Caught That? Fabolous's Tribute to Aaliyah on the VMAs Carpet Was Dope

He misses her as much as we do.

Fabolous is a New York legend, and it’s not just for his skills on the mic.

The Brooklyn rapper was in attendance at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards and his outfit had a lot of people talking.

Mi$tro, a friend of Fab’s, posted a pic of his 'fit which showed him donning an Aaliyah jersey with her name on the back, the number 19 and an MTV logo above the number. It’s the same jersey the singer wore years ago and it’s so close to the original, it may even be the real thing.

Bravo, Fab.

The 15-year anniversary of Aaliyah’s death was last Thursday. She passed away in 2001 in a plane accident, leaving the music world shocked and severely saddened.
