A few weeks ago, I reported that Brooklyn’s rapper Fabolous will be releasing his new mixtape, entitled There Is No Competition: Death Comes In 3′s, this month. The DJ Drama hosted disc will be dropping on Christmas Day (December 25) and features collaborations with Lloyd Banks, Trey Songz, Ne-Yo, Red Café and Paul Cain. Fab recently spoke to XXL about the tape. Below are some excerpts:
On the official set date for the tape.
“With this mixtape—it’s Christmas time, I wanted to do something for the fans,” he tells XXL. “People are [going to be] home all week, it’s a great time to get in people’s brain all week.”
Fab is certain that the disc will drop on Christmas.
“I hate saying dates [because] certain things happen and you waiting on other people too,” he explains. “Sometimes its out of your hands [but] I’m almost certain we gonna have a Christmas release. I might even push it back [to] later on in the evening just to make sure [everything is] good.”
Fab explains that TINC 3 will feature him “bullying” again.
“ I got some original joints on there but, there’s also more energy with this one,” he says. “I think with the first There Is No Competition, it was more like [me] just rapping and spitting but, this one I wanted a little more energy just because coming off of Soul Tape, that was like my perspective flows, slower beats, and stuff like that so I wanted to give the Ying to the Yang. I wanted to give these niggas some ignorant [shit] but still bars.”
On if TINC3 will be the final chapter in the mixtape trilogy.
“I don’t know if I’m gonna go further because I feel like three is enough for a series.” “I think that’s what happens with movies sometimes with the ‘Jason Part…’ 9s, 10s you [end up] losing a little bit of flavor because you’re just recreating the same thing ten times,” he shares. “So, I think this one might be the final installment of the There Is No Competition series.”
