I highly recommend checking out all of Fat Tony's new material, not just today's 12 O'Clock Track, "Rap Babies."
Feeding off a jittery beat, Fat Tony and friends—Negashi Armada, Tom Cruz, and Charly East—fondly recall their hip-hop upbringings and early rap careers, sprinkling their stories with self-deprecating humor. (My favorite line: "Selling CD-Rs to young hoes who believe we're stars / Just to cop a number six from Wendy's on Boulevard.") Fat Tony will hit the Burlington on Wednesday night with Milwaukee party rapper Juiceboxxx; you can get warmed up for the show by listening to "Rap Babies" and the rest of Fat Tony's great 2010 album, Rabdargab, available as a pay-what-you-want download at Bandcamp.
