Brooklyn native Fabolous is one of New York’s living legends and now the city has treated him as such. A special ceremony was held at the Grand Courtroom on March 9 awarding the rapper with the key to Brooklyn. Among those in attendance were close friends Ryan Leslie, Wale and DJ Clue. Swizz Beatz had the honors of presenting Fab with the award. Upon presenting the award, Swizz said:
“Congratulations to my brother Fab for being the secret weapon. I call him the secret weapon. He’s the secret weapon for fashion, the secret weapon for music, the secret weapon for creativity, he’s the secret weapon behind a lot of artists doing what they do today.”
Another BK legend received a tribute at the Barclays Center on Sunday night. Dubbed “Biggie Night,” the Notorious B.I.G. was honored with a special ceremony from the Brooklyn Nets.
