Last Friday, Fabolous was given the key to Brooklyn. He was honored at a ceremony at the Grand Courtroom in Brooklyn’s Borough Hall where he also received the Icon Award from Icon Talks founders John Hartsfield and Sharon Carpenter.

Among those attending the event were friends DJ Clue, Ryan Leslie, Wale and Swizz Beatz, who presented Fab with his honors:

“He’s the secret weapon for fashion, the secret weapon for music, the secret weapon for creativity,” Swizz said. “He’s the secret weapon behind a lot of artists doing what they do today.”
