Fabo (US rapper, now known as "2$ Fabo")
Lefabian Williams (born November 30, 1983), better known by his stage name Fabo, is an American rapper, producer, songwriter and former frontman of the snap music group D4L. Fabo is currently signed to Atlantic Records, and has gone solo. Fader called Fabo "an unquestioned living legend for certain segments of the rap community" and said that "Young Thug even paid tribute in his breakout 'Stoner.'"
D4L's breakout song Laffy Taffy dethroned Mariah Carey's "Don't Forget About Us" to claim the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. "Laffy Taffy" made Nielsen SoundScan history with digital download sales of over 175,000 copies, marking a new one-week high for sales of a single track. This achievement smashes the previous record set by Kanye West's "Gold Digger," more than doubling the latter's one-week sales figure of 80,500. D4L earned recognition by the RIAA for highest certified master ringtone honors, going 3x multi-platinum for their song, Laffy Taffy.
In November 2013, Complex (magazine) named D4L with the likes of industry greats Eminem, Lil Wayne, and Timbaland as one of The 10 Major Influences on Today's Rap Sound. The magazine credits D4L for influence on current California production style as well as the obvious "ringtone" rap, pop rap and dance-style rap music. Complex goes on to say, "And no doubt group member, Fabo, a true star, was influential, particularly in the South."
After a brief hiatus from the music scene, Fabo, who now goes by the stage name 2$ Fabo, returned in 2013 with a new single called "Catch Me on That Molly," which was produced by King Dominus. In 2014, 2$ Fabo released the well-received We Amongst U, which Stereogum called their mixtape of the week and "a hell of a good time." Additionally, Fader called "We Amongst U" the "most fun mixtape of 2014." It goes on to describe the song "Krazy Bout That Money," as being "nothing short of ecstatic, a twinkling, Nard & B-reminiscent production over which Fabo delivers the most impassioned love letter to cash I've ever heard. It feels like hearing "The World's Greatest" for the first time.
