When I started I had trouble picking a rap name bcuz My hood nickname didnt seem like a “rapper name” & my 1st initial which i used alot couldnt work bcuz of another well known “Jay” from Brooklyn. Bcuz of my wordplay, my moniker was “The Fabolous Vocabulist”.. I met DJ Clue at Hot 97 & spit for him. In the rap, the moniker was dropped. From there he went on to call me Fabolous & also Fabolous Sport. (Sport was my hood nickname) It gained popularity quick while I sat back & watched a mistake become my name. So today I look at the irony of taking a mistake and making it look correct. Moral of the story is every mistake, somethin can be taken from it, learned from it or made from it. My mistake made me FABOLOUS

Happy Mother’s Day to my first LOVE, my mother Deborah Jackson-Cain. As I had dinner with her tonight & she told me stories of how she worked Christmas holiday jobs at Barney’s New York so she would have extra money to buy me & brother what we wanted for Christmas OR when I had hoop dreams and she saw me practicing jumpshots by myself & the ball would bounce away from me & she came to the court so she could throw the ball back to me OR when I got locked up and she put all she had to bail me out bcuz she wouldn’t be able to stop thinking about me spending a night in jail, I realized this woman has been there for me my whole life and there’s no one else I can say that about. She is my leader and I genuinely & unconditionally love her. Happy Mothers Day to all the mothers who have sacrificed & done all they could do & beyond for there children. Mothers are our leaders, and even tho they deserve more than a day of recognition I hope y’all took time to honor your mothers today #YoungDeborahAt16YrsOld
