When 17-year-old L.A. rapper Jamal Gutierrez (a.k.a. A-F-R-O) released a controversial freestyle on R.A. the Rugged Man's YouTube channel last month, no one seemed to believe the kid's multisyllabic rhymes were spontaneous. "This shit is not only written but very well rehearsed," went the top YouTube comment.
But whether his previous performance was off the top or not, A-F-R-O came back a week later to clear up any doubt that he can actually freestyle. How do you know it's legit? Because the Rugged Man just starts throwing objects—and people—at the kid and watches him incorporate them into his lyrics.
It doesn't sound as polished (or as perfectly planned?) as the first video, but he's still throwing in some multis. Is A-F-R-O for real, or is this just a setup? Would he really lie to us in front of his mom and dad?
