Biography - A Sudden Success Story
Brooklyn-born John Jackson keeps a low profile for a hip-hop superstar and little
is known about his life before he burst onto the scene in 2001. His Rick Rock-produced debut single 'Can't Deny It', featuring
a 2Pac sample, became an instant hit, making him a flagship artist for DJ Clue's Desert Storm label. Artists like Timbaland
and the Neptunes were eager to contribute to his cult classic first album Ghetto Fabolous, the record that cemented
him as a household name.
Sophomore album Street Dreams became another success in 2003, hitting Number 5 in the
charts off the back of hits 'Trade It All', 'Can't Let You Go' and 'Into You'. His gold-selling fourth album From Nothin'
To Somethin' soared to Number 2 in the Billboard Hot 100 in 2007, selling over 500,000 copies worldwide. The single 'Make
Me Better' earned the accolade of Top Rap Song of 2008 at the American Music Awards. The rapper returned in 2009 with fifth
album Loso's Way, his most successful record to date. Buy Fabolous tickets at StubHub UK to see this iconic rapper
