Like it or not, Fabolous's punchline-centric and monotone-voiced flow has been one of the most influential voices of the post-Y2K world, affecting artists as, uh, not disparate as Cassidy and Lloyd Banks. Maybe Jadakiss should really take full credit, though, because that's who Fabolous has always kind of sounded like. On this, his third LP, Fabolous is supported by ubiquitous names like the Neptunes, Poke & Tone, Sean Paul, Just Blaze and Nate Dogg, and the result is often musically pleasing, albeit not overly memorable or easily identifiable. It's almost too consistent an album; it could have been made by any urban artist of 2004. Rap officially needs a new way to be.
