New York rapper Fabolous has promised a strong return to Twitter beginning tomorrow (March 22) and said he has not "fallen off."
Writing via Twitter, Fab explained his recent absence from updating his followers.
"A girl & her dude pulled up on me earlier & told me "Fab, u fell off on Twitter!" I was enjoyin my twitter break til I got told I "fell off"," he wrote over the weekend. "The words "Fell Off" has caused me to come back.. Thanx#RandomChick..

Last September, Fabolous used his Twitter account to taunt singer T-Pain.

He also caused tension toward 50 Cent when questioning the rapper's This Is 50 Fest concert last October.
"Reading what Fab said about me on Twitter was disappointing," 50 wrote in a This Is 50 posting. "I have extended myself to Fab personally to allow him to expand himself as an international Touring Artist. I thought we were Friends but that's cool. Law #2: Never put too much trust in friends. Learn how to use enemies. Be wary of friends--they will betray you more quickly, for they are easily aroused to envy. They also become spoiled and tyrannical. But hire a former enemy and he will be more loyal than a friend, because he has more to prove. In fact, you have more to fear from friends than from enemies. If you have no enemies, find a way to make them. --50th Law of Power. Am I 50 Cent or Am I Machiavelli? D*mmmm!!! (This Is 50)
Fab later addressed his remarks and the advantages/disadvantages of Twitter.
"The only thing I really don't like about Twitter is a lot of what you say can be taken out of context," Fab said in a statement. "If you say something now, the way the media is, if you include somebody's name it in it becomes a big web and big blog interest...The kind of artist he was when he started he was almost totally against that. He isolated himself and G-Unit, and even attacked other people, and had beefs with other people, mainly other New York rappers. A lot of people feel like he helped crumble New York Rap because he changed people's perspectives, changed people's situations. He was incredibly successful. He had the power of King Kong and they were not as successful and they were kind of at his mercy... "He was able to shift his weight around due to the money he made and the money he was making and I think that he did that. I seen the concert pictures on-line and it looked a little different, a little weird to me. I'm not against 50. I didn't say it in a beef way. Certain people were already throwing up blogs to create rivalries between different people, commenting and it was really taken out of context. That was just a random thought of mine..." (Hip Hop DX)
