Fabolous Gets All Marty McFly For His New Video
As a young OG, it's Fabolous’ sworn duty to blend the old with the new, and in the video for "You Made Me," from his recently released The Young OG Project, Loso takes his mission seriously.
The video, which premiered on MTV Jams and Fabolous.MTV.com on Tuesday (Apr. 21), borrows it's theme from the classic "Back to the Future" film trilogy. Fab starts off in a DeLorean DMC-12, dressed as Marty McFly, and travels back to 1995 to revisit an old cheating girlfriend.
"Last time I trust ya boy, he betrayed me/ Last time I trust a chick, she played me/ Pardon me if I been on one lately, but this is how you made me," he raps over the Chase N. Cashe-produced track.
In another scene, a 1997 version of Loso (dressed in vintage Polo gear) passes his demo tape and spits his very first DJ Clue freestyle to a music executive who blows him off. Years later, a more famous Fab meets the exec again and ends up signing a autograph for his daughter, leaving her with a very inspirational message: "Believe in yourself."
Since dropping Young OG on Christmas, Fab has been taking frequent trips down memory lane. In December, he ran through his favorite things from the 1990s with MTV News.
Then, more recently, he sat with us and recalled the DJ Clue freestyle that made him famous.
And for the past six weeks, the Brooklyn MC has been dropping freestyles over classic '90s rap instrumentals. For his latest, he updated Diddy's "Been Around the World" remix beat.
