Fat Tony's 10 Favorite Food Songs

Earlier this afternoon, online of course, the Houston Press revealed the winners of our very first ever Houston Web Awards. The awards will be handed out in the flesh tomorrow night at Momentum Audi on Richmond, because it's still very hard to email someone a trophy.

The awards start at 7 p.m. and will be hosted by Brittanie Shey and Craig Hlavaty, esteemed members of Team Rocks Off. Even better, one of the busiest Houstonians both online and in the real world, talented "Luv It Mayne" rapper Fat Tony, will be there as "special guest" - DJ, presenter and performer. Tony does it all.

Tony and producer Tom Cruz are currently working on the follow-up to last year's much-adored LP RABDARGAB, which the rapper tells us will be out this winter on Greedhead, the label owned by Heems of Das Racist. We don't know where he finds the time, but a man's still gotta eat, so Rocks Off asked the Fat One to tell us a few of his favorite songs about food. He didn't disappoint.
