Lituation

Album: The Young OG Project (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • The first single from The Young OG Project is a street track named after a term that will be new to many. "This is a word that I've been hearing floating around and I thought, why not make a song out of it?' It's really about a situation that can get lit," Fabolous explained to MTV News.

    "You can come into a situation and it can be [calm] and you can turn it up and get it a little lit," he added. "It's a very aggressive New York street record and I wanted to start with that just to get the feel, and get you there first, [then] the rest of the album will take you different places."
  • The song's music video was directed by Gerald Victor, who has also worked with Wiz Khalifa, Black Milk and Royce Da 5'9 and was shot in the rapper's native Brooklyn. The clip was inspired by the 1990 film King of New York and finds Fabolous channelling Christopher Walken's ruthless mob boss character Frank White.
