Brooklyn rap veteran Fabolous is giving himself a heavy load as fans anxiously await his delayed Loso’s Way 2 solo album by announcing a new project called Young O.G.
While details are still scarce, Loso revelaed his latest project’s creation in an interview this week.
“This is kind of very early,” he says in an interview with Complex’s Quickstrike when host DJ Clark Kent reveals the project title. “I haven’t even told anybody about that yet.” Fabolous released a video for “Young O.G.” in March 2014. (HHDX)
A few months ago, Fab hinted at a potential summer release for Loso’s Way 2.
“”Record labels have its processes and stuff so you gotta work with that,” Fab said. “I’m looking towards like a summer release. It’s good — I think people have been waiting but I feel like even I can’t give them something that I don’t feel is right so I always make sure that I’m completely a hundred percent comfortable with the product that I’m putting out before I do. I think this summer will be that time.” (Real Talk NY)
Last year, Fab revealed he would have R&B hitmaker Ryan Leslie and star producer Pharrell Williams contribute to the LP.
“Yeah man, I am tightening it up. I was almost at a final pivotal point of the project in trying to wrap it up, but I bumped into my guy Ryan Leslie, who wasn’t on the project yet, so now we getting in the studio and coming with some stuff. I think everybody knows the chemistry that we have, and the kind of music he makes with that organic New York feel to it, so I really wanted him to be a part of this project. Also Pharrell, he’s got a new hunger again for hip-hop, so he came to me and said ‘yo we gotta get in again,’ so am gonna go check him out as well, and lock it down, and get this project out to the fans.” (The Source)
While Fab would not reveal the exact reason, he did admit some type of technicalities forced him to delay the project back last May.
Previously due June 18, Loso’s Way 2 will now arrive in late July (either the 23rd or 30th). “We actually pushed back a little bit. We needed to handle some technicalities.” Twelve years after releasing his debut, Fab feels confident about his status in the game. “I’m cool, I’m blessed, and God has blessed me to be here,” he said. “This is a young man’s game, so it’s a blessing just to be here still now.” He plans to do some acting, but music remains his focus. “I definitely want to get more present in the game.” (Rap-Up)
