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.

Fat Tony Houston, Texas

Somewhere between DJ Screw Bad Brains, and De La Soul sits Houston’s native son, Fat Tony.

A singular and experimentally-minded rap artist adept at both traditional regional styles and indie pop, hardcore thrash and melodic candy-painted bangers.

He is punk in the platonic sense of the word: experimental and subversive, but also funny, whimsical, and virtuosic.
