Father (US / AWFUL RECORDS)

About The Event
WavyLand is proud to present the debut Australia tour of Awful Records founder, Father. Awful records have launched the careers of Zack Fox, Playboi Carti and Tommy Genesis.
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. Hi
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, his last release, HUSBAND EP, captures Father at his strongest and most comfortable. Keep an eye out for more from the DIY Atlanta artist coming soon.
