HIP-HOP | A-F-R-O 

Hip-hop traditionalist A-F-R-O (All Flows Reach Out) is a talented young emcee from Los Angeles. In 2014, at only 16 years old, he gained national recognition by winning a YouTube freestyle competition held by his favorite rapper, R.A. the Rugged Man — now his mentor and this tour's headliner. The "old soul" rapper pays his respects to his heroes of the "Golden Age of Hip-Hop" era by continuing to push the art of style and flow. His low, bassy, hit-your-face voice and intricate wordplay is a breath of fresh air in a time of mumble rap and autotune.

A-F-R-O performs with R.A. the Rugged Man and Mooney Faugh on Monday, June 4, at Funk 'N Waffles, 204 North Water Street. 7 p.m. $20-$25. funknwaffles.com; a-f-r-o.bandcamp.com.
