Fabolous Talks Joe Budden Misunderstanding, Next Album

Fabolous explains his non-beef with Joe Budden, and talks his new album.

In a recent interview with Complex.com, Fabolous sat down to discuss his recent Twitter spat with fellow emcee Joe Budden, as well as his upcoming project.

"The Joe Budden thing was really just taken out of context," said Fab of the fact that he appeared to have ignored Budden's request on Twitter to get the New York rapper on a track with him and Lloyd Banks. "I didn’t see it at first. I didn’t see his request. I was actually bullshitting on Twitter, doing something else. When I did see it, I had to make sure it was even true because people say things on Twitter and put people’s names to it and stuff."

"The first time he asked me to do a joint, it was a different set-up," explained Fabolous. "He had a bunch of other people on it and I didn’t think that worked for me, so we didn’t do it. We didn’t speak back at that point, either. We just ended up not doing it. This time he reached out, but the way he did it, people took it out of context and thought because he said, 'Are you gonna avoid me like last time?' people thought, 'Oh, does Fab not wanna get on a joint with Joe?' which led to the #FabScaredLike trending topic, which was actually funny. I don’t take Twitter that serious. It’s all in good humor. I’ve made fun of people on Twitter and it’s whatever. People made it more than it really was." Fabolous added that he would be recording the song sometime in the future.

Another thing fans can look forward to is Fabolous' next album which will serve as a sequel to his most recent effort, Loso's Way. "The next album is Loso’s Way 2. I’m putting that together now. I like to sit down with the whole scheme of things and see how I’m gonna present it. The subtitle is gonna be 'Rise To Power.' I think that’s appropriate coming off the year I had, and the fact that I’m taking that next step."

    Banks fell off the map. I never seen a artist with that much power behind him (50 Cent)have a great first album (H4M)and hardly heard from again. Fab is nice and joe b is nice but if I have to choose im rolling ya casket at the funeral. Fab is second best out of New York dont get it twisted

    • b haze

      r u serious? joe is 20 times better than fab if not a 100. did you listen to fabs last album, commercial bullshit. joe is the best in the game right now, and has been for years, and years. joe doesn't care what execs want he puts out what he wants unlike all these wack ass rappers of today. what people consider hip hop these days is r&b bullshit to me.

  • kamus365

    man i got flashbacks reading this...them desert storm days!! that was hip-hop 2me...now tho Budden & Fab went like different directions. Fab way more commercial than Joe now but he still got spit tho. he may have dumbed it down a lil for commercial but he still go in on some songs..Budden still has that emo-driven,punchline heavy (so does Fab) delivery in his raps, difference is Budden doesnt care to appeal 2 fans and Fab does. its crazy bc most of Fab fans now (commercial fans) only no Budden from that 1 song where as fans like me no em from them desert storm days!!!! #letsmakeithappen
