Maybe it's his sly, laid back style or maybe it's his "Hollywood-ready good looks" (Rolling Stone), but who knew that when John Jackson chose to call himself "Fabolous," the name would define his career? Real Talk is Fab's third studio album featuring such notables as Sean Paul, Lil' Mo and T.I. Hit makers like Just Blaze, Scott Storch and the Neptunes contribute to this amazing sounding collection of joints. On this latest set he continues to walk the line between massive mainstream hits and satisfying the streets simultaneously. Real Talk promises to deliver. If you speak about it, be about it. REAL TALK.

Muze PNote On Fabolous's third studio record, REAL TALK, he claims that there is much more to him than his string of radio-friendly singles might indicate. That's not to say that the New York City rapper doesn't serve up simple, ready-for-radio moments in abundance, but even the first single, "Breathe," with its Supertramp sample and unusual path to a stunning hook, reveals an artist with much more depth.
Muze PNote "Don't Stop Won't Stop," which follows the striking intro, sports a sinister, Geto Boys-style backdrop and lyrics that embrace the familiar trappings of guns, cars, women, and pride, but with unexpected flashes of Zen beyond the usual laid-back bearing. Fabolous goes the more straightforward route on "Tit 4 Tat" and "Baby," both certainly capable of lighting up the radio. However, the highlight of REAL TALK may be on the mid-album track "Church," where, with the aid of the ever-entertaining Charlie Murphy, Fabolous envisions himself a preacher, a man who can convert people with the power of the words in his arsenal. Fabolous possesses a mind brimming with phraseology, and he brandishes his skills with power and ease, even as he continues to develop, making for an intriguing record rich with high hopes for the future.

Artist Overview

While Fabolous's style is all about flash, there's nothing particularly showy, unique, or groundbreaking about the NYC rapper's game; however, with a knack for bringing out the best in some of hip-hop's top producers and a flow that is consistently, comfortably solid, Fabolous rose to become one of the '00s masters of the hip-hop jam. Singles like 2001's "Can't Deny It" and 2004's "Breathe" featured the MC's swaggering, dragging drawl over hook-heavy Bad Boy-style beats, and soared to the upper portions of both the rap and pop charts.

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.172)
- 3 1/2 stars out of 5 - "'Breathe,' an epic Just Blaze production, is a small masterpiece of lyrical economy in the face of musical bombast."
