ESPN First Take: Fabolous Speaks on Seattle rapper Macklemore's 4 Grammy Award Wins (Video)
First Take - JAYFORCE.COM

I didn't bother to watch the 56th Annual Grammy Awards last night as I was more inclined to give the NFL's newly revamped Pro Bowl a chance before I eventually fell asleep on it in the 3rd quarter. When I started my day this morning I saw angry people on social media who were upset about Seattle rapper Macklemore's 4 Grammy wins last night. Although I was rooting for artists like Kendrick Lamar  who create music that appeals more to me, I wasn't mad or surprised Macklemore won a few Grammys.  My youngest nieces loved his 'Thrift Store' song early on & I noticed that he appealed to more people independently of what was going on in rap music in general. When I watched ESPN First Take this morning, Brooklyn emcee Fabolous shared a similar sentiment when asked his opinion on Macklemore's Grammy wins. I agree with Macklemore's post Grammy statements in the media though.....Kendrick SHOULD have won the Grammy for 'Best Rap Album', but it is what it is.  More video from Fabolous's appearance on ESPN's First Take after the jump....

Fabolous: The Soul Tape 3 Review | Dead End Hip Hop |

THE SOUL TAPE 3 REVIEW

Fabolous' toolset includes a vast array of punchlines, appealing and charming hooks, and an aptitude for picking just the right drum or snare. And recently, Fab has done his best job at showing you his knack for beat picking on the successful, well acclaimed "Soul Tape" series. The Soul Tape series is a treat for any fan of the genre; fans don't have to pay anything, and the digestibleness of Fabolous coupled with the series' signature fedora hat feel, fan favorite producer style of soul sampling production aims for an easy listen with any rap fan. There is also an underlying continuation within the series: the beats get lavisher, the features get bigger, the freestyles are dialed down, and the venues on the covers (From the Apollo, to the Beacon, to MSG) grow in size and prestige by every step of the series. And so, back by popular demand, Fabolous shimmy's down the chimney this Christmas season, as the Soul Tape series returns with another inclusion, this round upping the ante one more time.

Soul Tape 3 opens up with the intro song "Everything Was The Same", which is a play on the title of Drake's 2013 album "Nothing Was The Same", and a freestyle over the Jordan Evans produced "Paris Morton Music 2". This freestyle track, the only one on Soul Tape 3, contains hindsight only a few rappers as surviving as Fabolous can talk about. Fab is a vet with more than just a few medals in the showroom, but the grandiosity of those achievements have all but lost their luster by now, and particularly so as Fab enchants the situation by laminating a cushy piano track with his grievances and introspects. Fab's lyrical prowess is also as sharp as ever on this song, as he raps "All ya'll see is sunshinin', think I was never shaded/Ya' think these calendar models is all that I ever dated". While Fabolous' fondness of punchlines has often been pointed out as the crux of his music, he is more tasteful this time around as he tones down the acute overtones which often embody the typical crude and lewd "punchline" lyric of today. This song segues into "Sacrifices", a track which arrives as merrily and sprightly as can be, but a track which tackles far more introspective than frolicking subject matters the song's production might suggest. It opens up with the lines: "Seeing your family scrambling, that's sanity damaging/Gotta, make a move can't just stand and be mannequin", an exhibition of Fab's dagger wordplay and rhyme scheming. If any sound embodies the series, "Sacrifices" is it; it's a lively track with a crooning sample that is accompanied by hard hitting drums that seemingly defy the convention of soft bass instruments which often accompanies soul sampling. The song also exhales an air of groundedness in both the boards and the verses, an air, however, that is quickly whisked away by Fabolous on track 3 "Playa". The song, which samples Notorious B.I.G.'s "Playa Hater", has verses that are melodized and hummed, much in the same way Biggie does in the sample track. And from one sampled Brooklyn-MC to to the next, track #5 "The Get Back" contains an eerie, chill arousing version of the piano from Jay-Z's classic "Dead Presidents" beat, over fleeting southern trap high drums and a plethora of blaring, thundering snares. This song also contains Fabolous' formal reply to Kendrick's "Control" verse that was all the rage during the summer months of 2013:

"Just tooting your own horn, do your thing my N-I-G

Whenever you ven aquito that mighty NYC

We gon' check that name you claim, bring your YAWK and I.D

We take it the wrong way, all gold everything"

While it's only a commentary on the backlash Kendrick received for his statements and not a retaliation against the new self-proclaimed "King of NYC", the lyrics provide a type of sage quality, the type you seek from a near middle aged rapper, and a type of conveyance sorely lacking

I'm a huge fan of Fabolous, however this past Soul Tape 2 did not capture the same fury as he did in Soul Tape 1. Hopefully Louso continues this tradition of releasing a mixtape for the streets during this winter season. What do you think of the cover art?
