Loso's Way [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David Jeffries
A concept album from a punch line rapper is an unattractive proposition, so it's fortunate that Loso's Way strays off topic even more than Jay-Z's American Gangster. Named after Fabolous' own feature film -- made available in a limited-edition version of the album -- Loso's Way is inspired by the Al Pacino vehicle Carlito's Way. Past a track named after the character "Pachanga" plus a couple other references within the rhymes, this is actually a standard issue Fabolous album with big singles, plenty of laugh-out-loud lyrics, and the usual redundancy. The first five tracks come at the hip-hop "up and out of the struggle" anthem from five different angles, allowing only ...

A concept album from a punch line rapper is an unattractive proposition, so it's fortunate that Loso's Way strays off topic even more than Jay-Z's American Gangster. Named after Fabolous' own feature film -- made available in a limited-edition version of the album -- Loso's Way is inspired by the Al Pacino vehicle Carlito's Way. Past a track named after the character "Pachanga" plus a couple other references within the rhymes, this is actually a standard issue Fabolous album with big singles, plenty of laugh-out-loud lyrics, and the usual redundancy. The first five tracks come at the hip-hop "up and out of the struggle" anthem from five different angles, allowing only the glorious "My Time" "Soon as I walk in/It feel like me o'clock" and the infectious "Everything, Everyday, Everywhere" to stand out. Redundant on a more micro scale, the latter track stacks money with "Let my chips Pringles up," but just one song later, the worthy single "Throw It in the Bag" is carrying a "Bag full of chips/We ain't talkin' Ruffles." Even if it's just a remix of Jay-Z's "When the Money Goes," "Money Goes, Honey Stay" is outstanding, and when fatherhood is addressed so poignantly on "Stay," it's Fab at his most inspired. While Lil Wayne's guest appearance on "Salute" is a disappointment thanks to his voice sounding very hoarse, Ne-Yo's cool swagger enriches "Makin Love," which already comes packaged in a beautiful Jermaine Dupri production. Add it all up and this not-so-conceptual-after-all album points out both the rapper's limitations and his strengths. Call it a draw.

    Awful

    If Fabolous cared more about his lyrics and music than his Twitter account, he might have made a decent album. How much talent does it take to rhyme the same words with the same words? Why does someone blatantly lie about all the ladies he is with and discuss fashion more than a woman does? Ask Frivilous.

    Not So Fabolous

    I really expected something fresher from Loso a.k.a Fabolous, yet he still makes statements like "I'm back" as if he gracefully went into semi retirement from the rap game such as Jay-Z. Well if he is in fact back, I have to say he really doesn't have any thing fresh to say to warrant him being absent. Usually when a rapper takes a hiatus and decides to make a come back you would expect them to come back inspired by something either tragic or uplifting in their lives. Those events make for the perfect fuel to rocket an album into orbit. Not the case with Loso's Way, thus making the new album dull pop drivel. Street Dreams and Ghetto Fabolous remain his most inventive works, simply because he sounds hungry for success.
