Joey Fatts, ASAP Nast and Playboi Carti Are Ready for “Action”
Joey Fatts, A$AP Nast and Playboi Carti are definitely action packing as the three young bloods team up for the new single "Action" today (June 8) via Soundcloud. This laidback heater was produced by K Swisha and mixed by 1000Staccs. K Swisha's a common collaborator of Fatts and the same producer responsible for the beat on the infectious party starter "Uber Everywhere" by Madeintyo. After about a one-minute intro, the three vibe on the synth-heavy beat. The guys even collaborated to have the song's cover art match the theme of the track and depict themselves as action figures.
"Tryna' case us, nigga slipping, we gon' let him have it/Glock clips long as intenines' if you want that static/In the whip, arm out the window, all my niggas blasting/Rockstar tatted/Cutthroat savage/Foreign coupe smashing/Bitch I'm 'bout that action," raps Joey in the first verse while Nast and Carti put supporting adlibs on the beat.
Joey Fatts just dropped his mixtape I'll Call You Tomorrow earlier this spring with features from his fellow Cutthroat Boy and former XXL Freshman Vince Staples along with Carti. Though he hails from from Long Beach, Calif., Fatts has strong ties with the entire A$AP Mob and even scored a feature on A$AP Rocky's debut Long.Live.A$AP back in 2013. Joey was managed by A$AP Yams before Yam's death and explained to XXL how he first linked up with the A$AP in 2012.
“[A$AP] Ant was the one who really broke me to them and after that Yams followed me on Twitter and he DM’d me like, ‘Yo, I wanna manage you.’ He flew out to L.A. the following week and that’s when I met Filth and all of them. Yams was managing me for a minute, that was my guy, my right hand man. He taught me everything I know about the industry. That’s why I’m not signed nowhere, ’cause I know everything already. I just know how the game works now, I’ve been here for two years and I’ve been an apprentice, an understudy to Yams while he was here. I see shit for how it is now and I’m ready to work, ready to take over.”
