The "King of New York" hasn't gotten his official crown yet, but Fabolous was given the next best thing this week at a ceremony in Brooklyn: the key to his home borough.
BET reports that Fab was surrounded by family and friends in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden when he was given the big gold key and his name was added to the Celebrity Path with the likes of Jean-Michel Basquiat.
Being honored by your hometown and getting to share that with your family is major. It was Fab's special day, but as usual his adorable son Jonas was the center of attention. Dressed in white and black like his dad and his big brother, the little prince showed that he is a future star who might get a key of his own some day.
Fabolous is not the first rapper to be blessed with the keys to his city. Short of getting a city block named after you (or getting free rent for life), it's one of the highest honors a person can received while they're alive to accept it.
