Fabolous Releasing New Mixtape

Coming off the success of last year’s mixtape, There Is No Competition 2, Fabolous told XXL that next month, he will be releasing The S.O.U.L. Tape. Loso says he will be rapping over soul sampled beats with no DJ drops. Niceee.

“I’m almost done with it. I did the poll [on Twitter] to get people interactive with it and see what names they would come up with. I’m doing it over all old soul sampled beats, so I wanted to keep the world ‘soul’ within the title. A lot of people picked ‘Soul Survivor’ or really attached it to There Is No Competition because they are already familiar with that and that’s one of the mixtape monikers for me. But I wanted to keep it separate from There Is No Competition, even though that name is winning [in the poll]. I might actually go with the third option which is ‘The S.O.U.L. Tape.’ The first one that was winning was ‘Rest The Souls of the Competition.’ That’s kinda like playing into There Is No Competition 2 and the next one is ‘TINC 2.5: Soul Survivor.’ But I’m trying to steer away from that because that’s its own brand. I want to steer away from both of those and just call it ‘The S.O.U.L. Tape.’”

“For a while there hasn’t been a tape without a DJ since like maybe Drake’s tape or Lil Wayne’s tape. Everybody usually has a DJ attached to it which is dope, I think it’s a dope thing for both the DJ and the artist. They usually blend the tapes well and it good for the music, but I think I want to do it without— just music. Its kinda one of those tapes that I want people to just sit through and listen and really hear the lyrics. DJs bring it back sometimes or they’re talking on top of it.”

  • ddave

    I’m sort of looking forward to this. I’m not even a Fab fan. This just means Budden is gonna hear the beat, and kill it a week or 2 after the tape drops.

  • Dell

    Fab is my dude but how he gone say “For a while there hasn’t been a tape without a DJ since like maybe Drake’s tape or Lil Wayne’s tape”? ummm J.Cole’s Warm Up and Friday Night Lights were practically albums. Cole still aint gettin no credit smh

    LMFAO THERE’S A DIFFERENCE WAYNE AND DRAKE COULD AFFORD DJ’S BUT THEY JUST DIDN’T WANT THEM ON IT

    J.COLE CAN’T AFFORD A DJ FOR HIS MIXTAPE SO HE HAD NO CHOICE!

  • Black Shady

    @ZoomZoom ; how Cole cant afford a DJ? he’s fucking signed to the biggest rapper out there (besides Em). You’re just a hater

    Why do established artist like Fab put DJs on there mixtapes anyways? Am I the only person that thinks it’s unnecessary?
