Fabdon’s career began to skyrocket in the New York hip-hop industry. It went on for a few years and Fabdon landed a unique opportunity to sign with DJ self for a deal with Power 105.1 radio.
There’s something about hip-hop that makes it more than just a musical genre. Apart from giving the artist the creative freedom to play with different elements, hip-hop has also managed to preserve its original magic even today. With the advent of technology and digitization, hip-hop has been redefined by many contemporary artists. The name that stands out among them is Fabdon. The rapper shot to fame in 2012, taking the New York hip-hop scene by storm for a few years until his career faded into the background. Now he’s back to pick up where he left off. Fabdon is now better and wiser than ever and ready to kickstart the scene. Here is her unique story to fame.
Fabdon began his journey in 2012 in Southside Jamaica, Queen, New York, the birthplace of hip-hop. Several popular hip-hop artists were exploding onto the scene at the time, but Fabdon managed to stand out with his unique take on the genre and distinct style. He quickly began to gain recognition in the music scene, with several established professionals seeing his potential.
Fabdon’s career began to skyrocket in the New York hip-hop industry. It went on for a few years and Fabdon landed a unique opportunity to sign with DJ self for a deal with Power 105.1 radio. Just when Fabdon thought his career would reach new heights, he ended up hitting rock bottom after being wrongfully charged in a criminal trial. Fabdon managed to come out of the trial clean and was released in 2016. In the meantime, DJ Self got one of Fabdon’s contemporary rappers, who was also Fabdon’s longtime rival, to sign the deal.
This loss of opportunity did not bother Fabdon much because he was confident in his talent. He was ready to pick up where he left off, but sadly, at the same time, Fabdon faced another trial for fraud, and this time he ended up in prison for three years. During this abrupt break with his career, Fabdon understood that he had to take the reins of his career on his own after his release from prison.
Since then, Fabdon began honing his skills in prison. He was reading books, spending more time with his mother, and striving to be wiser and better at his craft. He wanted to refrain from making the same mistakes he had initially made as a newbie in the industry who lacked experience in space navigation. Following his early 2020 exit, Fabdon knew he was going to return to the music scene with a vengeance. However, this time too, his luck did not favor him.
Upon his release from prison, Fabdon had to deal with the restrictions imposed due to the onset of the pandemic. Even in such difficult circumstances, Fabdon managed to shine. He signed a deal with DJ Self the second week of his release and appeared on Power 105. By week three he was freestyling with King of Brooklyn. Fabdon has more to offer the industry, so he made his long-awaited dream of starting a record label a reality.
Currently, Fabdon owns TDF (The Don Familia), a new record label that intends to introduce more budding talent into the industry. Apart from that, Fabdon has more exciting plans for the future, and this time he is ready to fulfill them.
