Fist Fam's "Drinkin" in the Cackalack backwoods


There are few hip-hop crews that get so gleefully shitfaced at gigs -- in fact, I think cheap domestics actually power Fist Fam's psychedelic hip-hop pick-up truck. Or maybe the group's mojo, underlaid with remixed crate gems from DJ Al Lover, comes from the fact the whole posse is family-close, having moved to the Bay from North Carolina pretty much en masse a few years ago. Both factors (Coors Banquet and bro love) are present in the video for the group's new summer anthem, shot at emcee Philo's childhood home in what the press release calls "the moonshine mountains of Asheville." So how drunk was the Fam by the end of a day of "Drinkin"? "I think fools went out to the bars afterwards though, so maybe not drunk enough," recalls Al Lover, somehow.

Fist Fam, I love your music - but I'm done paying money to watch half of you blackout and fall down on stage. If you can't handle it, maybe you shouldn't be Drinkin - cuz it seems more like you're punkin out to your fans. Don't forget to invite us to the party too.
