Fabolous surprised fans last night with an impromptu release of his latest project, Summertime Shootout 2: The Level Up. This is the second in this new mixtape series, the first of which was released on Thanksgiving last year.
The 14-track tape features appearances from Wale, Dave East, Don Q and more, and also has some classic Fab remixes of popular songs. Interestingly, he included “Flex,” the Joe Budden single he recently appeared on – but took Joe‘s verse off and just kept his verse and Tory Lanez on the hook. Maybe clearance issues?
