Fabolous – Lord Knows
‘Lord Knows’ is taken from the latest mixtape release from rapper Fabolous who released it at Christmas for free. The mixtape is titled ‘There is no competition: Death comes in threes’ and has 15 songs in length, and features the likes of Styles P, Lloyd Banks and Meek Mill. As a general rule you can expect some good quality music from Fabolous, and the immediate stand-out track from the release has to be ‘Lord Knows’.
‘Lord Knows’ has some amazing production, as dramatic drums clash against an eerie choir backdrop (Yes – this is the Just Blaze beat from Drake’s latest album). Elsewhere, Fabolous gives a lyrical exercise full of metaphors and punchlines, mixed in with his braggadocio style this makes for an excellent song, and a very strong end to 2011 for Fabolous.
