Most people on the planet have had dreams at one point in their lives. Up-and-coming rapper Fabdon did too. Coming from Southside Jamaica, Queens, he developed an interest in hip-hop early. Queens is, after all, the home of many hip-hop icons, such as Nas and 50 Cent. With such a rich legacy, Fabdon didn’t lack role models and grew from strength to strength. By 2012, he was one of the fastest-rising stars from his borough. He bore all the markings of greatness and had already caught the attention of Power 105’s DJ Self, NYC’s self-proclaimed prince. DJ Self was ready to sign him to his Gwinin label, but unfortunately, that didn’t happen.
Fabdon’s dream was crushed in 2014 when the artist went to prison on conspiracy to commit murder and other charges. He spent the next 3 years in prison before they dropped the charges. When he came home, he found that DJ Self had signed his rival LouGotCash in his place. Before Fabdon could get his bearings and reclaim his career, he got into trouble again and went back to prison on charges of fraud.
Fabdon suffered another crushing blow when his former manager died during his sentence. Fabdon channeled the grief and used it to improve his life. He started reading more and developed more discipline. Then, despite everything, he started manifesting his future and believing he’d get an early release. Fabdon believes he spoke his reality into existence because his wishes came true shortly after. After serving his sentence for 3 years, he was released in 2020 when the pandemic hit.
This was Fabdon’s chance to reinvent and rebrand himself. He did so with a bang soon after his release by introducing new music. Luckily for him, DJ Self had dropped LouGotCash from his label and was still willing to support Fabdon. Two weeks after he came home, Fabdon was DJ Self’s guest on Power 105, and he’s continued to support him. Fabdon carried on rebuilding his life and avoiding trouble by avoiding procrastination, listening to his mother more, and traveling. That didn’t take long to pay off.
In 2021, Fabdon’s career took off more than ever before. First, he battled LouGotCash on the Lemon Pepper Beat, the hardest diss and freestyle of 2021, and crushed him. Secondly, he collaborated with big names in the industry and worked on awesome projects. For instance, he shared the stage with Pooh Shiesty in Rochester, where he’d been in prison only a few months earlier. He freestyled with King of Brooklyn, and also got an offer from Nas’s brother Jungle. Fabdon got to meet and mingle with him in the Queensbridge Projects.
Fabdon’s 2022 started on a high note. He released “Lamar Anthem” in February, which earned tens of thousands of listens in just a few weeks. In this track, he demonstrates his ability to not only write unforgettable lyrics but deliver them perfectly. In addition to making more music, he has been working and moving around with 50 Cent, one of the greats he’d always admired. Fabdon has always believed in miracles, but he believes this more now. As he continues to soar, he hopes to manifest bigger and grander miracles in the coming years.
In a few years, Fabdon sees himself dominating the industry as a mogul and an artist. He also has aspirations of getting into acting and making more music. Ultimately, he wants to inspire others and give them the same opportunities he received
