NEW ARTIST & TRACK: Fat Tony “Hood Party” With SXSW Shows.

March 11, 2013


Fat Tony is a Houston based Nigerian-American rap artist known for his wordly, literate, and fun songwriting, as well as his energetic live performances. Winner of the 2010, 2009, & 2008 Houston Press Music Awards’ “Best Underground Hip Hop” award, he’s also known to be a bit of a critical darling. His most recent album and mixtape to date, RABDARGAB and Double Dragon, respectively, were produced entirely by Tom Cruz (Supreeme, Cen’c Love) and feature MURS, Bun B and Main Attrakionz, to name a few. His accessible nature has brought forth collaborations with unexpected artists such as Nick Diamonds (Islands/Mister Heavenly/The Unicorns), OG Ron C, B L A C K I E, Juiceboxxx and more.
Following last summer’s release of Double Dragon, Tony is back today to announce his debut album for Young One Records, due June 11th, along with its first official single. Smart Ass Black Boy sees Tony perfecting the formula he’s been refining over the past couple years, pairing the influence of Houston’s Screw music with the quirkiness of more contemporary artists like Young One labelmates Main Attrakionz. Speaking on the new record, Tony says:

“Me and producer Tom Cruz put our all into this one. We set out to make an album, not just a bunch of aimless rapping and it shows. I’ve been making music since I was a lil teen, learning a lot and becoming a better artist every step of the way. Smart Ass Black Boy is the bridge from my adolescence to who I am now as a man. I touch on gentrification, race relations, romance, growing up a first generation Nigerian-American, and more all while having a hell of a good time. Step into the mind of a young rap god on the rise straight out of 3rd Ward, Check out first single “Hood Party,” which features Kool AD (of the late Das Racist) and under-rated NYC MC Despot linking up with Tony and producer Tom Cruz for a house party thumper. Check out the track below.

    Hello blogger, i found this post on 16 spot in google’s search results.
    I’m sure that your low rankings are caused by high
    bounce rate. This is very important ranking factor.
    One of the biggest reason for high bounce rate is due to visitors hitting the back
    button. The higher your bounce rate the further down the
    search results your posts and pages will end up, so having
    reasonably low bounce rate is important for increasing your rankings naturally.
    There is very useful wp plugin which can help you.
    Just search in google for:
