In his reinterpretation of the sci-fi cult classic Repo Man, San Francisco rapper A-1 soars above his city in the new visual for “Unpredictable (The Repo Man),” which debuted via The FADER. The song, off his Thurlian mixtape, has A-1 adding his rhymes to a beat by Mr. Carmack, who said, “I shot him the track and a year later he sent me a finished version and it was tight, I loved it.”
The visual is “based on the last scene of Repo Man, where the main character hops into an alien car and rides off into the abyss of the city night,” A-1 explained, adding, “I had never even seen the movie until a couple of days before we shot the video.” With his signature quirky rhymes like “The whole Bay know I’m popping like I opened up a Pringles can,” A-1 presents a laid-back, West Coast vibe to the meditative tune. “A-1 has that kind of screwed-up, comic-book flow that made Kendrick Lamar a beloved, cult figure in rap even before Good Kid M.A.A.D City came out,” Stereogum stated on the track. “He’s splitting the difference between an Italian mother and a Senegalese father, so the fascinating way he morphs rhythms is solely his own.”
