Afropunk has premiered Fat Tony’s latest single ‘Magnifique’ – a track from his upcoming album with producer Taydex called Wake Up out February 7th.
“Magnifique” is a bouncy groove about organizing a going-away party. I relocated from Los Angeles to Brooklyn in the summer of 2019 while working on Wake Up. My girlfriend and I threw a small party for ourselves that went swimmingly, but this song is about a party that gets out of hand. The dinner party in this song features friends fighting in your home, ashing on the floor, and more. Ultimately, you’re glad they came over, but you’re even happier you won’t be throwing a party like this anytime soon! The beat has that classic ~100 BPM Bay Area bounce. I always feel at home on a track like this.” – Fat Tony

Wait no longer! The new music video for Heaven The Dude’s latest track “Waiting For A Check” feat. Fat Tony & Dent May is out NOW!
Heaven The Dude, Dent May, and Fat Tony are back with a video, directed by JAH, for their collaborative single “Waiting For A Check”; a self-proclaimed slacker anthem for the freelancers of the world. The new music video is shot in the style of a ’90s sitcom title sequence and goes through the woeful, and often humorous, moments when awaiting some extra cash.

We’re honored to welcome Fat Tony to the Carpark family! The razor-tongued rapper’s fifth studio album, Wake Up–a collaboration with producer Taydex–is due February 7, 2020, and will be his first with Carpark Records.
Building on the momentum he has made in the few years since moving away from his hometown of Houston, TX, and inspired by quietly groundbreaking rap records like De La Soul’s Buhloone Mindstate and Ghostface Killah’s Supreme Clientele, Wake Up shows Fat Tony widening the scope of his storytelling while maintaining his light-hearted and self-reflective demeanor. Taydex’s instrumentals provide a colorful and turbulent backdrop to Fat Tony’s anecdotal and satirical verses.
The record’s first single, “Godly,” features vocals from Atlanta experimentalist Negashi Armada, and is saturated in the candid confidence that has carried Fat Tony through his tenure in underground Hip Hop. Listen to “Godly” on Okayplayer now, or from the streaming service of your choice.
Pre-order Wake Up on neon-yellow vinyl from the Carpark shop here, and see Fat Tony on the road with Black Midi this November!
