|The Fat Killahz|
|Also known as||
|Origin||Detroit, Michigan, U.S.|
The Fat Killahz is a hip-hop collective from Detroit, Michigan, US. It's made up of four imposing emcees: Fatt Father, Bang Belushi (also known as Shim E. Bango), MarvWon, and King Gordy. All four are veterans of the same open mic and battle circuits that birthed the likes of Eminem, D12, Slum Village, and Royce Da 5'9". All four are proficient, battle-tested lyricists.
Fatt Father (Fatts, Fattfather, born Shabazz Ford) is the leader of the group. Fatts is capable of going from personable to menacing in a matter of moments; lyrically vivid yet down to earth, his descriptive tales of the pleasure and pain of street life pull the listener into his world.
Bang Belushi (Shim-E-Bango), maybe the largest member, possesses an agile, quick-witted flow that's as colorful as the trademark throwback jerseys he wears. His unmistakable voice lends energy and inertia to every track he blesses.
King Gordy (born Waverly W. Alford III) is indescribable, an enigma wrapped in a scowling horn-headed visage, furiously spitting rapid-fire gothic venom, yet still capable of turning heads and opening ears with a unique and soulful brand of singing.
The Fat Killahz began in 2001 as an inside joke between Marvwon and Fattfather. The joke turned into serious business; they enlisted heavyweights Shim E-Bango and King Gordy shortly thereafter. Seemingly overnight, open mic after open mic was ransacked by the four fat and furious emcees. Tearing down local spots like the Lush Lounge, the Blind Pig, Motor, St. Andrew's Hall and the Shelter, and the State Theater, F.K. rapidly gained respect in the streets and a devoted following. Battle opponents and fellow emcees quickly learned that F.K. was nothing to play with; all four emcees were skilled lyricists and engaging performers, and as a group they gradually developed a unique sound: heavy, thumping street anthems, melodic, bouncy tracks to ride to, humorous hood stories, and healthy doses of comic relief. After smashing a number of venues (including a raucous, shirtless performance at the 2002 Impact Convention), the Fat Killahz decided it was time to hit the studio.
They released the 2 Fat, 2 Furious mixtape to positive reactions throughout Detroit city, and the public just wanted more. Making an appearance on King Gordy's solo album The Entity, the single Fat-Tastic 4 rose to #1 on the college hip-hop charts. F.K. followed up a successful run supporting Gordy as the opening act on D12's US tour in 2004 with the release of their WFKR 31.3 FKM: FK Radio The Mixtape "The World's Largerst Mixtape".
They were treated to the full-length album: on March 15, 2005, "Guess Who's Coming To Dinner?" was released via No Tyze Entertainment. Featuring production from hard hitters such as Denaun Porter and B.R. Gunna, "Guess Who's Coming To Dinner?" displays the Fat Killahz dynamic song writing, vivid street savvy lyrical poetry, and comedic wit. Then six years later they put out their extended play album named The E.P. via Morbid Music LLC. The Fat Killahz are currently working on their sophomore album titled Fat Tuesday.
