Last weekend, New York rapper Fabolous talked about missing a Scorpion Miami listening party.
Fell asleep & missed the listening party last night in Miami. (you know one of those ima just take a 20-30 min nap but you wake up 2 hours later like 😳) Anyway, missed it but had my own listening session on the plane. Which is actually one of my favorite places to take in albums… So many vibes & catch each 1 smoothly. Talk for the culture, address rumors, satisfy the base, keep the women listening & still talk that talk for the bar fans like myself! & it seems like a project you hear stuff later or take liking to certain songs down the line. Job well done. Congrats to my fellow Scorpio brother @champagnepapi on the new project #Scorpion 🦂
