Brooklyn rapper Fabolous is going to keep fans waiting for his delayed Loso’s Way 2 album but has announced the release date for the forthcoming Soul Tape 3.

Just in time for the holidays, Loso announced a Christmas Day release for the project.

“S O U L T A P E 3 12.25.13 12:25pm #SoulTape3 #MyGiftToYou,” Fab posted onto Instagram with a photo of the project’s cover art December 9. (Fabolous’ Instagram)

Last month, buzz about Loso releasing another addition to his Soul Tape series surfaced.

Fabolous has been pretty quiet this year, only dropping a few songs and appearances. However tonight he went on Instagram to drop a video that all but confirms that there will be a new entry in his “Soul Tape” series of mixtapes coming before this year is out. Rapping over an instrumental for Drake’s “Paris Morton Music 2” Fab gives an enticing preview of what is to come. Could this hold the fans over until the release of his new album? Only time will tell. (Complex)

Initial plans were for Fab’s new album to arrive nationwide in mid-June.

Fabolous stopped by BET’s 106 & Park on Wednesday afternoon to world premiere his video with Chris Brown, “Ready.” Loso explained the video’s concept, and filming it in the Dominican Republic. The Brooklyn spitter used the appearance to announce his Loso’s Way 2: Rise to Power album will hit shelves on June 18. When touching on features, Fab says to expect Chris Brown, Trey Songz, Rick Ross, Future, Young Jeezy, plus a few more surprises. (Miss Info TV)

Last spring, Fab revealed his interest in snagging fellow New York veteran Nas and West Coast rapper Kendrick Lamar for the project.

“Future’s on there. Rick Ross is on there as well, and I’ve been talking with Nas and trying to reach out to Kendrick,” Fab revealed in an interview when asked who would appear on his upcoming Loso’s Way 2 solo album. “[Release date?] Not yet. I’m looking like May-ish. Mid May, end of May.” (“Los Angeles Leakers”)
