Fat Boy Fresh Vol. 3: Happy Birthday, Thomas is the latest release from Rapper Big Pooh, who greatly increased our anticipation with single drops like “Gold Chain” and “Don’t Change“. I’m particularly fond of the latter and its honest approach to all the fans, listeners, and detractors calling on Pooh to do everything he’s already done. Again. No, he’s not going to record a second Sleepers and no, Little Brother is not getting back together. And who cares, really?
Pooh and his former cohorts, 9th Wonder and Phonte, are all doing well on the solo tip and should be embraced for that. For me, Pooh’s honesty has always made him such an endearing figure in hip-hop and that remains true as I listen to Happy Birthday, Thomas this morning. It’s also impossible to not laugh at the interludes here. “26 Shots”?!
