Over the course of more than a half-dozen LPs, and countless other short-form gems and collaborations with everyone from Das Racist to Bun B, Fat Tony has reimagined and blurred the boundaries of hip-hop. There’s a spirit of creative restlessness and intelligence that runs through his deep discography. He is a national treasure, ask around and you'll realize that everyone in their right mind likes Fat Tony. He is the Whataburger of rappers: if you know you know.
This fall, Fat Tony releases Exotica on Carpark Records. It heralds his most visionary work yet, an ode to the art of storytelling through music. A rich and compact iteration of rap short fiction that firmly establishes him as his own one-man genre, the preeminent post-modern griot shooting game.
