With aggressive, rhythmic hooks and an impossibly high energy level, AD is a rising star on the L.A. gangsta rap scene. His considerable talents level up when paired with the production of Sorry Jaynari, a member of the League of Starz production collective and a master at evoking classic West Coast music with rich and textured productions. On his latest video single, AD stands up for the people on the Westside with a powerful message: “#CripLivesMatter.” Featuring a guest verse from the acclaimed rapper G Perico, “#CripLivesMatter” is a cautionary tale for those who are not cut out for the gangster life and a screed against the discriminatory cops of the LAPD. Premiered today by XXL, the clip for “#CripLivesMatter” is a rowdy affair, with many tight close-ups on AD and his cohorts, as they dance, mob, and crip walk in front of projections of scenes from the hood. “#CripLivesMatter” follows the OT Genasis-featuring “Basic“ as the latest single from The Last of the ’80s, the upcoming collection of West Coast bangers from AD and Sorry Jaynari.
