Renaissance Soul Podcast: Ep. 7 - The King Father Episode (w/ Detroit Hip Hop Artist Fatt Father)

Renaissance Soul was originally a Detroit hip-hop website started in 2001 by your host Kelly “K-Fresh” Frazier that first centered around the discography of legendary producer Jay Dee aka J. Dilla before it branched out to all Detroit hip-hop and music. In many cases, Renaissance Soul was the first place you heard many Detroit music artists that you love today. With it’s revival as a podcast, each episode will focus on specific topics (an album, an era, a legacy, etc) from Detroit music of all genres from the past and present from a historical perspective.

For this episode, your host Kelly “K-Fresh” Frazier is joined by Detroit hip-hop artist Fatt Father to discuss his latest album King Father that he released back in May 2020. Fatt Father is known as a member of the hip-hop collective Fat Killahz and is a staple amongst the Detroit hip-hop scene for many years now. Fatt Father is not just a clever name, as you will hear in this episode and on this album, as he takes fatherhood seriously and you always feel it in his words. Fatt Father also brings that same energy to the up and coming hip-hop artists in Detroit as both a leader and a mentor.

We talk about the events going on in his life surrounding the making of King Father, what “King Father” means, fatherhood, and the themes of the album, as we go track-by-track through the album. King Father is a very personal album for Fatt Father and we talk about the life lessons that shaped the album.
