Overweight Pooch (born Tonya Davis from Phoenix, Arizona) was a female hip-hop rapper from the early ’90s. Her stage name was derived from her childhood nickname & she was signed to A&M Records.
In 1991, she released her only album to date “Female Preacher.” It’s unknown how or if the album charted at all.
Overweight Pooch scored a hit with the song “I Like It” (that featured vocals by singer CeCe Peniston) which peaked at #58 on the U.K. Singles chart and #16 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Music\Club Play Singles chart.
Her follow-up singles “Ace is a Spade” & “Hip House Party” didn’t fare so well on the charts. These days, it’s unknown what Overweight Pooch is up to and it seems as if she has faded into obscurity.
