Fabolous Says 'Loso's Way 2' is Almost Done, Assures It Won't Be 'Ratchet'

(AllHipHop News) Ten year rap veteran Fabolous is still working on the sequel to his number 1 album, 2009's Loso's Way. Fab tells billboard.com that Loso's Way 2 is nearly finished except for some last-minute adjustments.

"I’d say it's 80-85% done. I’d even give some of that 15% to working daily until I’ve got to turn it in. You may come with a record that’s urgent, that has to be on that project, the day before you turn in," shared Fabolous with Billboard.

Fab revealed that he has some high-profile features set up for the new LP. He has already recorded with Chris Brown, Rick Ross, John Legend, Future, Ne-Yo, Trey Songz, Young Jeezy, and Chrisette Michelle, but he's still not sure which songs will appear on the final tracklist. He also hinted that a Brooklyn-Queens collaboration featuring "God's Son" could be in the works.

"I’m still working on piecing it together and making it sonically fit. I even got a text today and was speaking to Nas about doing something as well."

While Fab is still unsure exactly which collabs will be on Loso's Way 2, he does feel confident to say that his new album will not reflect what he calls the "ratchet era."

"It's the ratchet era right now. Ratchet is really mainstream," says Fabolous. Speaking on the upcoming video for the single "Ready" featuring Chris Brown, he adds, "I want to bring back the illusion and sense of fantasy, not just do the ratchet shit that everybody else is doing."

Loso's Way 2 will be Fabolous's 6th studio album. It's currently scheduled for release in April 2013. Last November Fabolous dropped The S.O.U.L. Tape 2 mixtape which features songs with J. Cole, Pusha T, Trey Songz, Cassie, Wale, Joe Budden, and Teyana Taylor.
