Fabolous Updates Nas’ Black Girl Lost With His Best 90s Freestyle Yet (Audio)
It takes a brave heart to follow Nas on a track. For the latest in his top notch series of 90s throwback freestyles, that’s exactly what Fabolous does and he responds with his best to date. On Nasir‘s “Black Girl Lost,” from It Was Written, Esco weaves a mournful tale about a woman who is lost from abuse–at the hands of others and herself. Two decades later, Fab picks up where God’s Son left off and tells a similarly complicated story.
This is the latest in what has been a seemingly rejuvenating freestyle series for Fabolous. In going back to tracks that likely influenced him along the way, he’s regained the hunger and form with which he started his career. His range has been widespread also, from the grime of Mobb Deep and Wu-Tang Clan to the gloss of Puff Daddy and Mase.
Let’s hope there’s a complete mixtape in the end, as has been the case with other choice freestyle series. Check out “Black Girl Lost Freestyle.”
