I heard Jamal Gutierrez' RA the Rugged Man’s Definition of a Rap Flow competition entry and I stopped my intended Mixtape Monday this week to draw this one up instead. Firstly, kid can rap. Secondly, KID CAN RAP. After the first few rapidly spit verses, I was fumbling with my mouse to rewind the track. 

These 17-year-old hip hop prodigies keep emerging all over the States, but A-F-R-O holds his spot firmly near the front of the line. Listen to the relatively unknown lyricist and check for yourself.
