FATRAT DA CZAR | ETHX (EP)
October 5, 2018
"ETHX is the larger-than-life rapper’s most aggressive missive in years. It’s tempting to look at it as a sort of course correction, a way to puff his chest after the touchier-feelier 2016 album RailRoad and the love-thy-neighbor salve of his folk-hop duo Colorblind. But it’s not: It’s a return to his gruff, gritty roots. ETHX is who Fat Rat is. It is great, and so is he." — Patrick Wall Free Times
LALISA | GODDESS FLOW (MXTP)
December 5, 2017
After years of building her resume with supergroup, Grand Royal, and the all-star hip-hop collective, New Success Culture, LaLisa is emerging as a unique and respected solo artist on South Carolina’s hip-hop scene. Combining strength, sex appeal, and street smarts, LaLisa’s breakout solo project takes the form of a ‘90s inspired mixtape with 17-tracks covering some of that era’s biggest names.
FATRAT DA CZAR | RAILROAD (LP)
December 16, 2016
"RailRoad — unleashed upon the world after little buildup last week — is less a follow-up to what came before than a summation of the scene-leading role to which Fat has ascended. A more optimistic offering than its methodically old-school predecessor, the new album finds the rapper handing down hard-won lessons and reflections with wizened authority. Sonically, it’s a remarkably vital work. Beaming with boisterous determination until it sinks into chilly R&B-meets-hip-hop vibes, it would work as a more understated chaser to Chance the Rapper’s Coloring Book." - Jordan Lawrence, Free Times
