Brooklyn rapper Fabolous recently came forward to kill rumors and gossip claiming his mother has passed away.
Fab hopped on Twitter heading into the weekend to nix the hoax death reports.
“Fyi my MOM did not die.. Keep seeing tweets sayin RIP to my mom.. Think some ppl misunderstood my instagram pic’s caption…,” he tweeted August 3rd.
“Sorry for Media Takeout’s false story.. My MOM is ALIVE.. I appreciate the love but my MOM did not die!!” (Fabolous’ Twitter)
The death hype developed after Fab tweeted a photo of his mother a few days ago.
Fab took to Twitter to dispel the cruel report that he may have inadvertently started. That caption read, “She held on as long as she could … my mom,” and features this picture of Fab as kid being held by his mother. We see how MTO could have come to the conclusion that the rapper’s mother had passed, but this is why you always fact check, especially before publishing stories such as this. (RumorFix)
With family in place, the rapper is currently gearing up for his next solo album, Loso’s Way 2.
“I gave that music just to keep the people fed. At some point they get starved, like, we need some music, so I gave them the [There Is No Competition 3], and since then I’ve been working on the album,” Fab said in an interview. “The whole process in between that, I’ve just been working on the album and getting it ready. The release should be top of fall. … This one is really growth and evolution. I think people know what I do — they know I’ve been in the game for a minute, but you gotta continuously show that growth and show that you’re bringing something. It’s the same thing, it’s the same steps over and over again, but you gotta make it look new.” (MTV)
Earlier this year, Loso said he still had to find the right production for his LP.
Fabolous recently told VIBE, Loso’s Way 2, could be ready by as early as this spring/early summer. In an exclusive interview in New York City, Loso reveleaed he’s been laying the groundwork for the project. “Loso’s Way 2 is slated for 2012 release and looking spring/early summer. This mixtape is going to coast us into that and bring some energy to this time as well,” Fab told VIBE. “I’m very premature with the album as of yet, as of now, just grabbing up the beats and putting some ideas down.” Currently, the Brooklyn rapper is looking for the right production to fit his sequel. “I went in with Hit-Boy. I went in with No I.D. I went in with Pharrell. I went in with a lot of guys that didn’t have to have that big name either. It’s just about the energy. I love the new young guys’ energy,” explained Fabolous. (VIBE)
