I was definitely looking forward to this release from Fab but I gotta say that I was a little let down upon hearing it. Fab’s lyrics are definitely on point. I can’t really fault him ever for that. All you have to do is look at his Freestyle Friday series and all of his early albums and Soul Tape mixtape series. It’s hard to mess with the dude lyrically. He definitely brings it on this release but maybe not as hard as he could have. Overall, decent attempt though. The beats are average. I like some of the interesting choices he decided to flip for beats. My ears definitely perked up when I heard “I’m Goin Down” which samples Biggie’s “The What.” The other joint that was definitely good to hear was “For The Family” which samples Jay-Z’s “4 Da Fam.” Dave East does a great job on that one. Overall as a release, I think this is one of those instances where it looks better on paper than it does in execution. I’m definitely not mad at this release though. I think Fab could just focus a little bit better and put out a real classic.
OVERALL RATING: 3 out of 5 Cheesesteaks
