The Latch-Key Child

The Latch-Key Child is the first album by the child rap prodigy, A+, released in 1996. The title is representative of a large number of children and adolescents in Hempstead, New York (a latchkey kid is English vernacular for a child whose parent or parents are out at work when he/she returns home from school). Despite his age (he was only 13), the subject matter on this album and A+'s sheer lyrical ability is extremely mature. He touches on many topics relative to minority youths in Hempstead's overtly urbanized suburbs. A+'s lyrical talent and conscious and aware subject matter on this album was such that it has been compared to artists twice his age at the time (ie. Method Man, Nas etc.). "All I See", the single that introduced A+ to the world was the first single from this album.
