            (June 2, 2009 – New York, NY) After nearly one full decade
at the absolute pinnacle of the rap game, Desert Storm/Def Jam artist
Fabolous will deliver the most personal, confessional album of his
career when LOSO’S WAY arrives in the physical and digital marketplace
on June 30th.  The new album provides an intimate glimpse into the rise
of the Brooklyn-born rapper, one of today’s most important and
controversial players, exploring the perils that come with managing the
transition from a street life to one of legitimacy.
 
            Underscoring the autobiographical portrait of LOSO’S WAY is
Fab’s first long-form video project, a 30-minute film to be released in
conjunction with the album. Several trailers from the film have been
released, creating a huge buzz for the project online. Known for
keeping his personal life separate from his rap career, Fab was
inspired by Carlito’s Way (Al Pacino), as he told SOHH.com recently: “I
think we had some similarities. Carlito was a street dude trying to
make the transition from the streets to something better. That’s where
I felt I was at….transitioning from the streets to a hip-hop
artist.” 
 
            In advance of LOSO’S WAY, two singles are building
simultaneously at radio: “Throw It In The Bag” featuring fellow Def Jam
artist The-Dream (produced by Tricky Stewart) was #1 Most-Added at
Rhythm formats; and “It’s My Time” featuring brand new Def Jam artist
Jeremih (produced by the Runners) is currently exploding at the Urban
format. Videos for both singles premiered across multiple MTV channels
last week. Fabolous will be performing with Ne-Yo at the BET Awards in
Los Angeles on June 28th.

            LOSO’S WAY is the long-awaited follow-up to From Nothing To
Something, Fab’s RIAA gold Def Jam debut album (released June 2007),
his first album in nearly three years at the time of its release.  From
Nothin To Somethin gave Fabolous the first #1 debuts of his career on
Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and Top Rap Albums charts, on
the strength of two advance singles: “Diamonds” featuring Def Jam
artist Young Jeezy (produced by Steve Morales); and the RIAA platinum
#1 rap/R&B/pop crossover smash “Make Me Better” featuring Def Jam
artist Ne-Yo (produced by Timbaland), which made history when it took
over the #1 Urban spot from fellow Def Jam artist Rihanna’s “Umbrella”
back in 2007.
 
            Background: Starting in 2001, Bed-Stuy’s Fabolous (John
Jackson) was featured on several singles and album tracks, most notably
Lil’ Mo’s Top 10 crossover hit “Superwoman.”  Fab’s singles chart debut
happened that summer with his career-defining “Can’t Deny It,”
featur–ing Nate Dogg, on Desert Storm (via Elektra’s East-West
division).  It was followed by the second solid pop/R&B/rap
crossover “Young’n (Holla Back),” both from the nearly self-titled
debut album Ghetto Fabolous (one of the fateful albums to be released
Sept. 11, 2001), which reached #2 R&B and #4 pop, and was certified
RIAA platinum.
 
            In early-2002, the Barbershop movie soundtrack album spun
off a new Top 20 hit by Fabolous, “Trade It All” (featuring P. Diddy
and Jagged Edge).  The track was later added as a bonus track on Street
Dreams, Fab’s second Desert Storm album, released March 2003.  The
platinum album also contained the massive Top 5 hits “Can’t Let You Go”
(featuring Lil’ Mo and Desert Storm’s Mike Shorey) and “Into You”
(featuring Tamia).  The subsequent mixtape released in November, More
Street Dreams Pt. 2, climbed to Top 10 R&B and Top 30 pop.
 
            Fab’s final entry for the label was his third album, Real
Talk (November 2004).  The RIAA gold album rose to #2 on the R&B
and rap charts, and #6 on the pop side in the wake of its breakout
first single, “Breathe,” which crossed from #2 rap and #4 R&B to
Top 10 pop. After more than two and a half years, Fab returned with
From Nothin To Somethin, igniting the next phase of his career at Def
Jam Recordings.
