The mystery surrounding Fabolous’ forever delayed mixtape, There Is No Competition, Pt. 2: The Funeral Service, has become a bigger joke than his Twitter activity. The mixtape has been pushed back almost as much as the average album. Before the planned Christmas release of the mixtape, Fab bragged about how easy it is to release a mixtape. Little did he know that it never pays to brag?
Initially due on Christmas, Fabolous could not get up with DJ Drama, who was taking time off to be with his family. This was understood by Fab and his fans, so he received a pass. Later, the release for the mixtape was set for New Year’s. But, that release date also came and went, leading some to believe that the mixtape would never come. Early this month, Fabolous promised that his mixtape was still on the way.
But, with March right around the corner, the mixtape is still on the way. Fabolous did have a good excuse this time, though. Because of the fact that Jadakiss heard some of the mixtape, he wanted to be a part of it. The two rappers have been friends for some time, so it was not that big of a deal for Fabolous to push the mixtape back to featured Jadakiss on it. Now, Nicki Minaj wants to be on the mixtape.
Since Fabolous has already pushed the mixtape back for Jadakiss, he might as well give a guest spot to Nicki Minaj. She is expected to become one of hip hop’s fixtures in the next few months and into next year. Nicki Minaj will have a verse or two on Fabolous’ new mixtape.
