Last week, Houston-based rapper Fat Tony released a joint track (‘I Told Ya’) with a “cocktail metal” band called Infinity Shred featuring Awkwafina, Effie Liu and TRPL BLK. From the start, the song references the infamous television couple Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. Suddenly, the song takes shape and explores each artist’s complex relationship. Stream the track below. Then, turn on an episode of the X-Files. Watch it in a dark lit room.
