VICE Premiere: "Hood Party" by Fat Tony
Mar 7 2013
We love Fat Tony, and we also love that he has a new album coming out on Young One Records this summer, on June 11 to be exact. Because he loves us back, he gave us the exclusive premiere of "Hood Party" off of the album.
Here's what Tony has to say about the album:
"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 the Third Ward, Houston, Texas."
