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.

This looks like a winning team to me. I know how you all eat up the R Les studio videos too (with good reason). If Ryan Leslie wants to double the views he already gets on his studio videos, I recommend putting Keri Hilson in all of them, even if she’s not contributing on the track.

No charge for that marketing tip either, Ryan.

…and he’s got a mixtape coming out, according to the video. Joe’s trying to get Fab to tell people how much doper he is than everyone in New York, and to start some shit, but Fab won’t bite. Smart dude, especially when Joe Budden’s in your face with a camera. They also talk about what they consider to be underground. Apparently Budden thinks he’s underground. That’s a word that means nothing today if you really think about. It’s not the late 90’s anymore.
