Sometimes, the best words to express how you feel are already in a love song. As a Valentine’s Day treat, we’ve got the perfect Valentine’s Day playlist for you and your boo. Instead of taking the easy way out and compiling R&B songs which are already meant for love, we decided to look at some of the best love songs in Hip-Hop. (more…)

Taking a shot at Fabolous‘ Soul Tape 3 track “Cuffin Season,” Young Chris hops on the soulful beat to drop a cold freestyle. Young Chris has been on a roll, and we don’t want to see him stop. What do you think of his verse?
Fabolous dropped the Soul Tape 3 mixtape on Christmas, as a gift of free music to young adults who may not have gotten many presents. The Soul Tape installments have become fan favorites, with Fab taking some of the soulful beats out and killing them lyrically. Fab talks to Fuse about the thought process between mixtape cover selections, and music content. He explains how he gravitates towards the different “feel” of music. Although Soul Tape 3 kept its soulful beats, he changed this one up from the last two by choosing to give it more of a street sound, unlike the first two. This interview by Fuse is pretty dope and gives a lot of insight into the hit tracks on the tape.
The mixtape created a huge hype. A lot of the buzz stemmed from “The Get Back,” the song which responds to Kendrick Lamar‘s “Control” verse. What did Fab have to say? Hit the jump!
Merry Christmas, from us and Fabolous. In the holiday spirit, he releases the third installment of his Soul Tape series today on Christmas at 12:25 PM EST, as promised. Features include Stacy Barthe, Meek Mill, Jadakiss, Jeezy, Jeremih, Ryan Leslie, Mack Wilds and more. Enjoy!
With only five days to go, Fabolous drops the trailer for his Soul Tape 3 mixtape. The clip begins with composer John Williams‘ “Star Of Bethlehem” (remember when that song came on in the movie Home Alone, just before Macaulay Culkin‘s big showdown?) playing in the background, while snow falls onto the streets of Brooklyn, indicating the trouble is about to start. Then, a new track produced by AraabMuzik comes on and we get even more shots of New York.
The mixtape will drop on Christmas Day, 12/25/13 at 12:25 PM. Can’t wait!
For the first track off his upcoming Soul Tape 3 Mixtape, Fabolous drops “Everything Was The Same” f. Stacy Barthe. The Brooklyn rapper uses some of his most popular Soul Tape 2 lines in a brand new combination, proving that even with recycled bars, his word play is impeccable. The black and white visuals show Fab taking a walk down a long, lonely rode as he reflects on how everything is still the same. Same Fab, same M-O. He’s good at building anticipation. Soul Tape 3 drops Christmas Day, 12:25 PM!
If you’re already a big Fabolous fan, you are already aware of how consistant his mixtape projects are. If not, listening to his mixtapes can easily make you become one. That is why his Soul Tape 3 announcement can be considered a special holiday treat! That’s right. Fab announced, via Instagram, that Soul Tape 3 is underway and will drop on Christmas.
No word on who will be included on the third installment of the Soul Tape collection, but the previous two included features by so many great artists including Lil Wayne, Pusha T, Joe Budden, Wale, J. Cole, Lloyd Banks, Cassie, Ne-Yo, Teyana Taylor and Trey Songz. Producers involved on the previous projects include J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, Drumma Boy, Ryan Leslie, Just Blaze, J.
