Fabolous went all out while celebrating his 36th birthday with a “Great Gatsby”-themed party at Jazz Room at The General in New York last night. Clad in a tuxedo, the dapper rapper arrived in style in a vintage Rolls-Royce with his girlfriend Emily B. He made his way inside and partied with his loved ones including his mother and pals Adrienne Bailon, Swizz Beatz, Meek Mill, and DJ Clue, who all dressed up for the ’20s-themed bash.
“Celebrating Life with my King! Happy Birthday,” tweeted Emily.
Vintage jazz band Honey & Vinyl entertained the crowd, who toasted the birthday boy and serenaded him with “Happy Birthday.” Meek Mill got on the mic and performed “Levels,” while Ne-Yo and Fab teamed up for “Make You Better.”
The Brooklyn rapper has been in the studio working on his Soul Tape 3 mixtape, which will include a song for the “slim thick girls” featuring Jeremih.

Hip-hop and R&B’s biggest stars came together for Power 99′s Powerhouse 2013 in Philadelphia on Friday. The star-studded concert included performances from Chris Brown, Kendrick Lamar, Wale, Big Sean, 2 Chainz, K. Michelle, Mario, Ace Hood, Sevyn Streeter, and Philly’s own Meek Mill.
The MMG rapper put on for his hometown by bringing out Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, Jadakiss, and French Montana during his headlining set.
Despite his tweet from earlier in the day (“Aye @kendricklamar ima show you who king on this side at powerhouse Friday!”), he shrugged off any beef between him and the Compton MC.
“Me and Kendrick, we cool guys,” Meek told Mina SayWhat backstage. “When I see Kendrick, we smile and laugh about it. No negative stuff.”
Chris Brown ripped the Wells Fargo Center with his hits including “Fine China” and “Love More,” while 2 Chainz turned up with Big Sean for “All Me.”
In addition to burning up the stage, the Atlanta rapper is also cooking up a potential culinary show. “People have approached me. We’ll see,” said 2 Chainz, whose sophomore album B.O.A.T.S. II includes a cookbook.
On Tuesday, DJ Khaled will release his seventh album Suffering From Success featuring Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, J. Cole, Drake, and many more. The Miami mogul gives hope to the streets in the star-studded video for his latest single “Never Surrender.”
Scarface, Jadakiss, and Meek Mill deliver gritty verses, while Akon, John Legend, and Anthony Hamilton provide the soulful soundtrack. Also look for cameos from Rick Ross, Juelz Santana, and French Montana.
Watch the all-star crew persevere through adversity.
Meek Mill still has more rhymes left over from his mixtape Dreamchasers 3. The Maybach Music MC does some flexing on a freestyle to Drake and Jay Z’s “Pound Cake” featuring fellow Philly MC Spade-O of Major Figgas.
Over the Boi-1da-produced instrumental, he boasts about his young and flashy lifestyle. “All real estate, fuck it, I’m buying the curb/ I buy a crib every week, from the ‘hood to the ‘burbs/ Make investments with this money I’m blessed with,” he raps.
