Fat Pockets ‘Phat Tape’

Press Release

Funkwig and DJ Snair team up as Fat Pockets and deliver the “Butterthief Phat Tape”

The “Phat Tape” is a 24 minute CD, featuring all original production by Funkwig and cuts by DJ Snair with new exclusive music by Social Change, Dialect, K21, Crossbred Mongrels & Chris Bass plus special guests 2Biz and Mesha.

Starting out like a dusty beat tape packed with vocal samples, the Phat Tape winds it’s way thru various instrumentals and skits until reaching track 5 “Da Ultimate” on which Dialect and Social Change both bless the mic. This is followed by another collaboration “Flava” with K21 and Social Change sharing the funky beat, both tracks featuring straight lyricism, no hooks and songs here.

Then the Phat Tape finally arrives at a new exclusive full length Social Change song in “Step” on which Social Change flips lyrics like “Coming correct with this / Microphone Checking this / Specialists / Effective at making it look Effortless.”

“Step” is followed by a quick word from 2Biz of the almighty Crackhouse family (Mindfield, Sukatash, Common Cause) before heading into an exclusive “Crossbred Mongrels” track produced by Chris Bass with cuts by DJ Snair. This track was left off the recent Crossbred album but with Chris Bass smashing the beat and Snair going crazy on the cuts, it finds it’s home perfectly on the Phat Tape.

After a quick shout out from Mesha and DJ Snair from Taylor Made Tactix the Phat Tape finishes up with another exclusive full length Social Change track “Forever”.

The Phat Tape CD pressing also includes bonus Social Change track “REAL”.
