Fabolous has shined some more light on his upcoming reality show and said an emphasis would be made on centering into life with his son.
While not offering a premiere date, Fab said the show would be a fatherhood-based program.
"I'm working on this reality show, with me and my son," Fab confirmed in an interview with interviewer Nesha. "It's gonna be like, about young fatherhood where, well, not too young, but in the same token as being my first child and he's so young and me still being relevant in hip-hop. You know, having to balance my career being a father at the same time. And then me actually not knowing much about parenting. The struggling in there should be fun, having some funny points, I have some drama, I have a lot of ups and downs, it should be a good reality show. It's not crazy, I'm not searching for love on that Ray J sh*t." (Society & Style)
The rapper recently said he wanted to make sure there was no romantic theme attached to his show.
"Been shooting 4 a reality show 4 the last 2 days... I know..But no Ray J, Flavor Flav 4 love sh*t," he wrote Monday (September 28) afternoon. "Won't b nicknaming no chicks! I'm a new father, my son is 20 months and I'm still learning this father gig as I go.. So I'm tryin 2 balance that and being 'Fabolous'.. The show is based on da crazy, spontaneous, busy, traveling life of a entertainer & da loving, complicated, genuine journey of a new father. And somehow since the producers & backers of the show found out I'm a trending topic startin lunatic on twitter.. Twitter & my twiggas r in!" (Fabolous' Twitter)
Fellow Brooklyn, New York-based emcee Maino has also spoke about a possible reality show he has under wraps.
"It's 90 percent solidified," he said in an interview with radio personality Angela Yee. "This is why I haven't really spoke on it because it's not etched in stone yet. But there's something reality-based and around MTV 'ish. It's about a white dude, he doesn't come from my culture. He doesn't understand the rap game, he doesn't understand what it means to be a rapper everyday. He lives with me and tries to like, understand what goes on in our world...Nothing I do is scripted. So if you see smack somebody then maybe it's really going down." (Shade 45 Lip Service)
While details are still sketchy, Ryan Leslie recently broke news about forming a super group with Fab and Ne-Yo.
"We're talking about a triple-team collaboration that's really gonna hurt the game," he revealed. "Your boy Fab, the boy Ne-Yo and yours truly on the board. It's really gonna put a hurting on everybody...The table is open -- if you're bringing something to the table, you can break bread. It's about conceptualizing. It's not gonna be a project that's thrown together. It's gonna be a real roundtable, and we're gonna talk about really putting something in the atmosphere that contributes something that's never been done before." (MTV)
