Chef Roblé has combined his love of food with his love of hip-hop to form a new rap group — the FoodTangClan.
Check out their song “Grubbin’ Problems” below:
Here’s some info on the project:
Caterer and celebrity chef, Roblé Ali, star of Bravo TV’s hit show Chef Roblé & Co., is renowned for his culinary skill and creativity, and he is set to make his mark in the entertainment field as well. As part of the parody rap trio Food-Tang Clan, Roblé, along with Chef Roblé & Co. co-star and culinary co-conspirator Ché “Gravy” and food enthusiast Jason “J. Brew” Brewster, released their first single, “Grubbin’ Problems,” on SoundCloud.com this week.
“Grubbin’ Problems,” a creative and humorous take on A$AP Rocky’s “F—–g Problems,” offers listeners a look at one of the dilemmas faced by foodies the world over: too many temptations in the kitchen, pantry, and elsewhere. Whether it is trying to resist the allure of their own creations or those of store-bought snacks, Food-Tang Clan hilariously details the many culinary delights they love in this send-up of the rap hit. The group uses clever rhymes, lyrical ability and knowledge of all things culinary to bring entertaining, light-hearted rap songs to music fans.
Opening for 2 Chainz—who did the hook for the original “F—–g Problems”—Food-Tang Clan performed for the first time on Saturday, February 23 in their hometown of Poughkeepsie, New York at the Mid-Hudson Civic Center. The group entertained the crowd with “Grease,” a wicked spin on Trinidad James’s “All Gold Everything.”
From stuffing and gravy to the remedy for a girl who cooks “wack chicken” to a shout out to the beloved Hostess Twinkie, “Grubbin’ Problems”—which can be found on Soundcloud offers listeners a tongue-in-cheek peek into the kitchen of Food-Tang Clan. The group, which is produced by Slimmy Neutron—Ali and Aahmek Richards serve as executive producers—plans to release a series of music videos and a mixtape, Watch the Stove, in the coming months.
