The Rise Of A Rap Phenom? See A-F-R-O Crush It On Stage During a SXSW Performance

The number of words that come out of teen rap phenom A-F-R-O’s mouth during a performance is impressive. Witness his word-per-second clip from the performance above at SXSW 2015. You may not get every rapid fire sentiment, but what do you get is… this guy’s got talent. Doubly confirmed by his latest music vid that just dropped.

How did A-F-R-O get noticed? How did he suddenly end up in a recording studio with DJ Premier? What’s with that deal he just signed to star in a VH1 TV movie about the rise of ’90s hip hop? All good questions. Get the answers when you see the first installment of the Uproxx original series, Unchartered. You may be listening to the future of hip hop happen before your very ears.
