The O.D.: A Mixtape Daily Exclusive
We all know Funeral Fab is “Nyyyyyyyyccce!” But he’s also a nice guy. Earlier this year, Fabolous had homecoming ceremonies for all the contenders out there with the Gangsta Grillz The Funeral Service: There Is No Competition 2. Now that everyone is in the grave “Thriller” style, he’s not just going to leave them buried. He’s going to place tombstones on their lots.
We caught up with Loso at Cemetery Monument Co. in the Bronx (that’s right by St. Raymond’s Cemetery, for those of you familiar with the BX) while he was tombstone shopping. Fab clarified what’s up with his new EP (due September 6).
“I’m just here to make sure they’re buried respectfully,” Fab said. “That’s why we’re here, picking out tombstones for the competition. I felt it was the least I could do for being somewhat responsible for killing the competition. We’re here today, we’re going to bury them respectfully. We’re getting tombstones, some of them are expensive. Some of y’all don’t deserve expensive tombstones. We may cremate you. We’re going to figure out a way to work the competition in. There’s not even enough graveyard, but we’re going to figure this out.
Fab’s EP features three new songs — “Lights Out,” “You Be Killin’ ‘Em” and “Body Count” — and a remix of “Body Bag” with Cam’ron and Vado, which were not on The Funeral Service. Lex Luger and Ryan Leslie are among the producers.
“The EP was something Def Jam came to me about doing. The mixtape had a lot of success in the streets and online. They came to me with the opportunity of putting it out to more of the masses. I guess for certain people who didn’t pick it up, now to add something new to it. Add the videos, add a couple new songs and call it There Is No Competition 2: The Grieving Music [mixtape]. This is just the music to help you get through them tough times. Another sad day for the competition.”
