    Fabolous has released Summertime Shootout 3: Coldest Summer Ever, the final installment of his Summertime Shootout mixtape series.

    For the ambitious 16-track project, the Brooklyn veteran enlisted hip hop heavy-hitters such as Meek Mill, Gucci Mane, Lil Durk, A Boogie wit da Hoodie, Tory Lanez and 2 Chainz. The tape also features contributions from R&B singers Jacquees, Jeremih, Ty Dolla $ign and Teyana Taylor.

    “[The Summertime Shootout series is] a blend of music that is meant to play like a playlist. That’s what I think mixtapes have really transitioned into,” Fabolous recently told Music Choice. “The start of the series was a little different, but now here we are in 2019 and just looking at where things are and how the music is being digested, I just wanted to—not change the music in any kind of way—but know how the music is being digested and give you music in that form.”

    Summertime Shootout 3: Coldest Summer Ever is Fabolous’ first solo release since Summertime Shootout 2: The Level Up in 2016. He previously teamed up with Jadakiss on the joint album Friday on Elm Street back in 2017.
