    This record should be a blueprint for how to make a hip-hop & R'n'B pop crossover. The production goes far beyond hip-hop and R'n'B boundaries whilst still retaining all the elements that make it a popular success. For once the use of Auto-tune actually improves the sounds and Fabolous's typically basic yet confident style is a match for Jay-Z on "Money Goes, Honey Stay".

For once the use of Auto-tune actually improves the sounds and Fabolous's typically basic yet confident style is a match for Jay-Z on "Money Goes, Honey Stay". Every track could be a single which is a huge compliment to the overall production values. Even if you have never followed Fabolous (ie. me) this record will change your opinion of his relevance to today's hip-hop culture. The opening tracks "My Time" & "Imma Do It" are the standout tracks that sound superb on bigger sub soundsystems. 9/10 88/100 Collapse

  1. Add it all up and this not-so-conceptual-after-all album points out both the rapper's limitations and his strengths. Call it a draw.
  2. This set isn’t very revealing, though, as Fabolous alternates typical gun-toting swagger (who knew he called his gun Nadia? Who cared?) with the kind of clever wordplay that should be keeping other MCs up at night. This is a record simply built to make the Brooklyn-born rapper huge.
  3. His fifth full-length disc, Loso's Way, delivers on every front once again: a bundle of rewind-worthy punchlines, some cleverer-than-average crime stories, and a handful of tracks where he's smart or humble enough to stand aside and allow an enormous R&B hook to work its magic.
