San Francisco’s A-1 has to be one of hip-hop’s most introspective writers. Premiered by Noisey, the David Dutton-directed video for “Invisible Man” “shows what life is like in the city for someone who grew up before the city became a playground for dudes with too much money.” Remixing XXYYXX’s “About You,” A-1 juxtaposes the highs and lows of an individual that’s over-exposed and ultimately engulfed in drug culture. “The beat is low and steady, a perfect platform for A-1’s rhymes to creep and hit from verse to verse,” Noisey added. “A-1 manages to keep his rhymes succinct and meaningful without making his tracks corny or overwrought. The perfect track ti bump, no matter where you’re at.” Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.
