The come-up of young A-F-R-O has been nothing short of miraculous. And it’s already gained him the attention of some of the best to ever do it. Recently this culminated in his Tonight Show debut, where the young Cali-native, albeit nervously, channeled Ahmir and Tariq circa nineteen eighty-something going completely off the dome as the show’s host, Jimmy Fallon, gave him new cues by the second.
Today, A-F-R-O follows up his exceptional Tales From The Basement and Modest World tapes with the release of a wholly Marco Polo-produced EP, more than aptly named, A-F-R-O POLO, marrying an uncanny command for wordplay and lyricism with beats that shake the floorboards loose. And best of all, it’s available for you to hear for the low, low price of free ninety-nine in the player down below. But if it’s good to your earhole, make sure you support by copping the A-F-R-O POLO EP on iTunes today. You can also jump over to A-F-R-O’s Bandcamp page to hear boy wonder spit over beats from MF DOOM and J Dilla, proving his dedication to the greats and insuring that our faith in this next guard of MCs is not in vain.
