Fatman Scoop In New Zealand for the Very First Time This May for The ‘Sunrise’ Tour


America’s favourite hype man - Fatman Scoop – is coming to New Zealand for the very first time this May, with support from UK beat man DJ Bluey.

Fatman Scoop is notorious for shouting his name and requesting that you do whatever he tells you… so put your hands up! Whether it’s Scoop’s rambunctious baritone hyping a track or video cameos for P.Diddy, 50 Cent, or Elephant Man to name a few, Scoop’s booming voice, catchy hooks, electrifying energy and charismatic presence never go unnoticed!

His most recent track ‘Sunrise’ (out now through Liberator Music) sees him collaborate with Major Lazer member Jillionaire, and the Ghanaian MC Fuse ODG. Premiered on Beats 1 with Zane Lowe, the feel-good anthem pairs Scoop’s commanding vocals withFuse ODG’s rousing melodies.

The song’s accompanying video depicts life in Darak, Senegal.

Jillionaire explains:
"For many years I've been fascinated with the Gris Gris Fighters of Senegal, so much so that I wanted to do a documentary piece on them. When the opportunity came up to work with a French/ Senegalese crew on my new music video, we put together this coming of age story between two young lovers - a bright eyed young woman exploring a new environment and a young man hoping to perfect his art as a wrestler."

Other noteable Fatman Scoop bangers include ‘Be Faithful’, a feature vocal on Missy Elliot’s Grammy Award winning single ‘Lose Control’ and ‘It Takes Scoop (feat. DJ Kool’).

Taking to the stage to perform his classic hits and DJ up a storm, Fatman Scoop’s rambunctious energy on stage is where he’s earned his hype man title. https://mn2s.com/booking-agency/live-roster/fatman-scoop
