Fat Tony Honors Houston With New Album 'MacGregor Park'
The eight-song project is the latest release from the Houston, Texas rapper.
Fat Tony‘s MacGregor Park has been in the making since 2014 and features production from Calvin Valentine (De La Soul, Nas, Bun B), Rogét Chahayed (co-producer of Lil Yachty‘s “Broccoli”), and others.
The album takes its name from a childhood park in Fat Tony’s hometown neighborhood of Third Ward in Houston.
“In 2014, I read the book Hip Hop in Houston: The Origin and the Legacy by Maco L. Faniel,” Tony said. “(I) learned the very first rap single ever released in Houston was named ‘MacGregor Park.’ That’s when I knew what to call this album.”
In 2015, he released a music video for the title track, which includes a cameo from Bun B.
The artist will also be embarking on a tour in support of MacGregor Park in September, alongside fellow rapper Flaco. Tour dates are listed below, as well as a stream of the album.
