30 Seconds With Fat Tony

Categories: Inquiring Minds

Do you know anyone that doesn't like Houston's master MC Fat Tony? If you do, they might be a damned lizard person because no hot-blooded human could hate his new album Double Dragon. That album kicks ass like Billy Lee. What could we learn from such a man in 30 seconds? Let's find out!

Rocks Off: What is worst song in the world?

Fat Tony: There are so many terrible songs, it's kinda hard to choose. I try to ignore them all before my head explodes. I can tell you the best song right now for me though is "Paradise" by Future. I listened to it every day on tour last month, just to stay focused and as positive as possible.

We faced some little troubles on the road here and there but I always kept my head up thanks to Future's Pluto album. This song really moves ya boy to tears at times:

I go through hell so I can walk with you
And I been so down on my fuckin' luck
When you're in the street that's how it goes
You go through hell to get to paradise

Straight up. I feel like my educational path in life would've been hella straight if Future was my high school counselor. I might be Fat Tony, Ph.D.

RO: What is the best lyric in the world?

FT: The first verse of "On The Road Again" by Willie Nelson is pretty superb and eternally classic. Another motivational, tear inducing jam of joy that got ya boy on the Kleenex:

On the road again
Just can't wait to get on the road again
The life I love is making music with my friends
And I can't wait to get on the road again
On the road again
Goin' places that I've never been
Seein' things that I may never see again
And I can't wait to get on the road again

Touring is the life I love and my absolute favorite thing about being a musician. Traveling towards the known and the unknown with the friends you love, on a one way trip to pleasing the next Fat Tony fan.

"Duck. Duck. Goose." Just a small part of why you're the coolest. :-)

Nice interview! I really like the best lyric choice and the Van Loc mention, because Tony is right, the lemongrass tofu is on time.
