New York, NYFebruary 9, 2006Fat Man SCOOP, Hip-Hops official hype man, took home two Grammys last night. His first Grammy came as part of Mariah Careys win for Best Contemporary R&B Album. SCOOP collaborated with Mariah on her first single Its Like That also featuring Jermaine Dupri. Its Like That ft Jermaine Dupri & Fat Man SCOOP was also nominated for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, but lost to Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone."

SCOOP took home a second Grammy for his highly publicized collaboration with Missy Elliott on her chart topping single, Lose Control also featuring Ciara. The song won for Best Short Form Video. Lose Control ft Ciara & Fat Man SCOOP was also nominated for Best Rap Song, but failed to take home the Grammy.

Fat man SCOOP had this to say this is a great way to start the year. The year is only going to get better when I drop my new material. I expect to be right back here next year. But Ill be here on the strength of my own album. He also added they should add a new Grammy category -- Club Hit of the Year or Hype Man of the Year cause Id surely take both of them. Wishful thinking huh.

With all the excitement and success Fat Man Scoop has endured in the past year -- its safe to say that he is truly the real deal. The momentum continues as Fat Man SCOOP readies his first full-length album for release in the coming months. The album will feature collaborations with some of the biggest names in Hip-Hop, R&B and Dance Hall. Stay tuned! In the meantime you can tune into SCOOPs much talked about radio show on NYs Hot 97 between 10am and 3pm, Mon Fri.
