Mistah F.A.B. got everyone on this! Bay area stand up!
I don't think I've ever seen an album with as many hot rappers and singers on it than this. This could be the album of the year and it won't get any recognition. The best bay area rappers don't sell out to major record labels and let them change their sound, they stick to what got them where they are and make authentic music. Mistah F.A.B. is representing the westside well here, this makes me proud to be from the bay.
^ this comment knows what's up.
Mistah F.A.B. has major connections in 'Son of a Pimp Part 2'
The sequel to Oakland, California rapper Mistah FAB's 2005 LP Son of a Pimp wouldn't be what it is without the tremendous guest-help it gets, and that should be mentioned right from the jump. These superstar guests, including some of the most legendary Bay heroes and FAB's close friends (E-40, Too $hort, Keak Da Sneak, J. Stalin, Iamsu and even the late Jacka), are many, great and gracious. Let's not forget he also pays homage to the great Mac Dre (R.I.P.), but getting back to the point, there are so many features on this Son of a Pimp Part 2 album - think along the lines of Scarface's My Homies albums - that of course the quality makes calling it a hard earned, single-handed FAB achievement a trepidatious statement, and on top of that, without thinking about the accomplished guest verses, there is a lot of filler, spread across several songs, where not much of anything very important is discussed aside from wile-out, fun-loving notes. The styles in store however are varied, going everywhere FAB's friends come from, for good different flavors, hyphy included. Without a doubt, Mistah F.A.B. is one real social son of a gun who has the respect of his peers and knows how to bring the best out of them.
After going through fond childhood memories of being mesmerized and inspired by his dad, who was something of a suave, debonair ladies' man himself before FAB, in "Son of a Pimp," our gregarious guy gets right into it in "Not in Love Anymore" with Netta B singing a sample from rapper Ahmad's 1994 hit single "Back in the Day" in the cut. Immediately after, he dives into the album's first posse song of many, the fourth track "Pretty Girls" with Wu'er Raekwon, G-Eazy and r&b singer Carl Thomas. The ensuing four tracks as we'll see are really the heart of this project, as you may likely agree.
Boosie Badazz spits some eloquent inspiration in "Up Until Then" with K-Dot, Crooked I along with Kobe Honeycutt serving up intense lyrics on stories of ghetto tragedy and persevering through them in "Survive." Without confronting anyone (should he have?), FAB raps about the problems of the world and beseeches people to make or help make a change in "All Around The World." Then we have the fight-for-survival anthem "What Yo Hood Like" featuring Jadakiss, where FAB shoots some of if not the sharpest lines of his on the whole project.
A few ticks down the line, "Memory Lane" with Dyson does what it can to make dough and stay out of hood-trouble, and then, a group of songs thereafter, FAB ends his album on a very personal, very emotional tone. "Brother to Brother," with Dyson again, throws up jail pains and all sorts of other hurt from the inside in phone-convo format, and "Written in Blood" is melancholically nostalgic about the dark past and about the late Jacka, very similar to its preceding song. From the top to the bottom, from feelings of arrival, success and celebration to memories of pain and despair, Son of a Pimp Part 2 (May 27, Faeva Afta/Empire) covers pretty much everything Mistah FAB set out to cover, and it should seeing as how it's twenty-one tracks clocking in at an hour and twenty-four minutes long. There are regional flavors from all the major hip-hop hot spots of the U.S., a lot to unwind to and even some documentation to learn from. It's definitely a solid-enough piece of Cali Bay hip-hop history, but it would have been more impressive if FAB had done it more by-himself with less of the filler. Also, where are the Hieroglyphics? All things considered though, good job on the project, FAB.
