The O.D.: A Mixtape Daily Exclusive
According to Fabolous, the back-and-forth he had with fellow New York heavyweight Jim Jones recently on Twitter was no big deal — just jokes. It’s not going to lead into any dis records.
The same day Fab’s “Body Ya” video hit the Internet, Jones tweeted about MCs he felt were biting his style. “I just seen another rapper’s video that look just like my chain gang n scarf,” Jones wrote. “Damn, I’m sonnin these n—-az. I guess my style might body ya. Lol.’”
Loso came back on his Twitter page with more comedy, poking fun at Jones’ mixtape The Ghost of Rich Porter. “#iJustWannaKnoWhy the competition won’t stay #Dead,” he wrote. “Maybe I should [release] a new mixtape call #TiNc3 — Ghost of the Competition.”
“#iJustWannaKnoWhy ni–as think they invented Louis Vuitton??” Fab wrote later. “#nowplaying — ‘You’re Only a Customer’ by Jay Z.”
Jones came back with, “Can I at least get a thank u for gettin ur Twitter acct poppin? Lol. I’m out. I quit. I quit. Pow pow, play dead. Lol.”
Fab spoke with us on Wednesday about the situation. He says he doesn’t see things escalating.
“I don’t know where his comment came from,” Fab said. “I joked around with it too. It was kinda subliminal.
“I think it’s definitely competition,” Fab added. “But you can say things — it gets taken out of context whether you meant it as a joke or not. It could have been his opinion, but it still was thrown the way he threw it. It could have been taken in the context of you taking a shot at somebody. But I had fun with it, I made some jokes. That’s it. I’m not looking at it as I got a really big problem or East Coast/West Coast beef. I cracked a couple of jokes about it. I’m not making a dis record about it. The point I’m in, I’m focusing on career. I’m branded as an artist. I’m almost 10 years in the game. Twitter dissing isn’t important. My last mixtape states where I’m at — there is no competition. That’s on Twitter as well.”
Fab’s “Body Ya” — in which he kills everyone he comes in contact with just by being in the same vicinity — is just one of many visuals coming from his mixtape The Funeral Service: There Is No Competition 2.
“I just shot ‘I’m Raw.’ Since we were talking about ‘raw,’ we went to a meat house in Brooklyn,” the BK native explained. “It’s also a story line, same as ‘Body Ya.’ The story line starts off with me working in a meat market. Definitely a great video. It’s a great visual for a project that was a mixtape project. I wanted to expand it a little more.”
