Houston – If you’re going to go to Houston, TX, you’ll want Fat Tony to show you around.  As I was told by one gentleman, “Fat Tony runs Houston yo.”  Luckily, I had Anthony Obi, better known as Fat Tony, to show me around this weekend.  Though I’ve seen him many times in Austin and Los Angeles, seeing him perform in his element was a completely ...
