how did fab sell out?



yall n*ggas hear S.O.U.L. Tape??
thats a mixtape fam

where talking bout rappers that completely switch up they whole style and persona for their album to fit the many niche's of today's musical appeal to sell more records.

not sure though if fabulous fits that "sold out" description either though.

I can't compare any other Nelly album to Country Grammar...that has old school classic all over it IMO...

And yeah sure rappers sell out but they do it to put food on the tableif they don't make the kind of music that gets radio play then they don't eat. That's the truth

I also don't think Kanye sold out...I still think he's makes great music when he first started rapping. His old stuff catches my attention A LOT though.
I still aint heard the Country Grammar album in full

yeah it's kinda hard to call a guy a sellout when on one of his very 1st records he said " in my lifetime i need a whole lotta cash" he came he saw he conquered

Fab's albums have been more Southern influenced the past few years, that's why I chose him.

Here's an example:

I wanted to bring this up because Fab did female love songs before Breathe so I didn't know how it would make sense, but even so joints like Diamonds & Baby Dont Go are :jacmonson: worthy


It's amazing how a rapper makes love ballads (Can't Let You Go, So Into You, Trade It All, Pt. 2) then makes a classic hip-hop song. I mean not just on some hood or summer anthem but a real hip-hop all time classic song & says ehh fu*k it lemme make some more female songs. It's a shame & so sad. I still cant believe he made Breathe. I know all the words to that sh*t, line for line
