Widely recognized as a core-member of the Detroit Hiphop collective 'Fat Killahz', Fatt Father (born Shabazz Ford) has built a strong fan base via his work with the group, coupled with his own array of mixtapes and street projects ranging from the classic 'Tales of the Childless Father' to 'Father's Day' on to the well-crafted 'You are the Father' and 'Fatherly Advice'; all of which garnered Fatt Father a lot of support and praise within the underground Hiphop community.

'Guess Who's Coming To Dinner?', Fat Killahz debut album, paved the way for Fatt Father - along with his group - to share the stage with such hip-hop royalty as Ice Cube, 50 Cent, Method Man & Redman as well as Detroit's own Royce Da 5'9", Nolan The Ninja, Danny Brown, Slum Village, D12 and
Trick Trick to name but a few. 

His debut self-titled album - executive produced by himself alongside Trick Trick 
enabled Fatt Father to be recognized as a lyrical force even without his loyal comrades. Over the years Fatt Father has released soul touching music such as the unforgettable 'My Kids Need A Coat' which not only showcased his lyrical skill but also shined a light on his loyalty to his children. It was his sophomore album, 'Fatherhood', that solidified his figurative and literal place as a Hiphop heavy-weight. In 2016, Fatt Father released his third studio album, 'Veterans Day', alongside grammy nominated producer D.R.U.G.S. Beats.

Fatt Father has also collaborated on records with lyrical all-stars such as Quelle Chris, Kuniva, Denmark Vessey, Sean Price, Guilty Simpson, Black Milk, Bishop Lamont, Roc Marciano, Ro Spit, Elzhi, and more... Fatt Father's consistent grind and devotion to his craft has led him to transcend locally and work with numerous artists around the globe.

All the while Fatt Father has been in the kitchen, 
warming up the deep fryer, getting ready to serve his next course for hungry listeners and starved Hip-Hop heads the world over. Get a plate, because if you have been in search of some real Hip Hop, congratulations...
