Ever since we caught wind of Lou Phelps, we’ve been obsessed with his knack for whipping up clever rhymes over beats smooth as butter. His latest track “Miss Phatty” is no exception – he waxes poetic about a thick queen ruling his world with puns galore and wavy drums.
Produced by Lou Phelps himself and his brother Kaytranada with additional vibes from BADBADNOTGOOD, the song “encourages the kids to go to the strip club and to fall in love with them,” Lou said of “Miss Phatty” when it dropped in August. We’ve got the exclusive on its accompanying music video directed by Phelps’ frequent collaborator Christian Boakye-Agyeman. Check out the visuals above, where Phelps rolls out of bed and into the strip club accompanied by his crew, only to get completely caught up in his feelings. “This video reflects an actual situation that I have lived. Self care is the best care,” Phelps told us.
“Miss Phatty” is from the Canadian rapper’s upcoming album 002 / LOVE ME, which Phelps says is about “telling relatable love stories that I have lived, imagined, fantasized about. It contains the good and bad and the ugly of a relationship.”002 / LOVE ME will be released September 21st 2018. Pre-order it right here.
