Fabolous Talks Ryan Leslie, Ne-Yo Super Group
It was in mid-April when Brooklyn MC Fabolous released the remix to his infectious radio hit ‘You Be Killin’ Em.’ The synth-heavy track, which has already been circulating online and in clubs, features R&B crooner and songwriter Ne-Yo and studio wizard Ryan Leslie — who also handled production duties on the female-friendly cut. And according to Fab, a much-rumored supergroup featuring his remix cohorts is now beginning to pick up steam.
“We’ve been kicking it around,” Fabolous tells the BoomBox. “I think the only issue is everybody’s schedules … me, Ryan and Ne-Yo.”
As for what fans could expect from the ambitious trio, Fab says the skies the limit. “You can hear the potential on ‘You Be Killin’ Em Pt. 2″ he explains excitedly. “That was a little taste of the Fab-Ryan-Leslie-Ne-Yo project. That song is directed a little bit more towards the ladies, but it’s not the whole package of what it could be. We are capable of so much more.”
Recently, Fabolous dropped his critically-acclaimed ‘The S.O.U.L. Tape.’ He is set to release his follow-up studio album, ‘Loso’s Way 2: Rise to Power,’ later this year.
