[url id=”http://www.mtv.com/music/artist/fabolous/artist.jhtml”]Fabolous[/url] couldn’t wait to release his remix of “Throw It in the Bag” — he dropped the retooling of his hit single Monday, complete with a guest spot from Drake. The track also samples The-Dream’s “Fancy.”
“Me and Drake, we just met each other in passing on the road,” Fab told MTV News. “We kicked it a few times. We kept ending up in the same circles. Eventually we figured out we wanted to work. I had the remix. I had the beat for a minute … I also didn’t just want to do the regular remix, have the same typical remix that everybody is doing where they keep the same beat and get the select few MCs [to appear]. Drake was new — everybody got wind of Drake behind the success of his mixtape and ’Best I Ever Had.’ I figured that would an interesting move. I reached out and he was like, ’Yeah.’ I just sent it to him.”
The remix may be included with Loso’s Way as a special iTunes bonus. As for the “Loso’s Way” movie , it ends on a cliffhanger. The film revolves around an MC named Loso who navigates his way through the music industry, but faces antagonism from an up-and-coming rapper named Banged, played by Styles P.
“Styles gave a real street appeal,” Fab said of his friend’s performance. “It felt genuine. I wanted whoever the dude who did that part to feel genuine. Styles definitely gave that appeal to the role.”
Although Styles came off authentic in his acting stint, Fab says it was humorous watching his real-life friend dis him.
“It was funny … he was acting, but you had to make it feel genuine,” Fab added. “Styles might go and get an Oscar behind that — just remember to say my name when he goes for the award.”
