Mistah F.A.B. Exclusives

Mistah F.A.B. was on KMEL last night and previewed two new tracks, which I just so happened to record. They're off his upcoming album Yellow Bus Ryda which is set to drop "Novemberish". Apparently FAB is also at work on another album coming out after that, called The Furley Ghost. When asked if he would do any posthumous tracks with Mac Dre, FAB said he doesn't want to do "one of those Biggie put-together tracks" and that he "don't wanna keep capitalizin off [Mac Dre], thats for real." He also dropped some info about upcoming DVDs including Treal T.V. 2 which is gonna drop Nov. 22nd, and The Freestyle King DVD which features Fabby battling a bunch of others (most notably the rap-battle where he KO'd Jin at Hot Import Nights-- "in front of his people, literally" ... ). That drops sometime next month. Heres the new tracks:

Mistah F.A.B. - Metros and Chirpers
Produced by Droop-E, who's whistle seems fitting on a song about cell phones. The lyrics are straight silly, making fun of bad reception, phones falling out your pocket whenever you stand up, cracked screens, taking calls after 9, etcetera. Its a fast paced song, with a catchy hook.

Mistah F.A.B. - The Furley Ghost
Produced by Trackademics, who did a buncha tracks on FAB's Son of a Pimp album. "Let Dre get in your soul and lose control", The Furley Ghost is another take on the thizz dance, but this track opens it up so that anyone, even straight-edge cats, can get down because now its not about being Eeed out your skull, its about "dancing with your spirit". Which is really what the thizz dance was always about anyway, but people just assosciated it strictly with E because of the word "thizz". The beat slaps in a slow-motion-gangsta-stoner kinda way.

On the new Federation track-- I'll put it up later tonight, along with another older Federation track that never actually ended up appearing on any albums.

Nice post man. Do you by any chance have any of the songs off that Trackademics mixtape? I'd really like to hear his Ghostface remix...

haha, straight edge!

Finally, some love for the straight-edgers. Yeah, as you can imagine, as a straight-edger, there ain't a lot I can relate to when, say, I'm listening to a Team album and hearing a "purp" reference every fifth line, haha. I guess I can't actually relate to most of the New Bay subject material, but hey, these dudes have more character than the majority of the other rappers out there today, and in my opinion is the most exciting thing going on in rap right now ...

I like F.A.B. This dude is a fun emcee; I like just hearing what he's gonna say next. And that album title is fantastic ...

ps: You're killing me with that Federation track! haha, peace.

mornview, you'll never walk alone. both FAB and EA-Ski are (nearly) straight-edge, and i'm sure a few of the other rappers i've been posting up are as well. as for those federation tracks? haha man, sorry bout pushin that back, they'll be up later tonight, along with some new hoodstars tracks. dont sleep!

HAHA mornview, yeah i feel ya man. i'm pretty straight-edge myself. and along with jayo's comments bout FAB & E-A-Ski being straight-edge.. the FRONTLINE are also. i was surprised at first and gave them much more respect when i read that
in the SF Guardian with E-A-Ski complimenting on how good and clean the two fellas were. can't wait for new frontline tracks!!!

Wow, all those dudes are straight edge?! Never would've guessed it, at least, just from listening to their lyrics. But the more I think about it, the more I guess I can see it, at least for EA-Ski, from a producer's perspective. I suck enough at making beats in a solid state of mind, I don't see how they could do that stuff messed up ... and there was that verse on "My Bad" about not coming to the studio fucked up.

And I'm always anxious for some new Frontline stuff ... "Workout" was probably the song that got me into this whole New Bay stuff. Now, I realize, if I had any crediblity before, it's all gone now since that means, yes, I got into this pretty much the same time as all the bandwagon dudes, haha.
