Fabolous & The Street Family
Loso’s Way: Rise to Power

fabolouslososway.jpgWhile achieving commercial success is no easy task for rappers, regaining respect in the street after finding fame can present an even bigger challenge. Luckily for Fabolous, who has already proved he can scan millions of units, his subsequent street tapes have always held up in the hood. Inspired by the ’05 prequel to the ’93 flick Carlito’s Way, Fab enlists his old buddy DJ Clue to host his first double mixtape, Loso’s Way: Rise to Power.

Clever one-liners continue to put Fabolous a rhyme ahead of the competition, as he proves on “Whatever I Wan’ Do,” where the kid from B-Stuy, sets up a nice double entendre: “I hear the rumors, but niggas won’t say they said it/You know Duke got a shooter like J.J. Redick.” The slick talk continues on “Murda (We Don’t Believe You),” where L-O-S-O mocks the G-Unit reverend’s change of spirit: “Might give him a full clip for standing on the pulpit/Sayin’ all that bullshit/He’s more Jim Baker than Creflo/I know Ma$e Beth, though, the nigga ain’t tef, yo.”

The majority of the two-disc set is tailor made for the boys on the block, but Fab does find time to craft a couple songs for the ladies. First, the canary-diamond-dipped MC reunites with Lil’ Mo on “Baby (Remix),” then he rides with Mariah Carey on “Don’t Forget About Us (Remix).”

Amid the 24-track effort there are some forgettable cuts. On “They Like Me,” Fab attempts to re-create Young Jeezy’s “Trap Star,” but proves the ad-libs are best left to Da Snowman. Even worse is Red Café’s strange concoction of mismatched phrases on the hook for “Bling Bloaw Pt. 2.” Aside from these miscues, Fabolous’ greezy delivery doesn’t disappoint throughout Loso’s Way, proving his name still holds weight with or without the platinum plaques.—ROB MARKMAN

  • Chris Villain

    LOL….these new york cats crack me the fuck up….the reason they aint got no lasting power is cuz they all sound the same….different voices but same style….Fab, Lloyd Banks, Papoose(papooose edgin them out though) all they do is through a bunch of punchlines(alotta corny ones at that) and it comes off as tryin to hard…and alotta of the punches are irrelevant to the previous line…..these cats need to stick to battle rappin.

  • jon longway

  • rob

  • Dre

    Hey don’t be mad at Chris… it ain’t his fault that he’s just trying to do the same shit and no one is listening. Oh that’s right, cuz Fab does it better than you. Can’t wait for the next album. Real Talk should have gone 5x platinum!!

  • Southside

    Fab gets no play down here, he doesn’t support the south and we don’t support him. I wouldn’t listen to his cd if it was free. Everyone from the East think they are superior ok they better wake up and look around.

  • chulo

  • Stapcriss

    I would say Fab ain’t the same nigga He was. when I listened to the shit “automatic feat E-40″ and “basket ball feat bow wow” released in 2003 I think, He’s flow was killin, the best I’ve eva heard And when I heard that garbage song”do the damn thing” I said fuck that this dude can’t keep it up no more.
    But I still have respect for him.

    Everybody hating on Loso are straight clowns. The kid is on top right now. It take more than Lil’ John’s beatz to prove you a real mc and Fab has done that. Plus nobody in G-Unit (fucking faggots) can see the kid. Fuck what them niggas say, fab proves he can do the dame thing. 1

  • john cochran

    FUCK VILLAIN AND SOUTHSIDE. Fab doin his thing and his flo is better than 99% of niggas in the south. The ones that can flo, like TI and Wayne, dont be talkin bout nothin. All u niggas dickridin the south need to realize that it will always eventually come back to the east.

  • Randall

    This man is crazy “who else struts past the sluts, in chain wit so much acid cuts, that it hangs much past the nuts// thats why i get followed by broads with deeper throats than the ppl at the circus that be swallowing swords”- Street Dreams 2

    “In my life i aint neva had one job/ but my watch got a squareface like spongebob”

    all u haters that think he aint doin check the sound scan and listen to some freestyles and see he aint for the streets,
