If anyone could be called leader of the modern mess of a rap crew—Awful Records—it would be Father. He was an art school dropout who founded
“Awful Media Group” as a video and branding service in Atlanta, later turning to music as an experiment.
It's a transitional time for the head of Awful Records. After years declining offers from major labels and staying independent, Father finally came across an opportunity he couldn't pass up: a creative partnership with RCA Records. Structured differently than a standard label deal, his notoriously DIY crew maintain their creative freedoms, while gaining the financial backing they need to pull off projects beyond the scope of their small team in Atlanta.
"They're investing in us to continue doing what we've been doing," Father says. "It's just now we have the funding to do exactly what we want to do." His ambitious plans for the future include major motion pictures—or at least a Hulu Original—and he points out that the music coming from Awful Records has always "sounded big." In RCA, he sees a chance to get that music in front of bigger audiences that haven't yet been exposed to their sound.
The first release under the partnership will be Father's fourth album. He says it's his most focused effort yet, but makes a point to reassure fans it hasn't been ruined by too much maturity. "I'm still on the same bullshit," he admits.
