After signing Fabolous as the inaugural artist on his Desert Storm imprint, New York mix-tape king DJ Clue teams the Brooklyn, N.Y.-bred lyrical hotshot with West Coast crooner Nate Dogg on "Can't Deny It" to appeal to listeners on both coasts. The straightforward flow from Fabolous, matched with Nate Dogg's smooth vocals, create an undeniably catchy song that works with the current winning hip-hop/R&B formula that pervades the airwaves these days. Saturated in lyrical braggadocio, "Can't Deny It" speaks to Fabolous' talent and tries to prove that the young rapper lives up to his name. Guided by an interpolation of the Tupac Shakur song "Ambitionz As a Ridah," the club-oriented beat provided by producer Rick Rock should prove to be a radio favorite, as well as a club anthem to further heat up the season. Look for the release of Ghetto Fabolous in the fall.—CF
