A-1 "Good People" [Official Video]

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

A week ago, Bay Area lyricist, A-1, tackled the subjects of stereotypes and assumptions we make of people we don’t know with his latest joint, “Good People (prod. BEAR//FACE).” Today, A-1 brings said good people to life in all of their 1400 frames per second glory with the official video. The visual, was shot with a high speed phantom camera out of a car window while driving really fast through A-1’s native San Francisco and Oakland streets. "We mainly chose to film around bus stops and train stations because we knew we would get the most diverse and different kinds of folks at those locations," explains A-1. "We wanted to show that 'good people' come in all forms. We wanted to create a piece that could be viewed more as an anthropological study, or a study of human beings, rather than just another rap video.” Video directed by Nelson G. Navarrese. Look A-1’s new mixtape, Thurlian, to drop on March 5th.
