Grammy-nominated rapper Fabolous has narrowed down a release for his upcoming Loso's Way 2 album.
According to Fab, he is anticipating a November release date for his Loso's Way follow-up.
"I'm trying to get it out there for Thanksgiving," Fab revealed in an interview with radio host Tim Westwood. "I think Thanksgiving will be a great time. I'm just grabbing up all the beats. Once I get all the bones of it, I can just lay the skin right on top of it. I kinda got where the concept of where I want to go with it but I just got to find the music to pull it all together. I've got about 12 beats right now, looking for maybe about four more. And I worked with more young, hungry producers this time. Last time I had a lot of big features and producers but this time I wanted to shake the chemistry up a little bit..." (Tim Westwood TV)
Last December, Fab initially said the project could drop sometime in the second quarter.
"I'm looking to come next summer," Fab said of the album's release date. "I like summer releases. It's good timing. People are out, a lot of people need good music to ride to. I'm looking towards June or July again and come with Loso's Way 2." As of now, the roll-out for the original Loso's Way is still underway. Fab wants to release viral visuals for "Lullaby," "Last Time" and "Makin' Love," while a clip "I'mma Do It" hit the 'net a few weeks ago. (MTV)
