As South Carolina’s godfather of hip-hop, FatRat Da Czar’s music career has spanned over two decades. Originating in Hampton Roads, VA and honing his skills in Columbia through the 90’s,  Czar solidified his role as an acclaimed solo artist with the release of Da Cold War album trilogy (2007-2012). With mid-tempo 4/4 beats, grandiose hooks and an unhurried baritone flow, FatRat’s confident and intermittently confrontational lyrics detail the joys and struggles that accompany his single-minded determination and commitment to success.  For a glimpse of his work, check out Love, Peace, and Hip-Hop.
