Hip-hop veteran Fabolous is known for his real talk and catchy punch lines that flow through your speakers every time he drops a project. Aside from that, Fab is also known for his signature style. Whether he is rocking a vintage jersey or draped in a large fur with a unique styled sneaker on his feet. The man marries his Brooklyn-bred swag, high fashion elements, and contemporary street style to take his dress game to a different level.

Being 5’11 Fab is definitely a pioneer in the world of men’s street style for tall men. We often forget that with the help of his amazing stylist, Emily B, he started experimenting with different designers long before it became on-trend to do so. Well, we here at EGL would like to acknowledge the F-A-B-O-L-O-U-S fly that caught our eye! Here are 10 of Fab’s fly-est moments so far in 2016.
