Fat Tony - “Hood Party” (2013)
Mass Appeal: "This Fat Tony video is hilarious. DJ Quik once said, “I don’t want to party with you”, and in a lot of rap video instances, that’s truly the case. But I can’t lie, this party looks like way too much fun to ever pass up."
CMJ: ”Despot and Das Racist’s Kool A.D. join Fat Tony in a Google Hangout to show off their respective New Year’s parties in this low-tech music video for CMJ Mixtape stand-out Hood Party.”
Stereogum: ”The track’s two guest rappers, former Das Racist member Kool A.D. and El-P associate Despot, both live in different places, and the video comes up with a smart shortcut: It’s constructed as a Google Hangout, with the three rappers and producer Tom Cruz checking in from various different shindigs. Bonus points for the NBD Bun B cameo,”
SPIN : "The song’s solid and the parties look fun, as simultaneous story lines unfold through MacBook webcams. "
GRANTLAND: “If your music video is a Google hangout, I want to be your groupie so bad”
Potholes In My Blog : "Fat Tony and his team deserve an award for the “Hood Party” video, if only because it actually offers something new and interesting for the viewer."
