This is a cool piece put together for Fat Tony. Tony was one of the first artists we worked with from outside of ATL and he embodies the grind and love for hip-hop that I wish every artist had. Check out the video.

New Chopped & Screwed Ish from the homie Fat Tony of houston…
Fresh off the fall 2010 release of his Tom Cruz produced debut album RABDARGAB, which featured fire ass rapping and beats that felt like smoking 3 blunts, drinking a fo’ of lean, popping some adderall and going to the hood skating rink for Tasha’s sweet 16 in the year 2222 comes Fat Tony’s SCREWDARGAB.
SCREWDARGAB is chopped-up, not slopped-up by Houston legend and co-founder of Swishahouse OG Ron C, famous for boosting the careers of Chamillionaire, Paul Wall, Mikes Jones, and more. Fat Tony, a Houston native, continues the legacy of a hometown experimental rap music technique pioneered by DJ Screw with this March 24, 2011 remix album release.
Fat Tony, who “raps like a nigga that read a book before but a nigga nonetheless,” gets his fire ass rapping brought to a slow creep like a drunkard slowly peepin a fine ass female, and chopped up to a stutter like the same nigga nervously trying to holla at her. His accomplices Murs, Tom Cruz, Bo P, Negashi Armada, Charly East, and Kam Franklin all receive the same reduction on their vocal features.
A three-time winner of the Houston Press Music Awards’ Best Underground Hip Hop award (2008, 2009, 2010) and URB magazine Next 1000 alumni, Fat Tony’s teaming with OG Ron C certifies his debut RABDARGAB as a classic record delivered by the unique perspective of a first generation Nigerian-American raised in the South and overall live dude.

RABDARGAB: THE EPREVIEW is available as a free download from fattonyrap.com presented by Scott on the Rocks, Sucker Punch Clothing, and Houston based college radio station KTRU. The mixtape features appearances and collaborations with Das Racist, Hudson Mohawke, Fonda of Team Facelift, Tom Cruz, Jade <3, Tecla, and more as well as drop ins from Murs, Juiceboxxx, Nick Diamonds of Islands, Speak!, VerBs, and more dropping in to show their support.
The title RABDARGAB is a reference to a late ’90s Houston Independent School District campaign that offered elementary school students $1 in exchange for book reports in an effort to promote literacy (“Read a Book, Do A Report, Get a Buck”). Though, Fat Tony has jokingly referred to the title as an acronym for “Roll a blunt, Drink a Red Stripe, Get a b*tch.”
