He was featured on a slew of Mac Dre's Thizz Nation mixtape compilations and quickly gained prominence for igniting the San Francisco Bay Area Hyphy Movement.[2] With burgeoning national interest in Bay Area hip-hop around 2005 with his single in December Yellow bus shortly followed by the album Yellow Bus in January 2006, F.A.B. became the subject of a major-label bidding war, signing with Atlantic Records that September, under subsidiary, Thizz Entertainment.[3] Howbeit F.A.B., who had deep independent ties with the music business in North Oakland, decided to forgo his major label deal and ventured out to launch his own imprint Faeva Afta Music in 2008.[4]

When F.A.B. boasted of doing "the dummy retarded" in "Super Sic Wit It," he was describing an emerging aesthetic and philosophical ideal evolving within the Rap culture at the time.[6]

F.A.B. garnered worldwide recognition on other fronts as well particularly as a battle rapper.[7]” F.A.B. defeated many MCs in the niche genre, including Clyde Carson of The Team, Jin of Ruff Ryders and Royce Da 5'9 of Slaughterhouse. In October 2011, Mistah F.A.B. was featured in a mobile battle rap game, Battle Rap Stars by Jump Shot Media.[8] In 2015, F.A.B reemerged in the competitive battle rap circuit and went up against Arsonal Da Rebel in the Battle of the Bay 7.[9]

F.A.B. is an accredited multi-platinum songwriter and record producer, who has collaborated with major acts such as Snoop Dogg, Too $hort, E-40, B.o.B, Chris Brown, and Eric Bellinger. He co-wrote and published record charting platinum lead single Headband, off of B.o.B third album Underground Luxury, released in December 2013.[10] F.A.B. went on to co-write, Loyal by Chris Brown, and the single was rewarded 'Best Hip Hop Song of the Year" by the 2014 Soul Train Awards.[11]

F.A.B.'s community activism and philanthropic efforts, have been highly visible throughout the years. Most notably, he hosts and organizes annual Thanksgiving turkey giveaways, backpack and school supply drives, holiday toys event and various charitable events benefiting Cancer and Domestic Violence.
