Mistah Fab, T-Pain, and the Cataracs Conspire for a Pop Breakthrough with "City Nights"

Categories: MP3 of the Day

T-Pain and Mistah Fab
​Here's another maverick move from Oakland's Mistah Fab. It's called "City Nights," and it's a radio-friendly pop rave up featuring the Auto-Tuned likes of T-Pain and production by the Cataracs (whom you may know from last summer's "Like a G6").

Here Fab ditches the two personas he's worn most often through this year's mixtapes -- grim realist and high-rolling hustler -- and becomes a full-on party boy, rhyming about getting down in various cities around the world with T-Pain as his wingman. It's not like anything we've heard from the hyphy prince recently, and we could easily picture it playing on everyone's car stereo for the rest of this agonizingly warm summer.

Just wait 'til you get to the part where Fab yells, "I love the Bay! I love L.A.! Let's spread that real Cali love all day!" You will ask: Is this the same Mistah Fab?

And yes, yes it is. He's been warning people all day on Twitter:

This is a radio pop record I'm trying to take it world wide With this one I ain't pushed a radio record n years
