Songfacts®:

  • This song finds the Goodie Mob speaking to their teenage audience, as they address the group's musical legacy and the impact of its extended Dungeon Family musical collective, which includes OutKast. "The significance of 'Father' is for the youngsters to realize, without us, there is no them," Goodie Mob member Big Gipp said at the album's LA listening party. "When you see Kendrick Lamar, you hear Andre 3000. When you see Drake, that's Cee Lo. When you see me, you see Trinidad [James]."
