Prof Runs Himself Through Soapy Joe's Car Wash in "Farout"


After signing with Rhymesayers nearly a year ago, Prof is finally showing off more of the character of his next album, now slated for next spring. Compared to the combative feel of his debut single for the label, "The Reply," the brash rapper "made of piss and vinegar" has sugar on the brain in "Farout," produced by Minneapolis-based 84 Caprice.

The mid-tempo, sax-laden beat and his all-sung delivery creates a fiesta atmosphere on par with "Moron," and boasts another local landmark in St. Paul-based Soapy Joe's Car Wash

Directed by Kron, the clip features Prof and fellow Twin Cities rapper Meta as a couple of car wash attendants so zombified by their jobs that they're hallucinating. The song itself doesn't bring out immediate comparisons to Rose Royce's "Car Wash," but the fantasy world does. What happens when suds meet lots and lots of skin? Despite all of the cleaning products in use and what appears to be a bit of a mellowing of the oft-fiery rapper, this is still a pretty dirty song.

Prof performs at Zombie Pub Crawl on Saturday, October 11.
