Fat Nick @ Social Hall

A rondure, dreaded, high school dropout, Fat Nick is yet another underground rapper from Miami intent on slithering his way into the mainstream. Along with his friend and fellow rapper, Pouya, the pair started a YouTube series called Nick and Pouya Show in middle school, which led them to link up with the mercurial, once-great collective Raider Klan. That friendship emboldened the boys to quit their jobs as a drug dealer (Nick) and busboy (Pouya) and start spitting their own bars. With two albums under his belt — Fat Camp and this year’s When the Lean Runs Out — Nick is on his way to becoming a cult sensation, a sort of rapping Andy Milonakis with a trap bent and a penchant for dark, glitchy beats. The young’uns are gaga over this dude, so expect a lot of underage tweens at this show — as well as a raucous, packed stage, filled with all of Nick’s homies, because for some reason that is a staple at most up-and-coming rap shows.
