed up just 4 a whole mixtape….

    • STOP ROCKIN SILVER & CZs

      i know right!!, a fab & bank$ collabo would be…WoW…i dont even have a word to describe it, as long as it was some strict street hood shit it’ll be FIRE aKa piff, aKa crack smoke, aKa the hottezt mixtape in yearsss. fab reached out to bank$ awhile ago stating he wanted to work with bank$. maybe bank$ dont like the nigga, i dunno…fab turned commercial though wit that weak ass throw it in the bag bullshit. i still keep collabo fabo in rotation though, KEEPIN IT GANGSTAAA…”niggaz dont think im still shaving crack, cuz i’ll pull up ina truck witta system that’ll make the pavement CRACKK!!” awww man…fab needs to go to his old roots, nigga was a FUCKIN PROBLEM.

  • chiff

    fabo killin it

  • AZ40

    This mixtape was okay the only reason I say that is because it wasn’t that great of a mixtape to have been delayed so long. I don’t think it was worth such a long wait. The lyrics were hot and most of the beats were too, I just have a problem with how long he took to put it out. He knocked it back from christmas to march

  • FUCK ALL YA NIGGAS, BUSHWICK IN SON!

    FAB, MURDERED THAT SHYT! HOW THE HELL CAN SOME ONE SAY ITS REPETITIVE, OR THAT HE’S BEATING A DEAD HORSE, WHEN THE MIXTAPE TITLE SPEAKS FOR IT SELF?!!!!!! THATS LIKE WATCHING GLADIATOR AN SAYING “ITS TOO MUCH FIGHTING IN THE AREANA” FUCKING RETARDS LOL…

    FAB WENT AT EVERY NIGGA CLAIMING TO BE THE BEST OR HARDEST OUT NOW. YES, INCLUDING WAYNE!!! HE WOULD MAKE BANKS, JUELZ AND WAYNE LOOK LIKE HIS OFFSPRING SON, COME ON?!!!

  • PDuBz

    Fabs problem is he cant make money selling albums cause he has no promotion. When it comes to mixtapes, freestyles and features on tracks he falls second to non. this mix tape is crazy!!! but watch your mouth im not the best insult taker, i makem call all the yellow tapers and chalk tracers!!! just listen to this mixtape a little closer

  • wickwickwack

    he didnt kill anything …he sounds lost,the mixtape bores real quick
    how often can u say the same thing again and again ,just with other words

    reviews shouldnt d*ckride,he s a dope mc but lets be honest,this one is a big fail

    i m not sure he proved his point …ask the competition

  • mr jamez
