Grammy-nominated rapper Fabolous has provided fans with an update on his upcoming Loso's Way 2 LP, and why he is breaking the deadline rule for the sake of quality music.
Although the project has been talked about over the past year, Fab said the album currently remains in its development phase.
"The album, we just started on that. I really just got a lot of beats on that, picking beats out or whatever. Then I lock in and attack the beats, like a monster in a cave. [Laughs] I drag the beats back to my cave. [Deadline?] Not really. I usually have deadlines but I don't. They tell you what time you need to do something, and it's like, 'Okay, I work toward that time, but if it's not ready, it's not ready.' But I'm definitely not the type that will just let something not come out. There's a couple [of] albums right now that people have been talking about for a year..." (XXL Mag)
In May 2010, Fab said he hoped to put the project out by the fall.
"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)
Around December 2009, 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)
In August 2009, Fab's Loso's Way debuted atop the sales chart.
Fabolous' highly-anticipated Loso's Way album landed on top of all releases this week securing No. 1. According to Nielsen SoundScan, F-a-b-o's fifth solo project was able to scoop up 99,000 sold discs after seven days in stores making it the number one album in the country. (SOHH Sales Wrap)
