On the follow-up to Ghetto Fabolous, which spawned ubiquitous radio hits like "Young'n (Holla Back)," Fabolous proves once again that he has a flair for infectious club-ready singles. Among the tracks tailored for heavy rotation: "This Is My Party," the bouncing lead single that cleverly plays off the Lesley Gore classic "It's My Party," and "Damn," a slinky Latin-influenced track that benefits from a cooing hook of "Dayyymn." If only Fabolous was equally adept at putting together an entire album. Street Dreams is a little too padded for its own good, and a handful of tracks suffer from all-too-familiar samples that have been used in recent hits by other artists (the Mary J. Blige collaboration "My Life," for example). Luckily for the Brooklyn, N.Y.-based rapper, the appeal of the album's best moments, coupled with its star power, compensate for any shortcomings. Also making appearances are Missy Elliott, Snoop Dogg, Lil' Mo, and Ashanti.—BG
