New York rap veteran Fabolous has gone back down memory lane. Days after celebrating the 15th anniversary of his Ghetto Fabolous album Loso revealed he left his first deal with Interscope Records.

Fab went to Instagram last night (September 13) and said he put his career on the line to give his loyalty to longtime mentor DJ Clue in the early 2000’s.


Earlier this week, Fab reflected on his 2001 debut, Ghetto Fabolous.

My baby.. 15 years ago today my 1st album released on Sept. 11th 2001.. A 23 yr old kid from Breevoort Projects in the Bed Stuy section in Brooklyn, NY got a chance… I didn't know much about making a album but I did know I had a opportunity to change me, my family & friends lives. Ghetto Fabolous sold over a million records & was my 1st Platinum album but what made it special to me was the grind, the industry innocence, the learning process, & the fans who came along on the journey with me from the Clue mixtapes to Ghetto Fabolous. Thank You to @djclue, @duroceo, Skane & Desert Storm. Thank You to Sylvia Rhone & Elektra Records. Thank You to all the Producers & Features. & most important Thank You to all the fans who was down & stayed down!! #Happy15thAnniversary #GhettoFabolousTurns15 #GhettoFabolous
