Fabolous speaks on, “There Is No Competition 3,” which drops on Christmas Day. He also speaks on filling the shoes as New York’s Rap representative with, “Loso’s Way 2.” Do you see Fabolous taking that role in 2012?

Loso’s been the front representative for Ny music i’d say for the past 2 years atleast. Dude’s just too humble to have said it before but he’s easily the most consistent and relevant Ny rapper.
news flash fab you been the face of new york music cause your commerical and can go street and have a female audience some ny rappers are just street (jadakiss and styles p) some ny rappers are just commerical (jay z nikki minaj ) some ny rappers have just been for ladies (ll cool j) but FAB is all 3 in 1
I came here to say “hell no” to Nigel’s question but the 2 above comments have somewhat convinced me otherwise
Fab shouldve been embraced that role! It did seem like he was shying away from it for a while. He’s truly the last of a dying breed.. No gimmicks. Just rapping
cause when fab do a song with ghostface killah and slaughterhouse its for real hip hop heads
when he does a song with neyo or trey songz club banger or r@b for the ladies
when he does a song with diddy or jay z it going for commerical
so this meaning FAB = KING OF NEW YORK
Don’t get it twisted, Hov is still the King of NY till he falls off or dies….he’s just been it so long people take it for granted. I’d call Fab the “ambassador” though. NY is in desperate need of new blood but politics makes it hard.
I agree with whats been said above. I also feel Fab has embraced that role, it may not be in the most in your face way but none the less he has embraced it. Just look at his last few projects, from From Nothing To Something, TINC, TINC2, Loso’s Way they all were solidifying him as saying “Yo I’m running this now and everybody need to stand down.”
If Fab is the king of New York, then New York rap really is dead. Royce rapped circles and trapezoids around Fab on “Remember The Titans”. [www.youtube.com]
it alot of new york rappers that can rap but havent establish themselves as artist yet royce is just for the streets and real hip hop heads fab is a brand now 1o years plus in the rap game no major co sign and royce is from detriot
and you should specially check out THERE IS NO COMPETITION 3 tomorrow so you can see why NEW YORK rap is in good hands with fab being the general RIP TO THE COMPETITION LOL
