Fabolous Pays Homage to ‘Will Smith’ on New Freestyle Song
Fabolous got a new joint that pays homage to rapper-turned-box office superstar Will Smith. The new track, ‘Will Smith,’ first premiered on ‘Sway In The Morning’ when the Brooklyn rapper stopped through for an interview and a quick freestyle session.
Produced by Mally the Martian, the song opens up to a quote by Smith when he portrayed the character of Chris Gardner in the 2006 movie, ‘The Pursuit of Happyness.’
“Don’t ever let somebody tell you, you can’t do something...not even me. Alright? You got a dream? You have to protect it. People can’t do something themselves, they wanna tell you, you can’t do it. You want something? Go get it. Period," Smith tells Jaden Smith who played Gardner’s son in the film.
Over a mellow jazz-inspired groove, Fabo spits braggadocios lines of reaching his dreams by any means necessary. He even gets timely in his verse with a punchline quip about Cliff Huxtable.
“Letting people take advantage ain’t my style at all / You’d rather ask Bill Cosby for a Tylenol,” he spits.
Ooh! Is it too soon to joke about Mr. Cosby yet? Tell us in the comments below.
In the meantime, Fabolous is prepping to release 'The Young OG Project' in stores on Christmas Day.
