Five Questions with North Carolina’s FattSosa
North Carolina is not short on talent it’s just been slept on until the likes of Luke Nasty and Producer 20 hit the national radar, and now we get to add FattSosa to the growing movement out of the region. An impressive ambassador for the culture, FattSosa just released his anticipated debut EP “Zone 10” with the lead single “Selling Dope” featuring Moneybagg Yo gaining major props from around the industry including catching a “first alert” tag from Sirius XM radio. Not bad for newcomer!!!
The project is a straight ride through, no skips, which speaks FattSosas dedication to making music with a vibe that draws you all the way in.
The Hype Magazine got the young lion to weigh in on a few things regarding his debut project and what it means for him in the grand scheme of things. He’s quite thoughtful and aware of where he wants to go and what music means to him. Check it!
Tell us about your current project and what it means for you!
This is my debut EP that I have dropped consisting of 6 songs and features with some of the artists I rock with the most. Luke Nasty is doing his thing in my home state of North Carolina so that was only right to get him on the project, and then I got QC’s newest artist Kollision on there pairing him up with Block 125, and finally Moneybagg Yo on the lead single “Dope.” This project took me about 30-days to make and I’m glad that everyone gets to finally hear it, it’s bittersweet like when I watched my daughter take her first steps.
Do you feel your current project is the best introduction to you as an artist?
My debut project shows my versatility in blending Trap and R&B elements seamlessly, so it definitely feels as I left a great first impression to a lot of fans. I’ve been able to witness this on IG the most because Sirius XM made the single “Dope” featuring Moneybagg Yo a first alert. So I’ve been getting a lot of DM’s from fans rocking to the song so that always feels good. It feels like a great accomplishment because it’s hard to win over fans, especially as a new artist.
What is the music landscape in your neck of the woods?
No shots to anyone, but there’s just a lack of originality and substance in the current music landscape, especially in my neck of the woods.
What brought you to music and what do YOU get out of it?
What originally drove me to music was singing in my church as part of the choir, and I had a great family support system with it because of a lot of my fam sang in church as well. It’s exciting to take that talent into the studio and create something unique out of nothing and deliver it to the world to hear. Especially when I’m performing in these clubs and everyone in attendance is singing word for word what you wrote, there’s nothing like it.
The Hype Magazine wants to know: What’s been your CRAZIEST “Where they do that at?! Or “WTF?!” moment thus far in your career?
My where they do that at is when I see rappers with fake jewelry and fake designer rapping about real shit and then everything they have on is fake. My craziest moment was definitely opening up for Gucci Mane after we performed he sent over his manager to my brother. His manager was like “Guwop wants to do a song with your brother.” I can’t wait for the world to hear that one, it’ll be dropping soon!
Well, there it is there!!!
