Rap-Up TV: Fabolous Talks ‘Loso’s Way 2,’ Collaborations, & New Release Date

Fabolous is currently traveling across the country with Pusha T on “The Life Is So Exciting” tour, which wraps next month. Fresh off the stage at Club Nokia in L.A. last Friday, Loso caught up backstage with Rap-Up TV.

Surrounded by ladies and his friend Trey Songz (who he brought out to perform with Cassie), the Brooklyn MC told us what to expect from his upcoming album Loso’s Way 2: Rise to Power.

“Just a little bit of growth. I’ma give you what I do and some collaborations here and there, but definitely some evolution as an artist, as a man, as a father, as a friend,” he said of the sequel to 2009’s Loso’s Way. “Just talking about some real shit and still doing what I do, giving you some witty lines, giving you some catchy stuff for the ladies. Just good music overall.”

The album will feature collaborations with Future, Young Jeezy, Rick Ross, Ne-Yo, 2 Chainz, and Trey Songz, who was in the room during the interview.

Previously due June 18, Loso’s Way 2 will now arrive in late July (either the 23rd or 30th). “We actually pushed back a little bit. We needed to handle some technicalities.”

Twelve years after releasing his debut, Fab feels confident about his status in the game. “I’m cool, I’m blessed, and God has blessed me to be here,” he said. “This is a young man’s game, so it’s a blessing just to be here still now.”

He plans to do some acting, but music remains his focus. “I definitely want to get more present in the game.”
