Fatlip - What’s Up Fatlip?

Fatlip is a former member of the hip-hop group The PharcydeWhat’s up Fatlip? is my favorite song off of Fatlip’s first and only solo album The Loneliest Punk.  Apparently he’s working on a second solo album, but it’s been almost 8 years since he released The Loneliest Punk, so he’s obviously taking his time. 

When I first heard this song I immediately fell in love with it. I couldn’t stop listening to it for a really long time.  It’s a true underground classic. Fatlip has had a unique career with many ups and downs, and this song is a tribute to the distinctly low points in his life. The Music Video is pretty damn amusing as well. Also, as a random side note, he was the rapper featured on The Chemical Brothers’s cult dance classic The Salmon Dance.
