VIDEO PREMIERE: FAT TONY “SWERVIN'” + 2 (LIVE)
Rapper Fat Tony came from Houston but now lives in L.A., and here he’s doing a live video set for local videographers Tony and Gabe, who’ve done similar sessions with Shannon Lay and Color TV. Now with a little added presence from a fluorescent monster, Fat Tony turns in especially charismatic takes on “Swervin'” and “Drive Thru” (from last year’s MacGregor Park album) and finishes with a special exclusive nine-minute surprise megamix that is well worth your total commitment. (“We’d never met but Fat Tony told me ‘he’d do anything for someone named Tony,'” says videographer Tony.) The finale is dedicated to California and New York, and if you’re thinking that maybe there’s a certain Ramones song that might fit that spirit … then this is the video for you. Fat Tony’s new collab Charge It To The Game (with Kyle Mabson) put out their debut LP last month, and Fat Tony plays this Thursday, May 17, at the Highland Park Ebell with Together Pangea, Small Wigs and French Vanilla.
