Carpark Welcomes Fat Tony! ‘Wake Up’ out February 7th + listen to “Godly” now!

October 11, 2019 4:52 pm

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 Taydexis 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 ClienteleWake 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!
