Fabolous Jumps on Mobb Deep’s Shook Ones II and Goes Berserk (Audio)

What is it about Mobb Deep’s Shook Ones II instrumental that brings out the best in MCs? Prodigy and Havoc’s original version is an enduring classic and, of course, the track also elicited Kendrick Lamar’s epic 2013 BET Hip Hop Awards Cypher. Now, Fabolous has chosen the track as the next installment of his Friday Night Freestyles series and he’s supplied one of his grittiest rhymes in years.

Fab reminds that, in addition to his ability to rock R&B tracks with catchy hooks, he can shift into merciless mixtape mode, as well. Check it out.
