The Artist: Fabolous
The Mixtape: 2011's The S.O.U.L. Tape
Why It Didn't Live Up To The Hype: When Fab first start pushing this project, he said that it was inspired by Jay-Z's Blueprint album. That made us think it would be a super crazy 'tape filled with soul samples. That's not what we got, though. Fab had a good thing going with his There Is No Competition series and he probably would have been better off sticking to that script. We give him credit for trying to ride the wave of success after "You Be Killin' 'Em" took off, but this didn't really capitalize off of it.
