In an interview with Oakland rapper Mistah F.A.B. spoke on a variety of topics including his new project I Found My Backpack, the death of Hyphy, and his project with producer Alchemist.

The rapper explained that a number of people have placed the blame on him when it came to the lack of interest in hyphy music, a type of music that originated in the Bay Area in the ’90s.  

“I felt like a lot of people try to blame me for the unsuccessful attempt of the Bay Area when they were thriving with the whole movement, things like that,” Mistah F.A.B. revealed to “People tried to put it on me, ‘Well you did the Yellow Bus stuff and if you [wouldn’t have] did that we would have made it.’ And I was like ‘Wow, really?’ I make my own lane. I did a lot of things. I helped a lot of people. And I did for a lot of people outside of music. And it was just funny to me how everybody was trying to look for somebody to blame.”

According to Fab his new project, I Found My Backpack, marks a return to his Hip Hop roots and is some of his “best work up to date.”

“It’s showing a plethora of styles as well as my ability to take one genre and borough it and dig deep down into it,” said Mistah F.A.B. “And show people that it’s bigger than just party music and things like that. I have a diversity as an artist and an ability to cover the board. I’m very broad with my style and the things I bring to the table.”

Mistah F.A.B. also revealed that a number of his projects, including one with Alchemist, have been delayed because of other endeavors.

“Me and Alchemist started working on our album then Eminem signed him up to [be] his deejay so he went on tour and got super busy,” F.A.B. explained. “But we got records. It’s just crazy cause we’ll start these records and we all get hectic schedules. You get busy…A lot of the projects I announce most of them are at least like 80 percent complete.”
