Ghetto Fabolous [Explicit Lyrics]

Even if you haven't heard of Fabolous by name yet, you've probably heard him on the radio, tearing up verses on hits by Lil' Mo Based on a True Story's "Superwoman Pt. 2" and Mary J. Blige "Family Affair" from No More Drama. With the release of his Ghetto Fabolous, this DJ Clue protégé shows that he's out to conquer both the airwaves and the streets. The disc's first single and standout track, "Can't Deny It," combines Fab's monotone flow think one part Mase, one part Jay-Z with a signature Nate Dogg hook. Fabolous knows that he's got the hip-hop and R&B angle locked, and on the Timbaland-produced "Right Now and Later On," the young playboy jokes that it's "so funny how I suit the women...show money from ...

Fabolous knows that he's got the hip-hop and R&B angle locked, and on the Timbaland-produced "Right Now and Later On," the young playboy jokes that it's "so funny how I suit the women...show money from Superwoman." But cutesy rhymes aside, this kid is really writing lyrics for his streetwise peers, as he flips Biggie lines on Rockwilder's "Get Right" and gets the club to holla with the Neptunes-produced "Young'n." With his jiggy debut, Fabolous certainly lives up to his moniker. Ryan Crosby
All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
From out of nowhere, Fabolous swooped onto the hip-hop scene in summer 2001 with this big-money debut album and a sure-fire hit "Can't Deny It". It also didn't hurt that Fabolous' rhymes happen to fit right in the with the zeitgeist of the moment, exhibiting somewhat of an East Coast variation of the bling bling style synonymous with Southern rap. Besides Jay-Z's occasional departure into materialism and/or hedonism à la "I Just Wanna Love U," the East Coast didn't really have a young, icy player -- at least not since the popular downfall of Bad Boy following the Notorious B.I.G.'s death. So if all this sounds a bit calculated, that's probably because it is. The flagship for DJ Clue's Desert Storm label, Fabolous is targeted at a specific niche, and he's well positioned. You know this before even hearing the music, just by glancing over the credits: big-money, of-the-moment producers like the Neptunes, Rockwilder, and Timbaland drop beats, and big-name, all-over-the-airwaves rappers/vocalists like Ja Rule, Lil' Mo, Jagged Edge, and Nate Dogg contribute some hooks -- these are can't-miss artists capable of propelling an unknown like Fabolous to overnight stardom. And that's exactly how it worked, thanks to the Rick Rock-produced, Nate Dogg-graced "Can't Deny It," a song that conveniently lifts a trademark 2Pac line for its hook "I can't deny it, I'm a f*ckin' ridah," from "Ambitionz as a Ridah". As calculated as it may be, it's an irresistible hook; unfortunately, the remainder of the album isn't nearly as alluring.

    I Can't deny it

    I dont even want to wast to much time talkin about how hot this album is. It's a straight front to backer. In my opinion it's a classic because not only is every song hot but it's so versitile from "KEEPIN IT GANSTA" to "TRADE IT ALL" his lyrics and metaphors are so clever and his voice and rhyme scheme is off the chain this cd is about 3 yrs. old now but if you dont got it get it.

    Fabolous is king of metaphors, throwbacks, style.

    I mean, no rapper out there right now is as creative as fab. You have to listen to the words on his bars, like ''not even mike's seen the jordans in the colors I have''- I mean, thats creative. alot of rappers flow the same type of word flow, but fab is creative using metaphors not seen before. His style outside of the booth is exceptional too. Street Dreams is going to be even more hoppin. One Love.

    He only's got PHAT BEATS

    If it were'nt for Clue's beats he'd still be on the corner hustlin because his voice gets on my nerves.He does got some ill lyrics but he should just stick to writing them and not composing them.

    Ghetto Fabolous is a Breakthrough

    D. J. Clue has done it once again. One year after releasing ¿The Professional Part II¿ the Brooklyn based record producer introduced the world to Fabolous; a new to the scene rapper who has made a name for himself thus far by appearing in songs by 112, lil¿ Mo, Mary J. Blidge, and 2 previous tracks on the D. J. clue CD¿s (the Professional and its sequel.) The album¿s highlights are the hit single ¿Can¿t deny it¿ (featuring Nate Dogg) and songs with Ja Rule, Lil¿ Mo, and Jagged Edge. Fabolous has a laid back style which can easily be compared with ex-Bad Boy sensation Mase (who found God and became a preacher.) Fabolous even jokes in one of his songs, ¿OK, so I rap a little faster, but do I really sound like a rapper turned to pasture.¿ His monotone verses are a nice contrast to DJ Clue¿s unique beats. Fabolous¿ greatest asset is his clever lines. For lyrics¿ fans such as myself, this CD is full of lines which will make you smile just thinking about how he came up with that. The only problem I found with the CD is that a few of the songs turn out to be duds. There are eight very high quality songs along with four decent songs and five that I just skip through. However, the eight tracks worth listening to are equal in quality to some of the greatest hip-hop songs of all time. With DJ Clue as the executive producer you know that Fabolous will continue to shine in the spotlight and have the widest variety of guest appearances of anyone in the industry.
