A-F-R-O Freestyles Over 9th Wonder Rhythm Roulette Beat
There's no stopping him when he starts
A-F-R-O is an artist’s artist. Not only is he incredible at making almost anything rhyme with everything else, he’s taken on acting (see: VH1’s The Breaks) and understands the different branches of hip hop, and their places. He recently put out an EP with Marco Polo, aptly titled A-F-R-O Polo. While the duo were on a press run in NYC, they stopped by a Chinatown apartment with Duck Down James to show the world what A-F-R-O is truly capable of as an emcee.
In prime form, A-F-R-O freestyles for nearly three minutes about topics that Marco and Duck Down James give him from the side. They start with one of his favorite emcees, Guru, then go to his California hometown Bellflower, then end with some Longevity Noodles laying around. He doesn’t let his flow stop as they throw other topics at him as well. Watch the true freestyle above and peep A-F-R-O Polo below.
