Father

When: Fri., May 8, 8 p.m. 2015

Mike WiLL’s ubiquitous producer tag has nothing on the creepy “Forgive Me Father” confessional that stamps many of the emcee’s weirdo songs. Originally known as Father’s Liquor Cabinet, the Atlanta rapper employs his freak-funk comedy all over the 2014 breakout effort Young Hot Ebony. Like Father’s sense of humor, the album owes a good deal to the trailblazing stupidity and constant brilliance of Lil B, with singsong non-sequiturs and song names like “Why Can’t I Cry $$$.” In the video to the 2014 hit “Look At Wrist,” Father makes the connection explicit, doing the Lil B cooking dance in his ATL living room. “Want my wrist so cold pneumonia in my fist,” rhymes Father, jumping over the logical middle ground of his analogy, expecting us to follow suit. With Maxo Kream, Crit Life, KC$B, and Team Next.
