Fabolous was upset to learn that there were a number of people impersonating him on Myspace.com.

Fab said he got in touch with MySpace and got control of the page and all the friends that were originally registered to it. Fabolous responded to the impostors with a dis freestyle posted on his page. "When I first got hooked up [on MySpace.com], there were already 19 Fabolouses on there. I had to make a code name, they had my name so many ways. Not even a fan page, niggas was saying they were Fabolous. So we hooked up with the people who run [MySpace.com] and shut all them niggas down." Fab laughed, "Yeah, a bunch of mini-me's. I guess they were doing it for the chicks or whatever you can get out of it. They was probably getting all types of free shit. But I had to shut that shit down. You never know what niggas is doing with your name."

He plans to release his fourth album in October. "I'm going to do a lock-in period," he said of the recording process. "Sometimes you get a track and just work on that track then get another track and work on that track. What I did was get a bunch of tracks and we gonna go down to Miami and just see how many records come out of it. Usually that other way is a little slower for me. It takes a longer period of time. So I will try a different approach. Hopefully it'll work for me. I been chillin' for so long, holdin' some stuff in." Besides Miami, Fabolous said he might make some music in Las Vegas for a change of pace. He has so far recorded a track for the album produced by Jazze Pha.
