Fabolous received the key to his native Brooklyn over the weekend in an official ceremony at Brooklyn Botanic Garden. The “Breathe” rapper was awarded the key itself along with artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, who was honored posthumously.
A photo from Fab’s Triangle Offense crewmate Paul Cain shows the artist with a smile on his face as he holds the ceremonious key. The message to Fab read: “Brooklyn Honored My Brother Today. He Was Given The Key 2 The City. He Came From The Projects, He Came From Nothing, He Came From The Bottom! 2 All The Youth, Let This Be Your Motivation. You Can Be SuccessFul 2, Just Work Hard & Stay Focused! 2 Say I’m Proud Is An Understatement!! I Love You Bro, Keep Winning!”
