Fat Tony's 'Smart Ass Black Boy' gets a 10th anniversary redux to remind you that this record still slaps and arguably flew under the radar too soon. 

‘Smart Ass Black Boy: Redux’ is the 10th anniversary remixed and remastered edition of Houston rapper Fat Tony’s second studio album and first for Young One Records (an early Partisan imprint).

‘Smart Ass Black Boy’ was one of the most acclaimed hip-hop records of 2013, ultimately becoming one of the most beloved Houston rap records of the 2010’s. The album landed on year-end lists at Complex and VICE, with Noisey and Pitchfork premiering the videos for ‘BKNY’ and ‘Hood Party’ respectively. It was featured in NPR’s First Listen series where they described it as “refreshing” and “promising,” while Pitchfork said it “absolutely knocks.” Robert Christgau gave the record an A review (“homespun and imaginative”), and Rolling Stone called it a “thoroughly enjoyable batch of smart-ass raps.”

Fat Tony has since released records with Don Giovanni and Carpark, most recently this year’s ‘I Will Make a Baby in this Damn Economy’.

;Smart Ass Black Boy: Redux’ is released on opaque red vinyl with printed inner sleeve on Partisan. The album features a never before released ‘BKNY (Remix)’, featuring new verses from Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire, Melo-X, and GLDNEYE.

Press for the original release included support from Complex (The 10 Best Houston Mixtapes Of 2013), VICE (Top 50 Albums of 2012), video premieres with Pitchfork, Billboard and Noisey, interviews with Complex, SXSW and The Austin Chronicle, coverage across NPR, Spin, Pitchfork, The Quietus and features in The New York Times’ SXSW Review.
