I KNEW I recognized the San Fran rapper A-1 from somewhere. I kept replaying this song the last couple of weeks but couldn’t quite put my finger on why it sounded so familiar. But then it hit me. A-1 is the same dude that dropped a mixtape around the time FITA launched way back in 2010.

With After School Special, he sampled 90’s shows like All That!, Pokemon, Doug, Family Matters and more. And damn, was he sick back then too.

Fast forward to today, more than 4 years later, since then he’s dropped 5 more full projects. And he’s gotten even better, getting ready to drop his best project yet: Thurlian. It’s due out March 5th. He’s starting to remind of Kendrick Lamar.. you know… arguably hip hop’s savior.

To hype, he first dropped killer bars over Mr. Carmack‘s “Hopscotch.”

He then followed it up with a brand new music video for “Good People” as he flips BEAR//FACE‘s original track titled “Taste My Sad.”

Long story short, project is gonna be DOPE.
