Though Throw It In The Bag has all the makings of a pop hit (it’s already reached #1 on our Rap Chart), Fabolous has wisely decided to cater to his street fanbase by making the other half of his dual lead single something a little more hardcore. Over a bass-heavy “pump ‘em up” beat by The Runners (who’ve been making a lot of those lately), Loso declares that, now that he’s reached the senior album stage, “It’s My Time;” that is, he’s ready to take his place as one of the best rappers ever, dead or alive. The arguable highlight, though, comes courtesy of the latest Def Jam signee to get “on the hook;” that’s right, Mr. Birthday Sex himself (who’s sitting at #1 on this week’s Top Picks Chart) steals the show with a sweeping hook. As the baseball season gets underway (and the basketball and hockey playoffs continue), stadium/arena DJs should take a listen to It’s My Time—it’s not hard to imagine Kobe and LeBron getting pumped up to this record before their (likely) meeting at the NBA Finals.
