With a live band set up on the House of Blues stage, the audience awaited Fabolous and his crew.
Shortly after Wicked (Suffolk's Hip-Hop Dance Crew) performed, Fabolous' DJ set up his laptop and quickly got the crowed hyped up again.
The DJ dropped Fab's famous "R.I.P. to the competition" tag-line from his mixtape as Loso slowly emerged from the back of the stage wearing a born fly (boutique company) denim jacket and red pants.
“It's versatile,” said Fabolous when asked about his fashion. “Depending on how I feel is how I dress.”
The Brooklyn-born rapper started off his set with various hits from his most recent mixtape, "There is no Competition 3" which was released on Christmas Day last year.
Fab then took a trip down memory lane, asking the audience how many of them were fans since day one. To Fabolous' surprise, there were many people singing along to his early hits such as "Young'n" "Cant Deny It" and "Breathe."
Loso continued his set list with verses off featured tracks like "Start it Up" "Make me Better" "Say Aah" and "Throw it in the Bag"
Although he wore his New York Yankees fitted hat proudly to represent his hometown, Fab finished his set by saying, "Boston, You be Killin' Em.”
“I had a great time -- Suffolk was a great crowd tonight,” said Fabolous after the concert. “I took them back to songs that I did in 2000 and they knew every word, it shows me that they definitely are music fans and Fabolous fans.”
Backstage, he was nice enough to greet members of the concert committee and take a few pictures. In a short interview with the Voice, the rapper talked about what the future holds for him.
“I got two projects coming,” said Fabolous. “The album [Loso's Way 2] which is coming in February, and I got a mixtape that I'm putting out called S.O.U.L Tape 2 which is going to come out Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving.”
The humble rapper made sure he thanked everyone, again, before exiting the House of Blues and fading into the Boston night.
