J-o-e Posted September 18, 2007 Report Share Posted September 18, 2007 Hey ya'll heres my review on Fabolous "From Nothing 2 Something" 1. From Nothin' To Somethin' Intro Typical Introduction, Nice long flow that sets the album of very nicely He decided to go more lyrically in this track, which i like when artists do this. 2. Yep, I'm Back Love the beat to begin with, defitenly a beat I would spit on, he pretty much states how better he is than he was, lyrically etc...not bad but not one of my favorite.... 3. Change Up-Feat. Akon Now this is one of my favorite tracks on the album...Akon does a great chorus The beat I believe is one of Akon's, and you can tell fabolous wrote this track Even though he does say he does a Jay and freestyles, It's a serouis but fun track... 4. Make Me Better-Feat. Ne-Yo Ya'll all heard this one, if you havent then what the hell? Ne-yo makes this song What it really is, even though Fab does say some intresting lines, like the opening of the track, this is yet another one of my favorite songs but will become repetitive eventually.... 5. Baby Don't Go-Feat. T-Pain Well typical T-pain chorus for all those T-pain lovers out there, if there is any but the lyrics and flow that Fabolous says on this track reminds me of Ma$e, especailly at the start, the verses and the beat is the best bit, even though JD's adlibs anoy the hell Out of me.... 6. Return Of The Hustle-Feat. Swiss Beats Swiss beats makes one again, I love the beat and pretty much the best part of the song Fabolous does a nice verse but another than that, pretty weak.... 7. Gangsta Don't Play-Feat. Junior Reid Now I love this track for at least a minute at the start, when the Junior Reid sings, this Man is a amazing reggae artist, he sings/raps for the first bit but fabolous part in it really Is dull, the beat is decent enough to rap on, but in my view not fabs style... 8. Real Playa Like-Feat. Lloyd Now Fab and Lloyd really have a connection with this track, should of been the first single In my view, I could imagine a smooth video for this, maybe there still will be....the beat is smooth Flows are smooth and the chorus is amazing, one of my favorite also.... 9. First Time-Feat. Rihanna Now any Rihanna fans out there will love this track, the beat is dope, she does the chorus very nicely, and it seems fab actually makes a genuiwine effort to make this track nice maybe he really does like Rihanna, heh who wouldnt:) 10. Diamonds-Feat. Young Jeezy "Diamonds On My Damn Chain" I'd change the track but the only reason I like it is for a few lines fab does spit on this song, the chorus is not orginal, i've heard it before, Young Jeezy is wack as usual, I've never liked him and it was a disapointment to see him on this album... 11. Brooklyn-Feat. Jay-Z & Uncle Murda A song dedicated to brooklyn, and im not suprised to see Jay-z on this album since he did Sign fab to def jam, but you can tell he rushed his verse, fab done his verse very well and I Never did hear of Uncle Murda, but his verse was nice...the chorus involves a chant of "brooklyn" Typical Shout Out to his home.... 12. I'm The Man-Feat. Red Cafe Now this song i always think Twice about, he boasts about himself being everything he can think Of but in the truth, he can make it convicing with the beats, he does a good job on the track but Not at all my favoirite track but i can still bop my head to it.... 13. Jokes On You-Feat. Pusha T A diss track to the people who say he's too serouis, so he does make a few jokes and makes me Laugh, Pusha T another artist I havent heard off done a nice few lines in this, the beats is on going and can be boring, maybe if they switched it a little bit.... 14. What Should I Do-Feat. Li'l Mo THIS Is the best song on the album by far, he raps 3 verses pretending to be another people, Could it be another "Stan" by eminem?, you need to here the words he says to get the song And Lil Mo does a great chorus which makes it to a lovely song.... 15. This Is Family-Feat. Ranso, Freck The Billionaire, Red Cafe, Joe Budden, Paul Cain [bonus Track] This shouldnt be a bonus track, he should have this on a mix tape, I dont like it Never Will. Overall Rating..7.5/10 To all those fab fans its defitenly an album to catch, hip hop fans maybe u like it maybe you won't, it's not the best album of the year, but I like it, I can get used to the tracks I don't like, like i did with other fab albums....
