Fatman Scoop is instantly recognisable in the hip hop world for his distinctive name, huge reputation and not least his physical size. Not only a very big deal in the hype game, he has also enjoyed success as a hip hop promoter and radio personality, his rough aggressive tone defining his distinctive style. Having caused a stir in the Big Brother house not long ago, he is more popular than ever and is available for bookings through MN2S music booking agency in London.
As you might imagine, there is an intriguing story behind Fatman Scoop’s name. The moniker originally came from Lauryn Hill, she would shout “scoop, scoop, fatman scoop” at him when he appeared as a cinema worker in the video for legendary hip hop group The Fugees’ cover of ‘Killing Me Softly’. An ice cream lover herself, Lauryn Hill sang a spoof version of the tune, replacing the lyrics with “Filling my belly with popcorn”, which Fatman Scoop very much enjoyed.
