If you are a celebrity or famous athlete you probably have been to a party also attended by Fabolous or one of the members of his "Street Family." Likely they got to shooting the hit with you and asked if you had bought any new cars or jewelery recently and basically had this same conversation repeatedly throughout the evening. If one subject sounded particularly promising, they might ask if they were going on a road trip soon or filming on location somewhere.
Now, if you were to walk up to Fabolous right now he would deny he's connected to a string of robberies on high profile sports stars, which culminated in the knife murder of his friend in a nightclub in New York.
Investigators have implicated several members of the star's Street Family in the robbery of former football
The gang responsible for the thefts is believed to have about 20 members, all are from Brooklyn, the area the rapper grew up, and are former drug dealers.
New York police claim that Shamel McKinney, Fabolous’ friend was trying to rob a man in a nightclub last month when he was stabbed to death.
However 30-year-old Fabolous, real name John Jackson, has refuted claims he is involved with criminals.
He tells AllHipHop.com, "I would like my fans and supporters worldwide to know how disappointed I am in some of the media for the misrepresentation and abuse of my name. "I do not want the young people who listen to my music
Notice that he doesn't actually deny it. He just says he doesn't want his fans to believe it. Has he seen Charlize Theron lately?
