ANNOUNCES HU$BAND EP DUE OUT OCTOBER 9th
VIA AWFUL RECORDS/RCA RECORDS
Toronto, ON – September 11, 2019 – Atlanta rapper/producer/artist, Father, has released a new track and accompanying video for Handful via Awful Records/RCA Records. He also announces a forthcoming EP, HU$BAND, is due out on October 9th. Click here to watch Handful.
Handful is produced by Bankroll Got It (E-40, Kid Ink) and written by Father. The track follows the release of last month’s, A lot on ur plate, which will also appear on the HU$BAND EP and received great reviews from Highsnobiety, Consequence of Sound, Hypebeast, and many more.
Father previously announced he will embark on a US headlining tour this fall, which will kick off in Los Angeles on September 26th and hit major cities, including San Francisco, his hometown of Atlanta, and Chicago, before wrapping on October 15th in New York. Tickets are available for purchase now. For more information, please visit: fatheraintshit.com/tour.
HU$BAND will be the follow-up to Father’s Awful Swim project, which was released in collaboration with Adult Swim last year, and featured standout tracks, We Had a Deal, Lotto ft. ABRA, and Thotnite.
Listen to/watch Handful, catch Father on tour and keep an eye out for more from the Awful Records leader coming soon.
From the start, Father’s music was filled with a mischievous charm that poked fun at the world as much as he pointed the finger back at himself – in his breakthrough single ‘Look at Wrist’ he famously rapped, “never had to flip a brick, but I get the gist.” This charm built through his first string of albums – Young Hot Ebony (2014), Who’s Gonna Get Fucked First (2015), and I’m a Piece of Shit (2016) – which Father endearingly referred to as, “a trilogy of fuckery.” Dripping with swag, bouncy, lofi beats, and his signature monotonous flow, these three projects cemented Father as the prodigal son of the independent hip hop kingdom.
Father soon relocated to Los Angeles from Atlanta, where he found a new sense of balance and quick success with his 2016 hit single “Heartthrob.” After forging a partnership with RCA and Adult Swim, Father delivered his most widely acclaimed album yet, Awful Swim (2018). Although still rampant with his devious inner-child, this album showed off Father’s maturity as an artist when it came to working with more complex production and refining his storytelling savvy.
Not far from the spontaneous nature of Awful Swim, the upcoming “A lot on ur plate” captures Father at his strongest and most comfortable. Keep an eye out for more from the DIY Atlanta artist coming soon.
