Fabolous - From Nothin' to Somethin'

2007-09-03 12:09
Fabolous can't drop a rhyme unless he’s hooked up a collab. His new CD features no less than 12 ‘all-star’ cameos courtesy of Akon, Ne-Yo, Rihanna, Jay-Z, Lil' Mo and more. On the production front he has beats from Timbaland, Jermain Dupri and Swizz Beatz. Does this mean that Fab is not so F.A.B if he doesn't have another star sharing the mic with him? With so much talent on the album, surely the album should be aight, right? We let our homegrown hip-hop reviewers decide.

Do you agree with our celebrity reviewers in the video? Listen to the song clips and tell us what you think?

Here's an experiment that the best labs would not want to tackle. What happens when you play American rapper Fabolous' new CD From Nothin' to Somethin' to a bunch of musicians, rappers and b-boys? We'll... they show us they can do better than Fab.

Watch it now!

Fab rocks I don't know if you like criticising artists or just plain old clueless about HipHop but Fabolous is one of da most gifted rap artists out there.U say he can't carry a track on his own, where were U when he flowed o 'Breath' from start to end.Keep your analysis to yourself.
