John David Jackson (born November 18, 1977), better known by his stage name “Fabolous”, is an American rapper. Growing up in the Brooklyn area of New York City, he was among the first east coast rappers influenced by Southern hip hop sounds and first became popular through his hit single ‘Can’t Deny It’ in 2001, from his debut album “Ghetto Fabolous”. Fabolous has released four albums, which have collectively sold over three million copies in the United States.
Fabolous was born John David Jackson on November 18, 1977, of mixed African American and Dominican descent. He grew up in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. While a senior in high school, Fabolous rapped live on DJ Clue’s radio show and on WQHT Hot 97. He began to pursue a rap career late into twelfth grade.
Fabolous decided that it was time for him to start rapping seriously. He would call into DJ Clue’s radio show in late 1998, he ended up rapping for Clue, who would immediately sign him to his newly-formed Desert Storm Records. He would be featured on several DJ Clue mixtapes and mixtapes with Roc-A-Fella artists. This earned Fabolous and Desert Storm a distribution deal with Elektra Records. In 2001, they began to promote Fabolous and his debut album, “Ghetto Fabolous,” first by placing him on the remix to popular label-mate, Lil’ Mo’s ‘Superwoman (Remix).’
Before receiving mainstream popularity, Fabolous released a single in 1998 titled ‘If They Want It’ under his moniker,’Fabolous Sport’. It was released by Def Jam Recordings on the album “DJ Clue? The Professional” and as a bonus track on his debut album “Ghetto Fabolous”. It is also available on the DJ Kool Kid mixtape, “Pound For Pound” featuring Fabolous and Jadakiss. In 2000, he released a second single through Elektra Records titled ‘Gotta Be Thug’, which was put on “DJ Clue Presents Backstage Mixtape (soundtrack)”.
