blame it on Shake December 1, 2014

As we previously reported, Fabolous has put Loso’s Way 2 on hold and has put his sole focus on his upcoming release, The Young OG Project.

Arriving on Christmas day, Loso’s next project is said to be “very ’90s-inspired and ’90s themed.” Speaking with MTV, Roc Nation’s latest acquisition had the following to say:

It was a golden era in hip-hop to me. It was where I fell in love with hip-hop and really admired everything that was going on within the culture.

I was introduced to hip-hop in the ’80s but the ’90s is when it flourished and you saw different people, different styles and different regions emerge – it was a very diverse and versatile time and that’s another reason why it sticks to me.

Before the album drops, we’ll be hit with the first single “Lituation” which Loso explains as well.

This is a word that I’ve been hearing floating around and I thought, why not make a song out of it?’ It’s really about a situation that can get lit.

You can come into a situation and it can be [calm] and you can turn it up and get it a little lit. It’s a very aggressive New York street record and I wanted to start with that just to get the feel, and get you there first, [then] the rest of the album will take you different places.

Check out the official cover art above, his chat with Music Television below, and be on the lookout for any pre-album drops that we’ll be lacing with you all month.
