The event took place at Brooklyn’s Borough Hall, and hosted guests like fellow artists Wale, Ryan Leslie, and Fab’s most trusted mixtape collaborator, DJ Clue. Another confidant, Swizz Beatz, also shared a few reminiscent words on his “Return of the Hustle” partner, referring to Fab as a “secret weapon.”
“He’s the secret weapon for fashion, the secret weapon for music, the secret weapon for creativity. He’s the secret weapon behind a lot of artists doing what they do today,” the famed producer said. Fabolous, born John David Jackson, also took to Instagram to share his sentiments on the honor, which was bestowed upon him during an Icon Talks event.
Swizz also called for Fab to end his mixtape run and head back into the studio to craft a new album. Hopefully Loso will take his advice and give fans a new body of tunes this year.
