M.U. 7 Panelist Profiles: Mistah F.A.B

One of the most prominent and colorful figures of the San Francisco Bay Area hyphy movement in the late 2000s -- sometimes hailed as the scene's "crown prince" -- North Oakland-based rapper Mistah F.A.B. presents a somewhat exceptional combination of street credibility, social consciousness, and astute introspection. Mistah F.A.B. is an acronym for "Money Is Something to Always Have - FaEva Afta Bread.

Mistah F.A.B. began his musical rise in the Bay Area as a young artist signed to Straight Hits Entertainment, where he dropped his debut album, Nig-Latin in 2003. Although this album garnered some success and recognition, the majority of FAB's recognition came from his skills as a battle rapper. Mistah F.A.B. has battled many MC's in the Hip Hop world. Some of whom include, Clyde Carson of The Team, Killa Keise, Lil Al, Spade, and Locksmith of The Frontline. FAB is most known for his freestyle battles with Jin of Ruff Ryders, and Royce Da 5'9. Fab has the uncanny ability to freestyle for long stretches of time. Specifically, he is known for freestyling, or rapping "off the top of the dome" on a whim, that is he is able to do it anywhere at anytime. This is evident when he did a freestyle from his hospital bed after his car accident.
