9. Fabolous “Can’t Let You Go” Feat. Lil Mo & Mike Shorey
In 2003, Fabolous was the coolest rapper to ever get caught up in a love triangle for his music video “Can’t Let You Go.” In the video, Fabolous is telling a story about a relationship he is having with his girlfriend and twin sister only for it to come to a head at the very end.

8. Fabolous “Diamonds” Feat. Young Jeezy
“Diamonds” is the first single from Fabolous’ album From Nothin’ to Somethin’. This song samples Jay-Z’s line from “Money Ain’t a Thang”. The voice sampled on the “Diamonds” chorus is actually Young Jeezy, and it is a line from the Fabolous song “Do the Damn Thing” from his album Real Talk.

“Throw It in the Bag” is the first single from Fabolous’ album Loso’s Way. The song features The-Dream. The song was leaked early, and it was initially not supposed to be the lead single, but after the leak, Fabolous changed his mind because of the positive response he got from fans on Twitter. Christina Milian (Dream’s ex-wife), Irv Gotti, DJ Clue and Ryan Leslie all make cameo appearances in the video. The video won for Best Viewer’s Choice at the 2009 BET Hip Hop Awards and ranked at #24 on BET’s Notarized Top 100 Videos of 2009 countdown.

4. Fabolous “Can’t Deny It” Feat. Nate Dogg
“Can’t Deny It” is the debut single by Fabolous from his debut studio album “Ghetto Fabolous.” It features Nate Dogg and uncredited backing vocals by Lil’ Mo. This was Fabolous’ coming out party and instantly became the new young all star in hip-hop.
