Atlanta rapper Father first jumped to fame when he teamed up with ILoveMakonnen for “Look At Wrist” last summer. A year later, and they’re back at it—Father just released his Papicodone EP on Soundcloud (coming soon to iTunes), and it includes a brand new Makonnen collaboration called “All Black Hummer.” Father’s Awful Records compatriots Archibald Slim and Ethereal also appear on the track, which rests on a hypnotic, effective keyboard loop.
“I need a hundred-million before summer n—ga, I pull up in the all black Hummer n—ga,” chants Makonnen on the chorus. On his verse, Father lapses into a drily sarcastic spoken-word voice, detailing an interaction with the police—“How are you doing today, sir? Was I speeding? My apologies, speak good English,” he raps, adding, “Bitch, don’t let it fool ya, I lose my cool and I bet somebody pull out they tool.”
If the past is any indication, this one seems poised to be a sleeper hit.
