Fat Tony & Taydex Share “Make A Baby”

A new single from Fat Tony & Taydex is out now called “Make A Baby” — off their forthcoming album, I Will Make A Baby in this Damn Economy (Carpark Records) out Aug. 25th. The track captures the essence of the entire album — clever, topical songwriting along with Fat Tony’s very eclectic rap style from years of being a part of diverse DIY music communities across North America. This track in particular is also Tony’s favorite, an ode to his partner and a future family together once they have their first child. The song encapsulates the close-to-home stories that make Fat Tony a memorable songwriter, and the earworm production by Taydex makes it one of the album’s strongest.

My inspiration was the production of Bad Boy Records’ songs in the late 90s; that jiggy sound. The Diddy and Mase song “Been Around the World” (Remix) with Carl Thomas was my guide for this song. I love how Carl adlibs vocals throughout their entire song, so I had the same thing done for this track. The Prince song “Let’s Have a Baby” was a big inspiration for me too.
