I'm The Fatboy, a rapper/sketch artist from Greensboro, NC that makes art for those in tune with the human experience. Welcome to my journey.
Here's what I've been up to recently.
Raise a Toast to 2021 with The Fatboy
Recorded, mixed, & mastered at Livewire Studios in Greensboro, NC, "Toast" was written as a "walking into the new year" song. Punchy rhymes delivered by The Fatboy over a smooth rap/soul beat produced by Wister Dice give the listener a braggadocios yet sobering vibe.
The "Toast" cover art is hand drawn and designed by The Fatboy as well, showcasing one of his many other talents and giving this cover a unique, personal touch.
A socially distant and invite only Drunk Zoom Party took place the night of "Toast"'s release, and the official music video shot by Visual Dynasty Productions will be available Jan. 22 on Imthefatboy.com
Baby It's Cold Outside
I linked up with @Tede_Grams on a cold January afternoon for my first photoshoot of 2021! Sporting an orange Leopard print jacket by Fashion Nova Men which was partially unbottoned. Plus being tall is all fun and games until you gotta get low. Still, this was an incredible time and the photos came out AWESOME!

Listen to FALCON HEAVY HERE today!!
Fat & Gristle:
"Gristle" is, simply put, The Fatboy showing off his lyrical chops over a bass heavy composition by Virginia's own J Kuntryboy Beatz. No upbeat melodies, no catchy refrains, just your classic beats n rhymes combo with a new age twist. With punchlines, similes, and cadence abound, "Gristle" is short, punchy, direct, and lyrically engaging while still being sonically appealing overall. "'Gristle' is somewhat removed from some of my recent tracks like "They Lied" and "1993", but leans towards my bread and butter style of lyricism" says The Fatboy.
