Normally when referencing a “Fat Tony”, you’d think the next sentence would have to do with an extra caloric sub sandwich, or a fat ass pizza. I assure you, this is not the case here. In fact, you won’t gain a single LB from listening to these mesmerizing beats and flows. Fat Tony brings us Hood Party, the first single off of his upcoming LP Smart Ass Black Boy. While this beat is calorie free, the references to the “Cha Cha Slide” and Drake’s hook from “I’m on One” might have your gut busting either way. Comical genius. The Houston rapper’s real name is Anthony Obi, and he’s originally from Nigerian decent. These fresh beats come to you courtesy of the co-producer on this track Tom Cruz.
