This Fat Tony video is hilarious. DJ Quik once said, “I don’t want to party with you”, and in a lot of rap video instances, that’s truly the case. But I can’t lie, this party looks like way too much fun to ever pass up. Shot with handheld cameras from various ‘hood parties’ on NYE 2012, Houston rapper Fat Tony, the Bay Area’s Kool A.D., Queens based rapper Despot and producer Tom Cruz have a Froogal hang out for the ages.
The second single, ‘Hood Party’ off rising Houston rapper Fat Tony’s Smart Ass Black Boy LP pulls out all of the stops, kicking the things off with the insanely catchy hook, “I’m at the hood party, even white people know it’s a good party”, setting the tone for distorted horn samples and blown out house party speakers to make up the backdrop beats surrounding Tony’s cool and collected brand of storytelling. While Kool A.D. sticks to his recipe of slurry jabs at other rappers, and Definitive Jux-signed Despot drops ferocious lyrical bombs repping Brooklyn like only he can, each lyricist gives viewers a tour of how they are spending the last eve of 2012. But I wasn’t kidding when I said this party was for the ages, for when the clock strikes midnight in New York, things come full circle. Watch the video to see what I mean.
