Nigerian-American rapper and entertainer Fat Tony has maintained a creative resilience and unbridled enthusiasm through the past decade of his career.
His musical footprint has left behind a treasure trove of alternative rap, spread across six albums, dozens of singles, and features on tracks by A$AP Rocky and more. Fat Tony’s sense of humor and courage to experiment mirrors the counter-cultural hip-hop artists who’ve inspired him, like De La Soul, Devin the Dude, and DJ Screw. Although he has spent the past few years bouncing back and forth between Los Angeles and New York while hosting shows for VICE and Super Deluxe, the formative rap scene in Houston where he grew up will always feel like home.
Fat Tony spent his childhood in Houston’s historically black and culturally radical neighborhood, the Third Ward. “My mom and my teachers told us that back in the day that the Black Panther’s Houston chapter was in Third Ward and that the Black Panther figure, Carl Hampton, was murdered by the HPD.” Fat Tony recalls. “So I was growing up in an environment where social awareness and Pan-Africanism were always around.” His childhood home was filled with records—country music, King Sunny Adé, and Jimmy Cliff from his father's collection, his mother's classical music, rock, and soul, and his granny's gospel. Then as a teenager, empowered by the internet and his discovery of independent artists like E-40, Bikini Kill, and Bad Brains, he began recording and distributing his own music.
