More Street Dreams, Pt. 2: The Mixtape [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
Riding high on the success of one pop-crossover single after another "Trade It All," "Can't Let You Go," "Into You", Fabolous kept the cash registers ringing in 2003 with a timely holiday-season release, More Street Dreams, Pt. 2: The Mixtape. A thrown-together compilation of his previously street-released mixtape tracks, this follow-up to his Street Dreams album from earlier in the year consists mostly of freestyles Fabolous rapping over the instrumentals of previously released songs by others, along with a couple of standout remixes, a couple skits, and more. The relatively brief 45-minute sum is surprisingly listenable given its hodgepodge nature, surely ...

Riding high on the success of one pop-crossover single after another "Trade It All," "Can't Let You Go," "Into You", Fabolous kept the cash registers ringing in 2003 with a timely holiday-season release, More Street Dreams, Pt. 2: The Mixtape. A thrown-together compilation of his previously street-released mixtape tracks, this follow-up to his Street Dreams album from earlier in the year consists mostly of freestyles Fabolous rapping over the instrumentals of previously released songs by others, along with a couple of standout remixes, a couple skits, and more. The relatively brief 45-minute sum is surprisingly listenable given its hodgepodge nature, surely attributable to Fabolous' considerable MC skills. The rapper may be best known for his pop-crossover hits, most of which are anchored by sugar-sweet R&B hooks, but he's a hell of a rapper, and that comes to light particularly on these street-oriented recordings, where Fabolous doesn't compromise his skills for the masses. In particular, the remixes stand out: Fabolous steals the spotlight on the impressive remix of Joe Budden's not especially impressive "Fire" single, and Just Blaze totally flips "Can't Let You Go" for its remix, serving up a hot song with little relation to the original. Elsewhere, Fabolous hijacks often in conjunction with co-conspirator Paul Cain the beats from Half-A-Mill's "Some Niggaz" here retitled "Niggaz", Eve's "What" "Now What", Kelly Rowland's "Make You Wanna Stay" "Make U Mine", R. Kelly's "Who's That" "Faboloso", Jay-Z's "Renegade" "Renegade", the LOX's "Fuck You" "F You Too", and Lil' Kim's "This Is Who I Am" "B.K. Style". If you're mainly a fan of Fabolous' radio hits, you'll be disappointed by the utter lack of sappy slow jams here and perhaps also by the edgy gangsta posturing. Yet if you're more a fan of Fabolous' rapping and the street side of his persona, you should find much to savor on More Street Dreams, assuming you don't mind wading through a little filler.
