Fabolous Says Chris Brown's Issues With Rihanna Stalled

Fabolous wrapping up "Loso's Way 2," says he was able to adapt to the current change in music without compromising on "Loso's Way 2."

Fabolous’ Chris Brown-assisted record “Ready” may have been released just a few months ago, but according to the Brooklyn rapper, the record was completed well over a year ago. While speaking with DJ Kay Slay recently, Fab shared a few details about The Runners-produced record and stated that it took a year and a half to release “Ready” because he didn’t want to drop the song while Brown was dealing with the backlash from his 2009 altercation with Rihanna.

The Loso’s Way rapper also touched on the newly-released “When I Feel Like It,” which features Atlanta emcee 2 Chainz.

“Even the record that I just released. The joint with Chris Brown…I actually did that record a year and a half ago. Before we even released it,” said Fabolous. “Chris…had the thing with Rihanna and all that so we gave that space just to clear. That was a touchy situation. We wanted to let everything he had to get out of the way done and then we released it. Just so the radio could feel me back in the streets on the radio. You know what I’m saying? And then everybody would ‘Oh okay, Fab is back.’ We got a record going with 2 Chainz recently…In the meantime while I’m preparing this gourmet meal that I’m cooking up.”

Although Fabolous has managed to hold fans over with the release of a handful of mixtapes, he did confirm that his next album, Loso’s Way 2, is “wrapped up.” And although Hip Hop has likely evolved since the release of Fabolous’ last studio album, he says he has no plans on compromising with Loso’s Way 2.

“The next album is almost wrapped up man,” Fab revealed. “It’s called Loso’s Way 2. I’ve been working on it for quite a long time man. I just wanted to really show—it’s a change in the sound of music, but I still wanted to adapt to that change, but also stay in what I do. Not compromise myself. So, within that time I also put out some mixtapes to let people know that I wasn’t dead somewhere. At the same time I was still working on the project getting it together, but we there man.”

A release date for Loso’s Way 2 has not yet been set, but in January of this year Fabolous did reveal the names of the artists featured on the album. Among them were Rick Ross, Young Jeezy, John Legend, and Future.

With a debut album that was released well over a decade ago, Fabolous has gone on to release a total of five studio albums. Loso’s Way, the rapper’s most recent studio album, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart when it was released in 2009.

  • Gucci The realest
    lol Faboulous with his babyface talking always this gangsta shit but this nigga is a fraud. Listen to Gucci then you have real gangsta rap
  • Gucci Mane Special Forces
    Gucci Mane is the realest rapper and heres why. - all other rappers rap about being gangster shooting and killing but they havent done it. - Eminem raps about killing he hasnt. - Jay z raps in open letter about sending shots he hasnt. - T.I. snitch to the feds - Young Jeezy was never bmf - 50 Cent snitch and was never in jail but a youthcamp - Game was never a banger but lived the life of his brother in his lyrics - Nas Escobar never sold drugs - Ice Cube never was a gangbanger - Dr Dre never was a gangbanger - Snoop was never a crip - 2pac was a ballerina and never sold drugs after he become famous he was doing some stupid stuff like beating and shooting at people because he though he could get away with it. Without Suge Knight 2pac was just a skinny motherf*cker. - Mobb deep are the biggiest cowards in rap they are short as midgets and keep talking this g sh*t but never did g sh*t. - JA-RULE IS THE BIGGEST CLOWN IN HIPHOP WITH TOTALLY NO STREETCREDIBILITY! Be in jail for smoking weed, carrying a gun or tax evasion is for pussies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - Faboulous was never a gangsta. Dude has a babyface and would better be in a boyband then try to be a hard rapper - Most of the rappers rap about stuff they havent done yet you all support them and say its real rap. - When rick ross does it you all claim he is fake and say its fake rap. This shows that hiphop fans are hypocritical and all these real hiphop fan wanna be's are just some unjustified haters whose opinions are just as irrelevent as the swag fag rapper fans. BIG GUWOP KILLED A MAN HE WAS A DRUG DEALER BEFORE RAPPER HE HAS STREET CREDENTIALS HE IS THE ONLY RAPPER THAT RAPS ABOUT FACTS THERE FORE BIG GUWOP IS THE REALEST RAPPER IN THE RAP GAME AND THATS A FACT!

    Niggas here hatin on fab haven't heard his mixtapes. Fab is a genius with the pen. He has punchlines, he has flow, he has story telling ability, he can rap about weed, gangsta shit, real shit, conscious shit, all that. And he does it well. There's a dif between dick riding and respecting the mans talent. There is also a dif between hating and just saying you dont like someone. If Fab is C class then more than half these rappers arent even in the alphabet.

    Drake has prevented Chris Brown from releasing an album. No one gives a fuck about Rihanna. After the YMCMB crew ran through her once, no one ever called her back. She doesn't pull any strings in the rap game. Drake is the king of rap and what he says goes. Chris Brown really fucked up by beefing with Drake.

      what I meant to say there is that Drake cream-pied my asshole and it is now seeping

      Fall back, Fabolous is a trend setter. He does dumb his music down for the mainstream, which is pretty disappointing because he's one of the best rappers IMO.
    • O_o
      trend setter lmao......all he do is jump on the current trend

    Should have delayed that song permanently. I'm a fan of Fab but "Ready" may be the worst song from him that I have heard.

      Huh? That song was hot. His worst song is probably the joint with jeezy.
