A+ Biography

A+ came into the rap game with a lot going for him. He was one of the youngest rappers who were actually taken seriously by their older peers, and was thought to be one of the more promising future prospects. After his first album, his verse with the Lost Boyz, Canibus, and Redman on "Beasts From the East" helped to firmly establish him as a talented rapper. His second album, Hempstead High, was more mainstream and may have diminished some of his street credit.

Andre Levins' career began in 1995, when he won a national competition sponsored by Def Jam Records. He was discovered by Kedar Massenburg and was the first artist signed to his label, Kedar Entertainment. In 1996, at the age of 13, A+ released his first album, The Latch-Key Child, which featured the hit single "All I See". In 1999 he released Hempstead High. He scored his biggest hit in 1999, with "Enjoy Yourself" (which used samples from "A Fifth of Beethoven" by Walter Murphy which in turn sampled Beethoven's Fifth Symphony), which became an international success. "Enjoy Yourself" was A+'s only hit in the UK Singles Chart and Germany in which he held the number one spot in the chart for numerous weeks.
