The Funeral Service may be over, but Fabolous is still in mourning. The Brooklyn rapper has selected a title and release date for a repackaging of his mixtape.
F-A-B-O had the Internet abuzz with his mixtape There Is No Competition 2: The Funeral Service. Released in March, the 20-track set featured appearances from Nicki Minaj, Trey Songz, Juelz Santana, and more.
Now Fab will release his street offering to retail on August 24 under the title There Is No Competition 2: The Grieving Music EP, Rap-Up.com has learned. He has been in the studio recording new material for the project.
“Def Jam decided to put out TiNc2 the Funeral Service mixtape as a EP in August,” he first revealed on Twitter last month. “So im in the studio workin on a few new songs…”
Fab is not the first rapper in recent memory to charge for something that was originally free. Drake reissued his So Far Gone mixtape in September, which went on to sell around 500,000 copies.
