Mistah F.A.B. Jumps on Song With East Coast MCs, Declares Himself "Probably The Greatest"

Posted By on Tue, Oct 18, 2011 at 7:57 AM


Fresh off of a bit of East Coast buzz for executing a logic-defying freestyle/self-interview on MTV's RapFix Live, Oakland's Mistah F.A.B. released "Probably The Greatest," a collaboration with veteran New York rappers Jadakiss and N.O.R.E. that will be on his next mixtape, I Found My Backpack Part 2.

Over a commanding sample of classical music strings set over a beat by Bay Area producer Ekzakt, the three get to claiming their badness. F.A.B. opts for those sports references that East Coast rap fans like, throwing in little jabs such as, "Let's face it, I'm hated and underrated/F.A.B. Mayweather, motherfucker, I'm the greatest!"

His guests insist that he has "the ultimate pass" in New York -- better than gold, says N.O.R.E., F.A.B.'s got uranium-style status. Or something. Grab the track via Usershare, an upload thanks to N.O.R.E.'s site

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
