AL 1Thing (@AL_1THING) – Street Pop Vol. 1: New Genre [Mixtape]
Born Robert Alexander Ward, Al 1Thing is a Philadelphia-based rapper, singer and songwriter who is described as the future of Philadelphia’s musical landscape. A Southwest Philly native, Al was raised with street smarts and the ambition to hustle for what he wants.
Al’s musical influences include a plethora of genres and styles. He cites his favorite artists as John Mayer, Pusha T, Pharrell Williams, Maroon 5 and Jay Z, among others. Al has taken these influences and combined them into a new genre of music that his manager, Chad Fain, calls “Street-Pop.” Fain describes Street-Pop as pop melodies and R&B hooks paired with street- based lyrical experiences. This distinct combination, along with Al’s hip-hop swagger and charming personality, separates this up and coming Philadelphia artist from the rest.
