Street Dreams (2003)

Details Release Date: Mar 04, 2003; Lead Performance: Fabolous; Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

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.
