Sampling Hov's Black Album cut as his template, Loso reflects on conversations he shared with the Lakers legend throughout his career. "I talked with him twice at the games," he rhymes. "Once at the 'Trade It All' video, I'd say we had a nice lil' exchange of words / He said, 'You gotta come and spice up the game' / Say word? / Kobe giving me advice is insane, absurd." (Rap-Up)

Today it was revealed in the Baltimore Sun that Swizz Beatz will be executive producing Tate's debut album.
Although no release date has been scheduled, plans are to release the project in September this year.
"Man, listen. Swizz was like, "Man, I'ma let you know, I get a million artists come across me every day, and there ain't nothing special about them. There's something about you. You it! You got 'it!' It is what it is." I was like, "Man, whatever 'it' is, I'm glad I got it, because this is crazy." We gonna link up and we gonna make magic."
In addition to work with Swizz, Tate Kobang has been working with Nelly, Fabolous and Jadakiss.
Tate Kobang has been doing his best to give back to his community as the anniversary of the Freddie Gray's death approaches.
"I'm also doing a shoe drive. I do a shoe drive every year on my mother's birthday. That's April 19 in Baltimore, which is also the [anniversary] of the Freddie Gray [death], so we're going to do it right on North Avenue. We're going to bring live music, cook out. We're just going to have fun in the city."

There has been rumors going around about New York rappers Fabolous and Jadakiss releasing a collaborative project. After teasing fans with a picture of the two together a couple of days ago, the two emcees have now released a single to show that they're serious. The new track is a freestyle over Future's track "Wicked," showcasing Fabolous' rhymes in auto tune and Jadakiss spitting as well.
There has yet to be an official release date for "Freddy vs Jason" though
(AllHipHop News) Fresh off the stage from his performance in Tampa Bay at a Spring Break concert called Wild Splash 2016, Fabolous took the time to speak with the famed Bootleg Kev for a round of Q&A.
While Fab spoke about his new album with Jadakiss (Freddy vs Jason) that will be available on both iTunes and Tidal, Fab took the time to weigh in on the Troy Ave/Joey Bada$$ beef that's been getting headlines over the past few weeks.
According to Fab, when Fabolous first met Troy it was through the streets and he didn't even know Troy rapped. Since then the two have collaborated on a host of records including the fan favorite, "Only Life I Know." (See Below)
"I worked with Troy Ave because I met him really in the streets and we built our relationship from there, and then it came out. Actually when I met him, I didn't even know he rapped," Fabolous explained.
"So I just met him and we ended up clicking and then he came out of nowhere talking about he rapped and he had songs and stuff, so I tried to help him out as much as I could."
When asked specifically about the Capital Steez line by Troy Ave, Fabolous said, "I don't know all the specifics in it," but weighed in further on Rap beef in 2016.
"I don't know all the specifics in it, I don't know all that happened. I heard Troy respond, and then I heard that one of the guys came at Troy about his album sales or something like that. So I don't really know everything that happened really in it, and I know people are going crazy about something that Troy said, but I don't really know all the info," Fab said of the beef.
"It's a competitive sport so when people throw shots at you, you know, you gotta expect a retaliation too or a reply," Fab said.
From there Kev and Fab kept it moving but whether you think Fab sides with Troy from their relationship in the streets, or whether Fab is neutral, Fab let it be known that rap is a sport and you better be ready.
Is Fab suggesting that anything is fair game? Let us know your thoughts below!
Funeral Fabolous stopped by Florida radio station 94.1 to chop it up with Bootleg Kev about a number of topics. He confirmed that there will be a joint album or mixtape with Jadakiss, weighs in of the Troy Ave and Joey Bada$$ beef, his mixtape catalog, his jersey collection and forthcoming projects.
(AllHipHop News) Long before Kendrick Lamar's single "Alright" became both a hit song a chant used against social injustice and racist politics in national news, it was originally a song made by another rapper.
In early 2014, Pharrell made an appearance at a Fool's Gold Party following the Grammys, and ended up previewing a couple of songs off of his iPod for a packed audience. The first song on the video is "Alright", but it's not Kendrick over the beat. Although the clip was brief, but there's a good chance that the rapper over it was either Fabolous or (possibly) Pusha T.
