Grammy-nominated rapper Fabolous has announced plans to re-release his recent There Is No Competition 2: Funeral Service mixtape in retail stores this summer.
Breaking the news on his Twitter page, Fab said the retail release will feature new tracks.
"Def Jam decided to put out TiNc2 the Funeral Service mixtape as a EP in August... So im in the studio workin on a few new songs...," he revealed Thursday (July 1).

"Its a hard job killin the competition & keepin them dead.. But somebody gotta do it.. #FuneralFab" (Fabolous' Twitter)
Last March, Fab talked about the original mixtape's constant delays.
"Nah, timing was the hardest part," Fab explained about his delayed release. "You know I have a very crazy schedule, I have a lot of shows -- I wanted to take time out and make time to do this album, to do this mixtape, I keep referring to it as an album because that's what it felt like...I chose the opportunity to work with some of the people I didn't get to work with before like Nicki [Minaj] and Cam. They make good music, I make good music and you put good music and good music together and you make great music. I think they were helpful in making the mixtape as well, it's a great project...I put a lot of hard work into it." (Real Talk NY)

The rapper previously said his mixtape would have dropped in February.
"It was supposed to have came and I gave a date but people have been killing me but I really wanted to make sure I put good material on it and now people started coming. I just got a verse from Nicki Minaj, I got something from Trey Songz, Jadakiss, so I added a couple things and people should just [be patient.] This could possibly have been an album -- but it's over other people's beats, too. Some of it is original joints but some is over, I did 'Say Something,' I did 'All The Way Turnt Up,' I did the Waka Flocka beat, few joints and then a few originals, mixed it up." (Hot 97)
