American Hype Man Fatman Scoop Takes NZ Roads For the First Time

America’s favourite hype man, Fatman Scoop, comes to Wellington, Auckland and Mt Maunganui in support of his most recent track 'Sunrise', with special performance from DJ Bluey.

Fatman Scoop is notorious for shouting his name and making the whole crowd raise their hands up high! Whether it’s a rambunctious baritone hyping a track or video cameos for P.Diddy, 50 Cent, or Elephant Man, Scoop’s booming voice, catchy hooks, electrifying energy and charismatic presence never go unnoticed!

His recent track features Scoop's collaboration 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 with Fuse ODG’s rousing melodies with a music video that depicts life in Darak, Senegal.

Jillionaire explained that for many years he's been fascinated with the Gris Gris fighters so much that he wanted to do a documentary piece on them. When the opportunity came up to work with a French/Senegalese crew on his new music video, they've put together the 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.

Experience the party vibe as Fatman Scoop take the stage with his classic hits and DJ up a storm.
