A-1 Drops The Thurl Tape

September 7th, 2012  |  Published in Featured, random  |  61 Comments

Adam Rashid Traore, aka A-1, has been described as San Francisco’s next up and coming rapper, but if the The Thurl Tape is any indication, it won’t be long before A-1 establishes himself as one of the best to come out of the Bay Area. Released this week, the acronymic title, The Thurl Tape (Think Hustle Understand Really Live) appropriately describes A-1′s approach to his lyrics, performance, and music. Mastered by Jorge Hernandez, the 14-track album is a complete representation of his San Francisco roots and capabilities as an artist. As with all of A-1′s music, the album can be downloaded for free here.

To catch A-1 live, peep his upcoming tour dates with headliners Roach Gigz and Main Attrakionz here.

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
