Pain: 3/5
Wolves In Sheep: 3.5/5
Really Tho: 3.5/5
That’s Not Love: 3.75/5
Leaving You: 3.5/5
In The Morning: 3/5 (the latina girl has a sexy voice, that’s pretty much the only redeeming quality about Fab’s version of this song)

*BONUS You Be Killin Em Pt 2: 3.75/5

     This tape does nothing for me. I came into this mixtape like I try to come into every album/mixtape – with no expectations. It makes for a more fair review. After listening to this piece, I don’t think any more or less of Fabolous as a rapper, and while that’s not necessarily a bad thing, it’s definitely not good either. He’s not re-inventing himself. He’s not progressing as an artist.

On The Soul Tape, Fab seems complacent where he’s at as a hit-or-miss punchline rapper. This is not a bad release by any means, but I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone looking for new Fabolous’ music. It’s just incredibly complacent. And to me, that’s not good enough. This is an extremely subjective review, but maybe it’s necessary for a rapper who’s been trying the same formula for a decade now.

VERDICT

3.5/5 Don’t get me wrong, it’s not bad…but it isn’t impressive in the slightest either.
