Father back! After more than two years, the Atlanta MC and Awful Records founder is launching himself back into the spotlight—and it's about damn time. In his first project since I'm a Piece of Shit, released in March 2016, Father finds himself pairing up with Adult Swim. The result is his latest project, Awful Swim, released via Awful Records/RCA.
The mixtape marks a new partnership that will include Awful Swim artwork and merchandise to-come, designed by Emmy-award winning designer J.J. Villard. Additionally, Father’s music will be featured in those Shazam-worthy music bumps between Adult Swim programming. Father is also set to perform at the inaugural Adult Swim Festival in L.A., which pops off this October. Awful Swim was released for early listening this week on the Adult Swim website, and is now available to stream via Apple Music/iTunes and Spotify below.
Father is officially back on his bullshit with Awful Swim, which was led by the singles "Lotto," "We Had a Deal," and "Thotnite." His signature raunchy-with-a-side-of-class aesthetic is on full display throughout the project, featuring bangers produced by meltycanon, Nedarb, Eugene Cam, Nate Donmoyer, and Father himself.
In support of Awful Swim, Father will be hitting the road this fall with Awful Records duo Danger Incorporated, starting overseas in mid-October. After making his way through Europe, the North American leg of the aptly titled Private Show Tour will kick off Nov. 2 in Chicago, followed by stops in Cleveland, Detroit, Toronto, Boston, and more.
