Fabolous Says He Isn’t Jacking Jay-Z

Posted By on July 16, 2009

    So is Fabolous' new "Loso's Way" album jacking the whole idea of Jay-Z's "American Gangster"? Although the two albums both feature a movie-based gangster type them, Fabolous says there are a lot of differences. "I think it's a lot different," he said in an interview. "Just looking at the cover of Jay's American Gangster and the timing of when American Gangster came out, it gave you a different feel. It almost gave you a soundtrack to the movie versus where Carlito's Way came out in '94 so it's different. [A themed album] was just something that I wanted to do, and to do that I needed something to set that was close to my story." [watch here]
