LaDamon Douglas (born March 21), professionally known as Fatboi, is an American hip hop producer from Savannah, Georgia who has produced beats for artists including Camoflauge, Gucci Mane, Young Jeezy, Rocko, Shawty Redd, Flo Rida, Bow Wow, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, Juvenile, Yung Joc, Gorilla Zoe, OJ Da Juiceman, 8Ball & MJG, Jeremih, 2 Chainz, Nicki Minaj, Bobby V, Ludacris and Yo Gotti.

Early life[edit]

Fatboi was exposed to musicianship at a young age, with a father who was a Jazz Musician and Music Instructor named Larry T. Douglas of Galileo Highschool in San Francisco. Led by his father he tried out and was accepted at the San Francisco School of the Arts.

Career[edit]

The Savannah, Georgia born producer 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. After a brief incarceration, Fatboi bounced back in 2006 with super producer Shawty Redd producing hits "Let's Make A Movie" and "Drifter", to be featured on his upcoming Universal Motown release later this year. Also, he is known for his heavy drum and bass lines and melodic synth sounds. His production signature is some rapid snares and a voice in the beginning of his music saying "Look at Fatboi!"

DJ Lights Out quote:

“Fatboi is one of the hardest producers in the south. A lot of beats that people credit Shawty Redd for, Fat Boi was actually the man behind them. Definitely someone to look out for in 2009.” [1]
