Fabolous Album Pushed Back

Posted By on March 30, 2007

Fans will have to wait until summer for the fourth album from Fabolous, the Brooklyn rapper's April release has been abandoned for a later date.

From Nothin' to Somethin', BK rapper Fabolous' first release since making the move from Atlantic Records to Def Jam, is now scheduled for release on June 12, according to Fab's official site.

The first single off From Nothin' to Somethin' "Diamonds" featuring Young Jeezy is currently in radio rotation. In addition to Jeezy, Ne-Yo also makes an appearance on the album and Timbaland, Just Blaze and Jazze Pha bring production to the set.

Fabolous' June release date is just the latest in a series of postponements; Def Jam previously discarded a December release date in favor of the April 17 scheduled release after the Brooklyn MC was shot in the leg last October.

In related news, Fabolous is scheduled to appear in next week's Power 105.1 "Birthday Bash." The concert, which celebrates the five years of broadcasting for WWPR-FM Power 105.1, will be held next Tuesday, April 3 at New York's Webster Hall. In addition to Fab, Swizz Beatz and Lloyd are also expected to take the stage.

From Nothin' to Somethin' lands in stores on June 12.
