Street Dreams

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap; Lead Performer: Fabolous; Guest Performer: Snoop Dogg; Producer (group): Asylum, Elektra

Richard Simmons must have gotten ahold of Fabolous’ second LP. The ideas are thin and the beats thinner – never have drums sounded so unpercussive as they do on ”Up on Things,” a duet with Snoop Dogg. Nor have backup singers ever sounded so pointless as on ”Call Me.” Fabolous himself comes off as being lighter than Jared from Subway – with all of Jay-Z’s arrogance, but none of his charisma.
