Fabolous meets a young lady that sparks his interest and wants to take her to Los Angeles with him. While she was reluctant at first, she agrees and that is the start of their summertime romance. Throughout their relationship, he takes her on expensive shopping trips and dates; he shows her what it’s like to be with a “Real One.” As their romance progresses, they become each other’s “Motivation,” which seems to make their relationship easier. Things start to dim a little when he stops answering her phone calls and spending time with her because he’s “Trap Royalty.” The mixtape takes an even darker turn towards the end when Fabolous finds out his girl has been “violated” by some street dudes.
Most Fabolous fans are still holding out hope for a fourth installment in The S.O.U.L. Tape series but Summertime Shootout does not disappoint. With catchy songs and an interesting storyline, this tape captivates listeners attention in a way that some may not expect from Fabolous.
Summertime Shootout is sure to hold fans over until Fabolous releases his seventh studio album The Young OG Project 2 on Christmas day.
