Hi everyone! This is my first time doing a blog, and I’m going to tell you all a a little something about my favorite hip hop artist Fabolous. His birth name is John David Jackson he was born on November 18, 1977. John’s thirty-seven years old at this very moment and was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. John’s stage name is Fabolous, which is the name everybody knows him by.
Fabolous is associated with a lot of different people like DJ Clue, DJ Drama, Joe Budden, Lil Wayne, Pusha T, Red Café,Swizz Beatz, and Young Jeezy. Stars with connects like that will most likely be in a label or own theirs. In Fabolous’s case his labels are Street Family, Desert Storm, and Def Jam Ciroc Entertainment. Even before Fabolous became hott, he never planned on becoming a rapper. Fab told everyone “I was just trying to make some money, ya know? I got tired of being broke.”
Fabolous really started pursuing his career while he was still in high school. The first album he came out with was in 2001 and the album’s name was “Ghetto Fabolous”. “Ghetto Fabolous” sold over 140,000 copies the first week, and the album’s first single was “Can’t Deny It.” Fabolous’s other albums were “Street Dreams”, “Real Talk” ,”From Nothin’ to Somethin”, and my all time favorite “Loso’s Way”. Some of these albums sold more than the first one, but I have still enjoyed listening to them. Fabolous is a very successful artist, and I really look up to him. He has a website http://www.myfabolouslife.com go check it out.
