A-1
Consistent as a lyricist, A-1 brings acrobatic word play, hard hitting punch lines and poetic visuals to the forefront in his music. Introspective verses about his own life and the world around him from the perspective of a young, working class member of society, with a scatterbrained sort of versatility separate his music from the others.

Adam Rashid Traore aka A-1 is a first generation American rapper from the San Francisco. Born and raised in the Mission District of San Francisco by immigrant parents, A-1 was introduced to an extreme diversity of culture from a young age. Growing up in a working class family, and being exposed to so many walks of life helped define A-1's open-minded and charismatic nature, as well as added to his creative and artistic abilities.
