During the 2 Â½ years he spent in the belly of the beast at Parchman Penitentiary he started to write lyrics and soon realized that hip hop was the direction he needed to pursue. Once he got out of the joint Fatz began laying the ground work for his spot in the Mississippi music scene. After numerous freestyle contests wins on a local radio station Fatz started laying tracks for his first solo album. Before this project could be finished, a friend talked him into joining the Bentley Boys. The Bentley Boys is a group run by Mississippiâ€--s Notorious Huggie B.
