Smart Ass: An Evening with Fat Tony

Photo by Jessica Lehrman

Fat Tony stands at the forefront of a new generation of young rappers who forge their own path — a DIY hustler who's built his burgeoning career on a foundation of equal parts smarts and swagger. The Houston MC owns the microphone with a casual confidence, workmanlike in his delivery, whether laid back or lyrical. He describes himself as a new brand of enlightened Southern that's as likely to lean back on your front porch as to sit down and school you on Dadaism.

"Smart Ass: An Evening with Fat Tony" features a presentation in which the artist will discuss his musical upbringing and the influences that continue to shape his career. Following, Fat Tony will perform a lyrical set, allowing the audience to hear how those influences show up in his work today.
