He was presented with the Key To Brooklyn, the borough’s most prestigious award, by Borough President Eric L. Adams.
Adams also inducted Fabolous into the Celebrity Path on the property of the recognizable Brooklyn Botanic Garden.
A marker displaying Fabolos’ name, John David Jackson, will be there along with others on the Brooklyn Celebrity Path which is visited by thousands of tourists from all over the world.
Fabolous has done things for New York, like teaming up with Baron Davis, to raise over $30,000 for kids at a New York City Toy Drive.
“I feel honored to be inducted into Brooklyn’s own Celebrity Path and receive a key to the city in June…I am grateful to be recognized by my hometown for my contributions and to receive the borough’s highest honors,” Fabolous said.
The rapper will be honored over the Summer, at the Central Brooklyn Arts and Culture Weekend on Sunday, June 11.
