Brooklyn rap veteran Fabolous recently talked about his new The Young OG Project album and dished on the importance of pushing quality over sales.
According to Fab, he put more focus into overall content instead of just making radio-friendly hits.
“With this project, I’m not looking at numbers or thinking that you got to have singles. It’s a different time in music. All the conventional ways of doing things are old, and you don’t need to do anything that way again. You need to find new ways to spark people’s interest.” (Billboard)
