Joey Fatts Love Is For Fools Single Review

The flow of Joey Fatts ties together Fat Joe and Royce Da 5’9 while having a certain warmth to his voice that resounds loudly through this DJ Statik Selektah, making this track primed and ready for rap rotation. A soulful sample comprised the meat of the backing beat, with a funky guitar line and horns that keep things dynamic and compelling. The lyrical intensity of Joey Fatts’ flow is something that will have listeners spinning the song back just to hear the full freshness that he lays down. This Pittsburgh rapper pushes things in a different way than either Mac Miller or Wiz Khalifa, providing further evidence that the rap scene of the Steel City is alive and vibrant.


I think that what Joey Fatts brings to the table is the harmony that is present in his flow. While most rappers merely ra on top of a backing track, he is able to come further and make the backing beat shine even as the beat does the same for his bars. It is all of these elements working together that makes Love Is For Fools such a can’t-miss cut; the track will ring loudly in listeners’ ears long after the beat has rode out.


The track taps out at a shade below three and a quarter minutes, making this an emphatic statement that will introduce masses to an impressive newcomer to the rap scene. I have a good feeling about Joey Fatts – there is a good chance that his star will rise as his inimitable flow continues to impress.
