Who is Fatt Father?
A father, hustler, underground emcee from the east side of Detroit who probably wouldn’t be alive if it wasn’t for music and fatherhood. Those two things saved my life and that’s why I go so hard everyday.
How did you connect with D.R.U.G.S.?
My brother MarvWon actually put me up on D.R.U.G.S. while we were working on some joints for our Twin Towers project. I reached out to D.R.U.G.S., we chopped it up, and the rest is history. I’ve come to the conclusion that God wanted us to work together.
On “Come On,” you invite the listener to walk in your shoes. What do you think separates everyone from your story?
I’ve never denounced or felt ashamed about sharing my story which includes everything from being homeless as a child to watching my brother die from a bullet to the head. That’s what enables me to make living room music; the shit that knocks on your front door and sits on your couch. There’s a bunch of hustler songs but only Fatt Father could make one titled “My Kids Need A Coat” or “Kids At My Mama House.” People can choose not to like my music and that’s cool but people will always respect it and that’s what matters.
Detroit has a very long list of legendary rappers. Who is your favorite and why? How about producers?
Royce Da 5’9″, without a question. He’s always been super dope with the word play and technique. Royce is definitely top five! As far as producers, I would have to say Chanes because of his authentic sound. Chanes has never been afraid to experiment with sounds and that means everything when you call yourself a producer. Recording another project with Chanes is definitely on my list of things that I must do.
