I recently discovered this 2010 EP released by McFabulous, the alter-ego of a certain Chicago-based producer and Oberlin alum. Now, don’t get me wrong, I had heard of McFabulous before. He’s practically a legend. But he’s allusive. I once stumbled into a few s(l)ick beats labeled “McFabulous” floating around the iTunes library of an iMac in an internet cafe in Teaneck, NJ sometime in 2008. But there was no way to tell if those were ginuwine or not. So, it was to my surprise and amazement to find this gem surfing the internet just this year.
If you’re not already sold on McFabulous based on the cover art then I suggest you just walk away right now. It only gets better. Really, you just gotta listen to “Hobby Shop.” Beware, you might have to listen on repeat.
