Carol City's Phatz has stayed busy as of late. A couple months ago in late March, we featured his mixtape Palm Trees & Bomb Weed as our mixtape of the week. The release received a good amount of attention and praise locally, and Phatz even went on to release videos for a couple of the standout songs.
One of these was the hard-hitting, yet laid-back "Imma Mess," produced by Tracy Brown and Vince the Prince. The beat itself is very hypnotic and extremely addicting, and would almost make any non-rapper want to become one. The lyrics, meanwhile, are built on a sing-song melody that describes "staying fresh," cup of Henny at hand, admiring the presence of beautiful women.
