“Fatboi is one of the hardest producers in the south. A lot of beats that people credit Shawty Redd for, FatBoi was actually the man behind them. Definitely someone to look out for." -DJ Lights Out
Fatboi (born LaDamon Douglas) is a hip hop producer from Savannah Georgia who has produced beats for artists including Gucci Mane, Young Jeezy, Rocko, Shawty Redd, Flo Rida, Bow Wow, Juvenile, Yung Joc, Gorilla Zoe, Nelly, Camoflauge, Daron Jones, OJ Da Juiceman and 8Ball & MJG. Fatboi got his start in 1998 as a producer for a Savannah, Georgia native Camoflauge, arguably Savannah's first hip-hop artist. Camoflauge and Fatboi created underground classics and the summer sex anthem "Cut Friends" in 2001 under Universal Records. Camoflauge was killed in 2003 leaving a dark cloud on Fatboi's career being that he was an in-house producer at Pure Pain Records. In 2006, Fatboi bounced back by linking up with super producer Shawty Redd producing hits "Let's Make A Movie" and "Drifter". Known for his heavy drum and bass lines and melodic synth sounds, Fatboi went on to create the Billboard topping hit “Wasted” by Gucci Mane feat. Plies on the rappers album The State vs. Radric Davis. The song was a out the door hit from start to finish, which quickly dubbed Fatboi as a Super Producer, and the go-to guy for hot beats. Since his success from “Wasted” he has won the ASCAP Award for 2010 and has been featured in national publications like XXL Magazine, Hip Hop Weekly Magazine, and The New York Times. He is currently working on several projects with artists ranging from Britney Spears, T.I, Ludacris, Trey Songz and Keri Hilson.
