Ghetto Fabolous is the debut studio album by American rapper Fabolous. The album was released on September 11, 2001 the same day the 9/11 attacks occurred coincidentally, and was received critically by mixed views, but was a commercial success. It reached #4 on the U.S. Billboard 200 with 143,180 copies sold and had three singles which were all Rhythmic Top 40 and Billboard Hot 100 hits. The first of those singles is "Can't Deny It", produced by Rick Rock, and features a chorus by Nate Dogg that alters lyrics from Tupac Shakur's "Ambitionz Az a Ridah". It reached #25. The other charting singles are "Young'n (Holla Back)", produced by The Neptunes (#33), and "Trade It All", featuring vocals from Jagged Edge and produced by DJ Clue and DURO. It reached #20, becoming the highest-charting single from the album.

It sold over 1.05 million copies by 2003 as Billboard[6] has reported and it was certified platinum on February 6, 2003, by the RIAA.[7]
