Brooklyn rapper Fabolous will perform at La Marina in Inwood on Saturday.

Brace yourself, Inwood.

The Brooklyn rapper made mention of the Inwood riverfront restaurant La Marina in his song "Cuffin' Season," saying,

"You was in La Marina all summer."

Fabolous has put popular riverfront restaurant La Marina in one of his rap songs, and the Brooklyn rapper — fresh off a car accident this week in Queens — will perform Saturday at the venue he helped make famous.

The event, which will bring up to 1,500 fans to the club’s man-made riverfront beach, will also give La Marina an opportunity to prove it has made good on its owners’ promise to control the noise.

La Marina has served as a frequent flashpoint in the conflict between business owners in the burgeoning entertainment district and the residents who complain they’ve been beseiged by the accompanying traffic and noise.

The summertime hotspot has attracted the likes of Jay Z, Beyonce and Leonardo DiCaprio since it opened in 2012, but last year the city cracked down, ordering La Marina to end its season early and call off an album release party for rapper Drake.

“Are we working with the police? Absolutely,” said Fernando Mateo, a co-owner of the hotspot at the end of Dyckman St. “All we’re trying to do is comply and do what’s necessary.”

The Parks Department confirmed that La Marina promised to end the concert at 10 p.m. and close the venue at 1 a.m., said spokesman Philip Abramson, noting the restaurant has a capacity of 500 people and 1,500 for the beach.

Tickets for Saturday’s performance are going for $50 in advance, if you can find them. Some promoters have already sold out.

On Wednesday, the rapper tweeted that he escaped a car accident on the Van Wyck Expressway with only minor injuries.

“I wanna Thank God for not only letting me walk away with a few bumps & bruises,” he tweeted.
