Who is Fat Nick?

Born under the earth sign of Virgo on 6 September 1994, in Miami, Florida USA, Fat Nick is a 24-year-old American rapper and entrepreneur. There are disputes about his real name, as some say it’s Nikolas Voutsinas (Νίκολας Βουτσινάς), while others claim it’s Niccolo/Nicholas Minucci. He rose to fame when he started hosting the popular YouTube series “The Nick and Pouya Show”, alongside good friend and famous rapper Kevin Pouya. As a child, he was involved in illegal activity, but he turned his life around to became a successful musician. He is best known for his debut album “Fat Camp” and several hit singles. Fans also regard him as a skilled comedian, in addition to being one of the founding fathers of Soundcloud rap, a controversial hip-hop subgenre.

Early Life and Education: Growing Up in Miami

Fat Nick was raised by Maria Minucci, a single mother of Cuban descent. According to several reports, he apparently has a sister. His maternal grandparents immigrated from Cuba in the middle of the 20th century, and he also has Greek roots from his father’s side. Ever since he was a kid, he never had it easy. His mother had a lot of trouble with various boyfriends, so young Nicholas never had the right environment to blossom properly. In 2009, he enrolled at an unspecified high school in his hometown, but quickly dropped-out because of hardships at home.

As a child, he was constantly overweight, which earned him the moniker Fat Nick. At first, it bothered him, but he soon embraced his appearance and started viewing it as his own unique trait. Ever since he was a child, he harbored an interest in music. His goal was to have a successful career, and the age of online promotion suited him perfectly, as he could be in complete control of his destiny.

Brief Acting Career: The Sopranos

Maria, Nick’s mother, quickly realized that her son was destined for a career in show business, and so signed him to a talent agency in Miami. Shortly after doing this, he was offered a small part in “The Sopranos”, one of the most critically acclaimed TV shows of all time. This is Nick’s only foray into acting and we don’t know if he wishes to give this form of art another try.

Career Beginnings: Teaming Up With Pouya and Meeting SpaceGhostPurrp

Nick didn’t make the decision to drop out of high school on his own. His close friend Kevin Pouya also didn’t see a future in education, having other things in mind. Young Pouya started rapping, and Nicholas quickly followed suit – the two learned how to make beats and practiced freestyling for hours without a break.

Together with friends Shake Well and Germ, they formed the rap collective Buffet Boys, which is one of the most important groups in all of Soundcloud rap.

Pouya launched a successful solo career, and Nick wanted to do the same. In 2014 he launched “Drop Em Off”, his debut single, featuring other members of Buffet Boys, a part of his debut solo mixtape “Tha Heart Attack”. Encouraged by the success of their early works, Pouya and Nick launched the “Nick and Pouya” show, a proto-podcast on YouTube, in which they talked about music, current events and various taboo topics. One day, SpaceGhostPurrp saw one of their videos and liked their pizzaz – he collaborated with Wiz Khalifa, Robb Banks and ASAP Rocky, and subsequently took the young stars under his wing and started making beats for them. This visibly improved the quality of their next few projects.

What is Soundcloud Rap?

Soundcloud rap is a form of rap music that originated on the music sharing platform, Soundcloud. Before the 2010s, musicians needed a lot of money to afford recording sessions in professional studios. This is without even mentioning dealing with publishers, representatives and other forms of hassle which no rapper could avoid. With this new platform, anyone could record music and make it available to millions of listeners. Soundcloud rap is characterized by low-quality production, murky vocals and punk influences. Fat Nick worked with some of the biggest names of the genre, such as Suicideboys, Lil Pump and Pouya. As the man who made hundreds of songs while Soundcloud rap was in its nascent phase, Nick is credited as one of the people who made this genre mainstream.

Breakthrough, Prison Time and Comeback

By late 2014, Nick was on cloud nine. He lived his dream of being a celebrity, with episodes of his show and his songs reaching millions of views on YouTube. To further his fame, he collaborated with other Florida artists such as Lil Pump, Suicideboys, and Robb Banks. However, not everything was positive at this time. Nick frequently dealt drugs to support himself, and even brushed shoulders with death from time to time. His bad lifestyle choices culminated when he was arrested for heavily injuring an African-American man and yelling racial slurs at him. Nick was initially sentenced to 11 years in prison, but served only a fraction of it after cutting a plea deal, but the time behind bars made him even more motivated to work hard and chase his dreams; he even lost 75 pounds during this time period. Fans were delighted when he was released and immediately started working on a mixtape. “Fat Camp” was a big hit, but his debut LP named “When the Lean Runs Out” brought him even more fame.

Recent Works

In recent years, Nick devoted himself to launching a merchandise line. His T-shirts and hoodies became highly regarded apparel items in the hip-hop world, with resale values sometimes reaching up to $1,000. In 2018, he released “Generation Numb”, his second LP and his first album. There are disputes involving his real debut album, as he released a lot of his early works on Soundcloud, resulting in many songs being uncatalogued. He’s currently working on his next album “FN2”, which is expected to be released sometime late in 2019, and the featured artists list will include iLoveMakonnen and Ugly God.

Personal Life: Does Fat Nick Have a Girlfriend?

As for his romantic involvements, there is almost no information across any credible sources that could accurately describe this part of his life. Nick himself tends to keep news about his partners completely private, and has not yet come forward to address these fan inquiries. Nothing is known about his early relationships, as well as his current status, however, he’s admitted to having several casual relationships and that he regularly has sex with fans and groupies.  He’s never seen attending any public events in particular female company, and there’s no one that the fans suspect across his social media profiles. According to the available information, or the lack thereof, Fat Nick is heterosexual and currently single.

Sexual Assault Allegations

In 2017, Fat Nick and his friend Pouya were accused of a number of sexual assaults by female fans. All of this stems from a report, which states that the two rappers sexually assaulted a 22-year-old tattoo artist. Both Nick and Pouya vehemently denied such allegations and claimed that they never had sexual intercourse, consensual or otherwise, with the plaintiff. Pouya’s spokesperson said the following: ‘Mr. Pouya is confident that a basic investigation of the facts will reveal that these claims are false, and once evidence is reviewed these allegations will be determined to have been made by a disingenuous individual.’ Nick’s fans were divided on the subject, with one group accusing the woman of “fishing for attention”, and the other believing the plaintiff, mostly due to the fact that Nick and Pouya openly stated that they “love having sex with fans”. The result of the case is still unknown to the general public.

Net Worth: How Rich is Fat Nick?

Have you ever wondered how affluent Fat Nick really is? According to several credible sources, he has a net worth of approximately $150,000, as of August 2019, amassed by going on several country-wide tours, having several million song streams on various platforms, and merchandise sales. Given the fact that he is still young, Nick can become much richer if he stays out of trouble and continues building his brands….and that’s a big ‘if’.

Body Measurements and Appearance: How Tall is Big Nick?

Fat Nick is approximately 5ft 8ins (172cm) tall and weighs 288lbs (130kg). While his overweight image has become somewhat of a trademark, Nick has recognized the hazards such a lifestyle can cause, and has dropped more than 60 lbs. He has many tattoos, and is known for dyeing his hair in bright colors, as well as having dreadlocks.

Online Presence

Thanks to the ever expanding grasp that social media and content sharing platforms have on worldwide audiences, it is in the best interests of most celebrities to keep their fans informed about their activities and thus maintain and potentially increase their ratings and profit. Fat Nick himself is no stranger to this popular trend, as his dedication to posting updates on his public profiles and engaging with his fans is at an all-time high. Interestingly, he doesn’t have an Instagram account, but his representatives have made a profile for his merchandise brand, which has just 800 fans following it. He runs profiles on Facebook and Twitter, with 80,000 and 200,000 followers, respectively. On Soundcloud, 200,000 people follow him, as well.

Quotes

#Quote
1When asked his age in an interview, Andy responded, "Somewhere between 10 and 30."
2[Asked if his show appeals more to kids or to adults]: "The show is, like, anywhere from 8 to 25. I don't know too many people over 30 who like it, but I definitely have some middle-aged people who tell me they watch the show, but I definitely think it's for a younger audience. Some of the stuff I used to do before I got the show was for an older audience."
3[on being a white hip-hop fan): "I've been into it [hip-hop] my whole life, but it's different from the white kids who dress the part, and their slang is obviously fake and all that. When these kids pose, it sounds so fake when every other word is like, 'Yo, yo yo!' and 'knowhutimsayin'?' I might say some s**t when I'm around my boys and stuff, but I hate the ones who give white kids who listen to [hip-hop] a bad name."
