On Sunday night (Jan. 15th), Drake showed love to Fabolous for the influence the Brooklyn rapper had on his career.
Drake paid homage to Fabolous for his influence and impact on his career. Fabolous is a rappers rapper in many ways. Though hes far from the commercial heights he was once at, theres really no doubt how impactful he was to the game. From his wordplay to his swag and laidback demeanor, Fab had the game on lock at one point in time. Over the weekend, Drake hit Instagram with a tribute post to Fab, giving the Brooklyn rapper credit for shaping his style and sound. The rapper posted two throwbacks of Fab in the early 2000s, stating that he wouldnt be anywhere without this guy. Real shit @myfabolouslife was really just taking in how much you influenced everything for me, Drizzy wrote. In a subsequent post, he shared his love for 112. Wouldnt be shit without this, he added. Drake hasnt shied away from embracing Fabs influence on him in the past, either. During a 2018 birthday party, Drake as Fab, donning a blue Kobe Bryant LA Lakers jersey with a matching fitted cap and a bandana tied on top of it. The two previously worked together on the Throw It In The Bag (Remix) . However, there was speculation that there was tension between them after Rolling Stone published an interview with Drake in 2014. Drake appeared to take shots at Fab in discussing Yes polarizing Yeezus album. There were some real questionable bars on there, Drake says in the interview. Like that Swag-hili line? Come on man, man. Even Fabolous wouldnt say some shit like that. Wale attend
