Fabolous Releasing S.O.U.L. Mixtape Next Month

Platinum selling/BET Award winning rapper Fabolous will be dropping his new mixtape Soul in February. The mixtape will be done over all sampled soul beats; without A DJ. Below is how XXL is reporting the story.

According to Fab, he’s already recorded most of the material for the untitled tape and he’s even shot a video for one of the tracks. Emphasizing a focus on soul beats, Fab hit up his Twitter followers for some title suggestions.

I’m almost done with it,” he told XXL. “I did the poll [on Twitter] to get people interactive with it and see what names they would come up with. I’m doing it over all old soul sampled beats, so I wanted to keep the world ‘soul’ within the title. A lot of people picked ‘Soul Survivor’ or really attached it to There Is No Competition because they are already familiar with that and that’s one of the mixtape monikers for me. But I wanted to keep it separate from There Is No Competition, even though that name is winning [in the poll]. I might actually go with the third option which is ‘The S.O.U.L. Tape.’ The first one that was winning was ‘Rest The Souls of the Competition.’ That’s kinda like playing into There Is No Competition 2 and the next one is ‘TINC 2.5: Soul Survivor.’ But I’m trying to steer away from that because that’s its own brand. I want to steer away from both of those and just call it ‘The S.O.U.L. Tape.”

Since the tape is seperate from his TINC series, Fab isn’t going to recruit DJ Drama to take on hosting duties. In fact, he may not have a DJ involved with the tape at all. “For a while there hasn’t been a tape without a DJ since like maybe Drake’s tape or Lil Wayne’s tape,” he said. “Everybody usually has a DJ attached to it which is dope, I think it’s a dope thing for both the DJ and the artist. They usually blend the tapes well and it good for the music, but I think I want to do it without— just music. Its kinda one of those tapes that I want people to just sit through and listen and really hear the lyrics. DJs bring it back sometimes or they’re talking on top of it.”

As of press, the mixtape does not have a set released date but will be dropping the first or second week in February.

Dope Pic Of The Day: Meek Millz In His Drop Top

Many times I’ve been in the clubs in Philly and the crowd goes crazy when the DJ play that Meek Milly s**t. Meek is living at the speed of life as he drive through Miami in his drop top. I respect what Meek is doing for Philadelphia Hip-Hop. He’s bringing DOPE music back to the City of Brotherly Love. I remember about 5 years ago when Meek and I both were teenagers; I was sitting in my Camden, New Jersey home watching Meek rap on DVD’s now he’s one of the hottest rising rappers. Meek is doing a great job at branding himself. As I previously reported, Meek Millz is in the process or already signed to Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group. Much success Meek in all of your future endeavors.
