2012 brings Fatz into a new dimension of his music career, his first all original mixtape “Heart of a King” includes exclusive features by Wale and Black Cobain. Fatz is no stranger in his hometown of D.C. nor to the big stage, he featured prominently in Wale’s Ambition tour.

Not only does he command the crowd by his physical presence, the deadly delivery of his lyrical missiles keeps the crowd leaning forward in anticipation of his next verbal assault surrounded by massive signature tracks.
The Board Administration and partner company Overdose Entertainment have created an organization where artists are encouraged to extend their talents and are given free reign over their creativity, which proved to be a perfect fit for the versatile Fatz.
