Father – “Everybody In The Club Getting Shot” Video

Atlanta Awful Records figurehead Father dropped an excellent crew-focused mixtape this spring called Who’s Gonna Get Fucked First? that went slightly under the radar — probably because it came out right around SXSW. The best song on that tape is a sex-positive slow jam called “BET Uncut” with a killer verse from Rich Po Slim, but one of the second best is “Everybody In The Club Getting Shot.” It’s another example of Father’s razor-edge, sneering irony — he’s blurred out the guns in the clip but left all the twerking and sexual references. He raps lines like “Everybody in the club getting shot” and no one bats an eye, reflecting our somewhat numb reaction to how prevalent gun violence has become in our society. On top of that, there’s also a great interpolation of J-Kwon’s “Tipsy” mixed in. Father is doing his best Urkel impression in the clip, wearing thick framed glasses and fronting a whole crew dressed in soft pink. Watch below.
