Father, figurehead of the Atlanta DIY rap collective Awful Records, usually produces his own music. But for his new EP Someone Get These New Niggas, he’s teaming up with Lex Luger, the Virginia producer who’s worked with Waka Flocka Flame and Juicy J and who helped bring stormy crunk drums back at the beginning of the decade. The first song we’ve heard from the EP is called “Alleyoop Swish,” and it bangs a whole lot harder than any Father song I’ve heard in the past, which has me excited to hear the rest of the EP. In the JMP-directed video, a fisheye-lensed camera slowly circles Father and guest rapper LuiDiamonds while the rest of the Awful Records crew parties nearby. Watch it below, via Gorilla Vs. Bear.
Someone Get These New Niggas is presumably coming soon.
