San Francisco rapper A-1 has been on our radar for a few years now, ever since he destroyed classic kid TV jingles like All That, Family Matters, and Doug in 2010’s “After School Special”. A-1 hasn’t let up since, but he’s remained under the radar… until now, hopefully.
A-1 picks his beats extremely well, rapping over production from XXYYXX and Flosstradamus in his last mixtape The Thurl Tape, which you can download for free here.

Which leads us to now. A-1 tells scary tails of violence in the summer over Ryan Hemsworth’s sick remix of Lana Del Rey’s Sa Sa Summertime, Summertime Sadness. Props to Woostaar for the mix and A-1 for the enlightening raps. Really looking forward to what A-1 has in store for the near future.
