Fabolous YOUNG OG cover

Fabolous always drops solid projects around the holidays, but it’s usually in the form of a mixtape. This time, we’ll be getting a full album, which Loso announced today via MTV.

Along with the announcement he signed to Jay Z’s Roc Nation imprint (I’m unsure whether for a record label or for management,) Fabolous confirmed that Young OG will drop on digital retailers on Christmas, and the first single from the project will be called “Lituation.”

“This is a word that I’ve been hearing floating around and I thought, why not make a song out of it?’” Fab said about the song title. “It’s really about a situation that can get lit. You can come into a situation and it can be [calm] and you can turn it up and get it a little lit. It’s a very aggressive New York street record and I wanted to start with that just to get the feel, and get you there first, [then] the rest of the album will take you different places.”

As for the album, it will be “very ’90s-inspired and ’90s themed,” which makes sense with his recent birthday party!

“It was a golden era in hip-hop to me,” Fab said. “It was where I fell in love with hip-hop and really admired everything that was going on within the culture. I was introduced to hip-hop in the ’80s but the ’90s is when it flourished and you saw different people, different styles and different regions emerge – it was a very diverse and versatile time and that’s another reason why it sticks to me.”

Congrats on the Roc Nation move and can’t wait for the album! Check out the Young OG trailer below.
