Mishka NYC: How did you get started rapping and making music?
Fat Tony: I was in middle school. I was walking to my 7th period history class, coming from P.E. I was listening to my walkman, jamming to radio. And they played Cam’Ron “Oh Boy,” you know the classic produced by Just Blaze? It was my first time hearing the song and I was just like mesmerized by it. I ran to my three friends and I was like “We gon be a fuckin rap group! You gon be our manager! You gon be a rapper! You go rap, too and I’m gonna produce!” I went home and I was like “I gotta bring some beats back for these boys!” But, I didn’t know how to make beats at all.
So, what I did is I got on the internet, I went to Soundclick.com and I found some free beats I thought sounded okay. I pulled out my little Radioshack tape recorder, I recorded the shit, I put it on a tape and brought it to school the next day like “Ah man we about to rap to this!” The next grade I got a little more advanced with it. I had a homeboy that had a lot of speakers and mics and stuff. We went out to his house one evening and chilled and recorded. The first two songs I really recorded was on Mobb Deep’s beat for “Win Or Lose” and over a Pete Rock beat. And we sampled that Pimp C line from “Big Pimpin” that line “What you know about them Texas Boys?” I forget what we called the song we made over the “Win Or Lose Beat.” But, it was something very revolutionary and powerful.
