Fabolous is in the giving spirit this holiday season. The new Roc Nation signee — he’s inked a management deal with Jay Z’s imprint — announced he’ll be releasing ‘The Young OG Project’ on Christmas day.
The new album arrives after he revealed his ‘Loso’s Way 2’ LP would be pushed to the back burner. The Brooklyn, N.Y. MC, who just celebrated his 37th birthday in November with a ’90’s-themed party, will deliver tracks reminiscent of the “golden era of hip-hop” on ‘The Young OG Project.’
“I was introduced to hip-hop in the ’80s but the ’90s is when it flourished and you saw different people, different styles and different regions emerge — it was a very diverse and versatile time and that’s another reason why it sticks to me,” Fab told MTV.
The rapper’s album, which will be led by the single ‘Lituation,’ will embody a ‘90’s nostalgic feel, featuring flipped old school beats and new material.
