Fabolous released the “Summertime Shootout 3: Coldest Summer Ever” on Black Friday and included several bangers to end 2019. Fabolous is one of the rare artists that can continuously make hits regardless of musical breaks.
The Summertime Shootout series began in November 2015 and Fabolous continues to provide irresistible songs in the cold months for his fans to enjoy during the holiday season.
As usual, Fabolous provides undeniable lyrics that make for perfect instagram captions. On the single, “Seasons Change” featuring Tory Lanez, Fabolous raps, “Got me in my feelings, like Shiggy in the Summer.”
One aspect of this Summertime Shootout 3 mixtape that stands out to me are the samples used on the records. Fabolous seamlessly combines the old school vibes with the modern voices of the Hip Hop game.
The artists featured on Summertime Shootout 3 include several top artists in the music industry such as Chris Brown, Meek Mill, A-Boogie, Ty Dolla $ign, Tory Lanez, Lil Durk, Roddy Ricch, PnB Rock, Davido, Jeremih and more. Only a veteran in the Hip Hop game such as Fabolous would be able to work this wide range of music artists.
“Thought I had you but I had to learn, I ain’t have you, I just had my turn.”
The songs on this project cover every occasion including club nights, romantic vibes and unforgettable times.
The reason I love listening to Fabolous’s music is because of the song concepts. His songs have a meaning and also have catchy lyrics embedded in the songs.
On the single, “Gone for the Summer,” Fabolous raps,
“Lets keep it 100, even Benjamin got a big head, Money changes small faces into big heads.”
Frenemies is a relatable song as most people have experienced friend betrayal.
One of my favorite songs on the project is titled, “Cold Summer” which also happens to be the first song on the project. The build up is perfect and the vibe defines New York.
