LeBron James Is Hyping Fabolous' New Album The Young OG Project On Instagram

Alley-oop!

Good word of mouth makes all the difference for newly released albums.

Fabolous has already been getting rave reviews for his latest LP, The Young OG Project, but on Thursday (January 8), he got an endorsement from the King himself, LeBron James.

The Cleveland Cavaliers star, a well-known fan of hip-hop and close friend to Jay Z, took to Instagram to praise the album and, according to the picture, he was just beginning to listen to track No. 9, “Gone For The Winter.”

“@myfabolouslife went in on this project! "I started cheesing after I turned my craft into cheddar!" Crazy bar!! Congrats homie,” he wrote.

Having your album knighted by the King?

Sounds like the perfect "Lituation" to us!
