Fab clocked in at #8 on MTV’s Hottest MC’s in the Game list.

#8- Fabolous is to rap as Penn State is to College Football

How is that you ask? Well, they both possess intangibles that are required for success. Fab can rap. His flow and mic presence are there and it’s hard to dispute. Penn State will always be good defensively. If you’re a linebacker that went to Penn State, you wear that as a badge of honor. Hell, you’re going to be drafted in the first round.

So what’s the problem? You can win with that, right? A good flow makes a good track, and defense wins championships.

Not so fast.

Penn State’s last national title was in 1986. Even though they have largely been ranked in the top 10 for the better part of two decades, they don’t have much to show for it.

Fab’s been in this game for a while. He’s remarked that he’s been spittin’ full time since the 90’s and is a contemporary of Nas and Jay-Z. However, he’s not mentioned with them. We know he can rap with the best of them, but his mainstream success has largely been determined by his singles. His LPs are always points of contention for critics. Case in point: Loso’s Way.

Keys for the Game: Deliver in the big game and you’ll be in the national championship.
