This summer Fabolous announced that he’d be switching gears from Loso’s Way 2 to focus on The Young OG Project – and that’s coming sooner than you think. Fab confirmed to MTV News that the album will arrive on Christmas Day, lead by a single called “Lituation.”
The Brooklyn rapper was just being thoughtful, by giving the adults out there something to unwrap digitally on December 25, when the album hits iTunes.
And if you’re feeling a bit nostalgic, this one is definitely for you, since it will be “very '90s-inspired and '90s themed.”
“It was a golden era in hip-hop to me,” Fab said of rolling with ‘90s theme. “It was where I fell in love with hip-hop and really admired everything that was going on within the culture.”
In addition to telling great stories, he adds that the record is about having a lot of fun. He’ll be flipping some classic 90s beats, creating new ones that capture the vibe of that era and even throwing in a few lines that will take you back.
“I was introduced to hip-hop in the '80s but the '90s is when it flourished and you saw different people, different styles and different regions emerge – it was a very diverse and versatile time and that’s another reason why it sticks to me."
We’ll get a taste of the album with the upcoming street leak called “Lituation” – and if you haven’t heard the term before, here’s your intro course.
“This is a word that I've been hearing floating around and I thought, why not make a song out of it?’ It’s really about a situation that can get lit."
"You can come into a situation and it can be [calm] and you can turn it up and get it a little lit. It’s a very aggressive New York street record and I wanted to start with that just to get the feel, and get you there first, [then] the rest of the album will take you different places.”
