Who is FatBoy SSE?

Born on 16 November 1993, in Irvington, New Jersey, USA, under the water sign of Scorpio, Tyriq Thomas Kimbrough, better known as Fatboy SSE, is an American comedian, rapper and social media personality. His other nicknames include “Fats” and “Boobie”, which might normally be considered derogatory, but he accepts as identifying.  He rose to fame after he was fired from his job at Chipotle, and started recording rap songs. These parody tracks earned him a lot of attention, which lead Tyriq to explore other genres of comedy, such as stand-up, sketch, improvisation and posting funny videos on Instagram. He is also beloved due to his inspiring life story.

Early Life and Education: From Football Star to Drug Dealer

Tyriq was raised in New Jersey by parents of unknown names and professions. Despite being a well-known celebrity, he’s never shared much about his family or childhood, politely refusing to answer any and all questions that didn’t address his career. He grew up alongside several siblings, one of whom is famous comedian and YouTuber Darius DK. FatBoy SSE also had a sister, who died as a result of a shooting in 2008. We do know that FatBoy SSE attended Union Avenue Middle School in his hometown, where he excelled as a football player, but was never interested in academics. Instead, his focus was on becoming rich and famous by any means necessary.

Even though he was considered a talented athlete, his lack of money prompted him to explore unconventional methods of work – such as selling narcotics. At the tender age of 14, he started off by selling one-gram packs of marijuana, but quickly moved on to larger quantities and harder drugs, such as crack cocaine and cocaine. The money he earned mesmerized him, and he wouldn’t stop.

Life Before Fame: Prison and Working at Chipotle

Even though he saw many of his friends murdered or arrested, FatBoy SSE couldn’t get out of the drug trade. A string of bad life choices resulted in several prison sentences , ranging from a week to several months. During his time behind bars Tyriq read a lot, and thought long and hard about what would happen to him if he continued down the path he chose.

After his fifth sentence was over, FatBoy SSE vowed to stay away from illegal activities, and started looking for a job, recalling ‘At first, I thought there was no way in hell that I would work 9-5, but I realized that I just had to try and it would be easy to get used to that life’. He was hired by Chipotle, a famous Mexican fast food restaurant chain, but struggled greatly. Despite the fact that he earned money with honest hard work and could pay his bills, a normal job just wasn’t for him. After just three months, his manager insulted him and fired him for being constantly late; as a result, Tyriq hasn’t eaten at Chipotle to this day.

Becoming a Rapper: Instagram and a String of Successful Singles

Although he could have easily started selling drugs again, FatBoy SSE wanted to make his family proud. So he turned toward the thing he loved the most – rapping. Even as a child, he used to freestyle over beats in the schoolyard, alongside his classmates. Inspired by his passion and “previous experience”, he started posting short freestyles and homemade music videos on Instagram. He adopted a unique style, which involved being both serious and ironic at the same time. In 2015, he released his breakthrough song “Want 2”, which went viral in a matter of hours, and motivated Tyriq to work even harder.

In January 2016, he released his first official mixtape “Boobie From The Block”, and songs such as “2 Big Macs” ft. Bundles, “Mind Yo Business” and “McDonalds Freestyle” ft. DJ Spunk all became hits. He followed up with “F*ck Burger King” in 2016 and two more albums in 2017 – “A Fat Kid Loves Cake” and “2 Fat”. Songs such as “Drake”, “Never Give a H*e Nothing”, “Mama House” and others have appeared on several American music charts.

Establishing Himself as a Comedian

2017 Arrest

He was released the next morning, but caused a bit of a stir with a now-deleted Instagram video, in which he talks about police brutality and being held at gunpoint. He wrote the following in the description of the video: ‘LISTEN LISTEN LISTEN THE MIAMI BEACH COPS WAS JUST HATING ON ME CUZ I WAS DRIVING A BRIGHT RED RARRI & THEY STATED WE KNO WHO YOU ARE BUT WE DONT GIVE A F*CK YOU GOING IN FATBOY.’ As of mid-2024, he hasn’t had any others brushes with the law since this unfortunate incident.

We do know that he was in a relationship with a girl named Jes for several years – she is also a comedian, and was introduced by FatBoy SSE in an Instagram prank video called “Fat Boy hates when n*gga tries to talk with his girl”. However, things ended on a bad note, as Jes broke-up with him in February 2019, accusing him of beating her. He retaliated by stating she fabricated her claims and that she was “trying to save face” after she allegedly cheated on him.
