A-1 "Summertime Sadness (prod. Ryan Hemsworth)" [Official Video]

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

Summertime might be long over, but A-1 comes through with a message that resonates throughout all seasons. A-1 takes Ryan Hemsworth's remix of Lana Del Rey's track and flips it into this cautionary tale of the spike in violence during the summer months in his hometown. The San Francisco emcee let's the scene play out on the wall of an old, abandoned Victorian house in San Fran with these fresh new visuals for "Summertime Sadness," watch below. Video directed by David Dutton. Get A-1's tour dates here, and if you're still sleeping' on The Thurl Tape, get that here, easily one of the best mixtapes to drop in 2012.
