Dallas-based Rapper Fat Pimp Scores On The Billboard Charts
Admittedly, this flew under my radar until this afternoon, but it looks like Lil Wil isn't the only local rapper making national waves. Dallas-based rapper Fat Pimp has been getting his share of national love, too--and he has been for at least seven weeks or so according to this Billboard chart. This week, Fat Pimp and Jodean's single, "I'm Gettin' Money" is sitting at No. 86 on Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. Meanwhile, the duo also charted at No. 14 on this week's Billboard Bubbling Under R&B/Hip-Hop Singles chart for their song "Rack Daddy." More impressively, it looks like they've managed to do this without any major label support behind them.
Take that, Houston. -- Pete Freedman
