Bio

Joey Fattz has been a mainstay in the Pittsburgh Hip Hop scene for quite awhile now. Winning 2014's "Best Mixtape" for his latest project, Bazooka Joe and "Best Performance" with his side group, the Grimey Click, at the Pittsburgh Hip Hop Underground Music Awards, Joey has left a lasting impact on the city. After releasing seven projects, coming up with Producers Big Jerm and E Dan from ID Labs, Joey has been exposed to and inspired by some of the best music Pittsburgh has to offer. E Dan and Big Jerm produce for the likes of Wiz Khalifa, Mac Miller, other Taylor Gang members and some of the best talent in the music industry. Joey has been longtime friends with up and coming Taylor Gang producer, Ricky P of Premier Pittsburgh Recording Studios. Now that Ricky is making moves and touring with Wiz Khalifa himself, it's crystal clear Joey Fattz has in his arsenal some of the best production in the music industry.

    Fattz came up with, recording at ID Labs, both Mac and Wiz. More experiences, influences to assist him in developing his own unique skill set which has set him apart from his competitors. Fattz has become a seasoned spitter, performer and his on the spot freestyles have proved to be just as potent as his carefully thought out bars. Joey rhymes about the realities of his present life, the status of the world as he sees it through his own unique perspective. His music brings you back to the roots, back to the struggle, to the grittiness/griminess and the deep, soul clenching struggle from which hip hop was truly born. Joey Fattz is taking it back to the Big Pun, the Method Man, Onyx, Dungeon Family, A.Z., Cormega and the REAL Hip Hop artists who haven’t sold out to sell a million records. Joey’s incredible genius is his ability to tell HIS own unique story, as rough as it has been at times, in a way to appeal to and engross the masses. Fattz has very loyal, die-hard fans who want nothing more then to see him succeed. Joey Fattz truly has that "It" factor, where people are drawn to his charismatic persona just to watch what he will do next. Adding the ever-growing, continuously evolving status of his music and lyrical abilities creates a combination that is undeniably a forceful movement with supporters from all walks of life.  

    The unprecedented, overwhelming response Joey has received from his last project release, Bazooka Joe, has made him even hungrier and more determined then ever. Joey's notoriety has reached all the way across the pond to the U.K. ITCH FM's DJ Thad Boogie said about Joey, "This kid is the real deal," and, "How are people like Trinidad James on the radio and Joey Fattz isn't?" Another ITCH FM DJ, DJ Myme, cosigns Joey with this statement, "Emcees aren't made, they are born, Joey Fattz is the epitome of this. Like all the greats who have gone before him, Joey has the rare ability to be able to paint a vivid picture using only his words. Putting you in the streets with him, taking you on a lyrical journey through raw, rough and rugged Hip Hop. He incorporates lyrical wordplay that hits harder then a shot of Vodka in the eye. Listening to Joey Fattz is like watching a Martian Scorsese motion picture, relentless, uncompromising and thought provoking. Joey Fattz is, without a doubt, a bright star and the undisputed future of Hip Hop." 

   Fattz has been cosigned by WAMO 100.1 FM, Pittsburgh's only Hip Hop/Urban radio station, Deejays Ray Love and Mike Jax who both called Bazooka Joe, "Rugged, from start to finish.” Legendary Pittsburgh DJ Nick Nice was so impressed he brought Joey aboard his own team with no hesitation. Joey Fattz's manager, Joanna IIC and his recent union with Nick, has proved to be the winning combination to push his music into every new market and set of ears they can collectively pull together. It's success has been so incredible, Joey is now working on the second installment, Bazooka Joe 1.5 and will be releasing Bazooka Joe 2 shortly there after. 1.5 features Taylor Gang members Chevy Woods and Tuki Carter among others. Producers Big Jerm, Ricky P and Domingo have inspired Joey to raise the bar, creating his best work to date on this second installment of the series. Bazooka Joe 1.5 will be released in the Fall of 2014. 

    Recently Joey began recording a project with production exclusively from the legendary, Domingo! Domingo Presents Joey Fattz, highlights features from KRS-1, Kool G Rap and Chris Rivers to name a few. It will be available shortly after Bazooka Joe 1.5. Domingo was Grammy award nominated for his work with Big Pun, has an discography that is extremely impressive and creates classic, hard-hitting beats that have brought out all of Joey's musical strengths. Fattz will be dropping three projects in 6 months and with his own tour, Joey is embarking on the ride of a lifetime! Don't take your eyes and ears off of this star in the making....
