[FLY RAPS] When Fabolous hit MTV in 2001 with veteran hooksmith Nate Dogg at his side—performing a new twist on an old TuPac favorite—he was a magical combination of a handful of New York’s finest. His monotone voice and penchant for seductive raps reminded me of a slightly less drowsy P. Diddy, while his streetwise skillset was much closer to Biggie’s. The former John Jackson may have come to the fore in the middle of the crossover gold rush, but throughout his career he has been careful to pepper hard-hitting raps that rep N.Y.C. with saucier R&B-tinged jams like “Trade it All” and “Baby.” Two recent singles once again showcase this duality: “So N.Y.,” leaked late last year, is a thoroughly satisfying slice of boom-bap and trash-talk. Then there’s Fab’s far more popular new single with Chris Brown, “Ready,” a sex jam that seems written exclusively for date rapists and women who wish the MC would come over and “Rodney King” their vaginas, I guess. Classy and timely! Clipse co-founder Pusha T opens, and should slay.
