One thing cool about Hip Hop is you can be fat and be a player. As long as you got flair and style, you still in the game.

The Overweighter, Chubbs, Buff. These are the nick-names of some of the best fat rappers.

Let’s run it down.

Heavy D

Hev D was there for the Golden Age of Hip Hop, back in the late 80s, early 90s. He had more bounce to the ounce, and took advantage of that mass appeal. He got the girls with that baritone voice and smooth delivery. All Hail, Hev D!


Got to give you the classics!

Chubb Rock

Possibly one of the most under-rated rappers of all time, with a one-hit wonder, Chubb Rock has a smooth flow, clever rhymes, and a cool gruff voice before the days of Jah Rule. Hear it for Chubb Rock, Ya Bad!

The Fat Boys

Well, of course, you can’t talk about fat rappers without talking about The Fat Boys, the one and only, the original meaty rappers; with Buff the Human Beat Box, the biggest of the crew and DJ; Prince Marky D, Puerto Rican Casanova of the Mic; and master lyricist and burger muncher Kool Rock Ski!

Yeah, didn’t think they could do it, didja?

Big Pun

Unapologetic, crude, with decent lyrical acrobatics and a smooth flow: Pun’s still not a player.

The Notorious B.I.G.

Finally, we can’t end this discussion without mentioning that Notorious B.I.G, famous gangsta rapper and pimp dad on the mic. True legend, smooth and intricate with the lyrical delivery, and has left an indelible mark on Hip Hop!

I love it when you call me Big Poppa! I remember dancing to that at the club, thinking I was Big Poppa. Classic gangster Hip Hop with the high-end synthesizer and slow beat. That’s where it’s at!

This concludes our adventure into the classic fat, and phat, rappers of Hip Hop!
