Fabolous on Using Hustling Tactics in Music & Watching Drake’s Career Growth

 

COMPLEX HUSTLE WITH LOSO

A few days ago, at Howard Homecoming, Fabolous spoke to Complex Magazine about how he became one of the few rappers to transition and have a career over 10-years.

In the clip, above, Loso spoke on how he’s used his street hustling tactics in the entertainment business – citing how he’s monitored older OGs in his time during his teens on the corners and legends in the music game in his twenties to be where he’s at today.

Watch more from the video, where the Young OG speaks on watching Drake’s career growth from well-over 10 years ago and how he’s become one of the biggest names in the world.

LABEL: RCA RECORDS
ITUNES: HTTPS://ITUN.ES/COZYTAPESVOL1

Although we’ve seen albums from Rocky and Ferg recently, the A$AP Mob has gone four years without a project. Coincidentally, tonight marks the anniversary since their last mixtape dropped in 2012, Lords Never Worry, as the Harlem collective is back with Cozy Tapes Vol. 1: Friends.

A$AP Yams originally planned to release it last year, but due to his unfortunate death in early 2015, the mixtape became a posthumous project which the MOB took time to properly honor him.

The project, highlighted by their Juicy J assisted hit-single, “Yamborghini High,” includes members Rocky, Ferg, Twelvyy, Ant, Nast, Yung Lord and the newest addition, Playboi Carti. Features come from Wiz Khalifa, Tyler, The Creator, Offset, Onyx, Skepta, Lil Uzi Vert, BJ the Chicago Kid, Lil Yachty, MadeinTYO, Yung Gleesh, Key! and Buddy.
