Loso's Way, Fabolous' 5th LP, is supposed a concept album a la Jay-Z's American Gangster. Sure, the intro is called "The Way" and one of the closing tracks is named "Pachanga" after Luis Guzman's character in Carlito's Way, but that's where the concept ends. Instead, we end up with a typical Fabolous album -- monster singles, comical punchlines, redundant rhymes, and everything in between. Here's my take on Loso's Way.

Just heard the album. The review is pretty dead on… Fab’s good when he wants to be, but just looses his way at times.

Also, not that it matters to the actual content of the album, but the cover art could use some work.

This album is pretty tight. There are a few songs I skip over, but overrall the album is strong. I’m not a lil wayne fan, but the song salute is hot. The intro and Imma Do It are also banging.

I have heard his singles and I’m not impressed …I’m not speending my money on the album or even planing on downloading it (for free)…

Redundant lines? Are you kidding me? Jeezy does more redundant rhymes than anyone in the industry!

Have you heard his debut album? Full of punchlines, lines that rhyme the whole way through, and words that don’t rhyme on paper but he himself makes it flow so that only if you listen to it, you can have right brain sparks to know what he is rhyming about. This is his signature rhyme scheme. Heard of any of his mixtapes? I am questioning your authority as a plausible writer here. Fab had to change up his rhyme schemes because of the times when he dropped his alum in 2007. But now, he came up full circle with his style to father future MCs.

Clever metaphors and no dumbed down cliched nursery rhymes. If you want to rebuild Hip Hop the way it was 9 years ago, look up to Fabolous because Loso’s way is his most ambitious work yet – and I’m saying that from the listener’s point of view.
