Representing San Francisco and the Bay area Victor Vazquez aka Kool A.D. first came to fame with fellow rapper Heems and hype man Dapwell in Queens based rap act Das Racist. After they disbanded in 2012 both Kool A.D. and Heems went in their separate directions, in a busy first year Kool A.D. released two mixtapes The Palm Wine Drinkard and 51, he kept up the pace in 2013 releasing another two 63 and 19 (the latter 3 mixtapes named after San Francisco bus lines). On a sweltering summer day in June Kool A.D. stopped by our basement studio with his DJ and visual guitarist to give us a run down of tracks from both 51 and 19.
