Fab recently revealed producers he's worked with and the main concept behind the album.
"I went down to Atlanta and got with a couple people," he said. "I went with Jermaine Dupri. I got with [DJ] Toomp. Jim Johnson...It's sorta a concept album. What I themed it behind was Carlito's Way because I liked the movie. It was a classic movie. What I wanted to do with that movie is take principles from that movie [like] how Carlito was a street dude coming outta jail and trying to do something better. (Real Talk NY)
The upcoming LP will follow-up 2007's gold-selling From Nothin' to Somethin'.
Def Jam -- which signed Fabolous after sending Musiq to Atlantic in a unique trade situation -- released From Somethin' to Nothin' (2007). The album debuted at number one on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart (number two overall) and spawned a series of singles, including the Top Ten hit "Make Me Better" featuring Ne-Yo.
