[artist id="1164800"]Fabolous[/artist] woke up one morning handcuffed to a hospital bed. After being shot. Whatever happened to bedside manner?
Actually, this all happened to Fab's character Loso in the new film "Loso's Way," and we have an exclusive clip from the upcoming DVD.
The flick starts off with Fabolous and one of his hustling partners being chased through the streets. Loso evades the long arm of the law, but his homie isn't as lucky. The film then fast-forwards four years, and Loso has become a big rap artist while his friend serves time in prison and eventually gets out.
Chaos prevails momentarily when Los and his Street Fam are out one night, and before they all go to their respective vehicles, an unknown assailant shoots Loso in the leg. It's all very similar to when Fab was hit in the leg by a bullet a few years back.
Loso wakes up, handcuffed to a hospital bed and the police try to stick gun charges on him and his crew after they find firearms in the rapper's SUV.
[artist id="1906546"]Styles P[/artist] plays an up-and-coming rapper named Bang, who tests Loso's resolve and street credibility by making a dis song against him. Ed Lover plays the shady head of Loso's record label, who coerces his artist to capitalize off the notoriety of being shot and turn around an LP quickly.
Swizz Beatz, [artist id="1163822"]Jadakiss[/artist], Ryan Leslie, [artist id="1237281"]Juelz Santana[/artist], Paul Cain and Albe Back are all featured in the film.
Fabolous' "Loso's Way" film and album hit stores July 28. Ne-Yo appears on the song "Makin' Love," while Trey Songz has hook duties on "Last Time," as does Jay-Z on "When the Money Goes." Lil Wayne is featured on "Salute."
