Fabolous Plans Concept Album Based on Film

Fabolous recently announced to MTV News that he will be following in Jay-Z’s footsteps with a planned concept album based on an unidentified film. The Brooklyn native explained to MTV’s Mixtape Monday that he feels he will be able to finish the project in record time because of the framework he’s working with, and he plans to drop the first single this May. Much like Jay’s recent American Gangster LP—which was inspired by the Denzel Washington movie of the same name—Fab plans on reinterpreting scenes and dialogue from the movie on the album. “What Jay-Z did [with 'American Gangster']… he took that Frank Lucas character and put it in the frame of his Jay character,” Fab told MTV. “That’s what I wanna do. I don’t wanna say I that I’m actually the character, but take some of his scenarios or some things I went through and tell it in my tone.” While the Def Jam MC isn’t yet ready to reveal the source of his inspiration, he already has some ideas about who he wants to handle production. DJ Toomp, Kanye West, Just Blaze and Polow Da Don are all names that he’s currently considering.

    Fab is a dope rapper, but I think dude is just jumping on the bandwagon.

  • Emissary

    Where the fuck is the originality here?…and all of the fucks condoning this are the type of fans that shoved hip-hip into the state it is in now(bitchassness)….After Real Talk Fab Joe fell the fuck off and he’s been washed up ever since he handed in that trash ass From Nothing To Something…fuck a mixtape too make a fucking classic album I’m tired of hearing niggas say this and that about fucking mixtapes, make a ALBUM.

    Fab is washed up

  • Shawty J

    Loso is a talented rapper, I wouldn’t go as far as to say he’s washed up, but obviously he’s got nothing to rap about. I remember listening to his second album when my friend got it and while the verses weren’t bad, all of the songs were pretty much the same thing over and over again. He should probably work with some producers that can help him come with concepts instead of using a movie for inspiration, he may as well be using ghostwriters.

  • Emissary

    I wouldn’t go as far as to say he’s a talented rapper

  • Mista WANG

    so i assume “Concept Albums” iz da shit now huh?…..

    go on Fab…go on

  • Emissary

    This nigga Fab is a straight up dick eater…and he says the same shit on every record…the verse he just laid on the feedback remix is the exact same verse from paper touchin…he washed up

    • http://www.xxlmag.com the kid

      emissary ur a bitch , every siite im on ur always talkin shit on fab, hes doin his thing,hes a professional rapper now if u were better at rapper u could talk shit , but u ain so shut ur mouth and enjoy this shit.
      p.s. the paper toucin remix and feedback remix versus arent the same so idk wtf ur listenin to

  • Tragic

    Fab is done, like a burnt steak. Doing an album like Jay is str8 biting. Admitting where he got the idea isnt any better. Its sad we dont see these guys as one-hit wonders, instead we have to endure watching their feeble attempts to make another hit. God bless the one-hit wonders.

    P.S. He aint even made enuf cash to fix that chipped grill of his. Guess those throw backs set him back on his secured Visa card. W.E.A.K

  • Ray

    fabs is legit so i’ll check for it..i been on fab since the i shot ya freestyle no homo. and most of you niggaz dont know about that

    p.s. the gangsta grillz mixtape iz official
