ASAP Rocky - Long.Live.ASAP

ASAP Rocky, New York rapper, is about to release his debut album Long.Live.ASAP, on Jan 15, but it's leaked.



Long.Live.ASAP
Goldie
PMW (All I Really Need) (ft. ScHoolboy Q)
LVL
Hell (ft. Santigold)
Pain (ft. OverDoz)
Fuckin' Problems (ft. Drake, 2 Chainz & Kendrick Lamar)
Wild for the Night
1 Train (ft. Kendrick Lamar, Joey Badass, YelaWolf, Danny Brown, Action Bronson & Big K.R.I.T.)
Fashion Killa
Phoenix
Suddenly

Production from the in-form Hit-Boy (no surprise he's on the best two tracks here), Danger Mouse, Clams Casino, T-Minus. Also Skrillex on Wild for the Night, which is by far the worst track.

I have to admit I've been pretty ignorant of this latest round of young rappers. If 1Bl0oD were here she could tell us more, but this bloke has been getting a hell of a lot of hype in the past few years, and while he's not the greatest rapper this is a pretty impressive debut that won me over very quickly. If you're looking for a comparison it sounds like the spaced-out moments of Tyler's Goblin in parts, and has that same deep affected voice all over it, but ASAP is far less obnoxious as a rapper and seems to be less of a misogynist. It's no good kid, m.A.A.d city, but it is the best hip-hop record of 2013 so far.

Goldie has been out for ages and it is dope as fuck, 1 Train is absolutely mental, a modern-day classic.

1 Train (ft. Kendrick Lamar, A$AP, Joey Bada$$, Yelawolf, - YouTube

There's even a reference to Nelly's Flap Your Wings on one of the tracks.

Anytime I see something written about this guy, I see the dollar sign and think it's laz's way of saying this guy sold out. And I cease to care. But now I actually know what it is, I care even less.

The Skrillex track has early dibs on shittiest song of 2013.

Really not a bad album though, the Clams tracks are great like always.

It is truly awful. Pitchfork, of course, liked it.

IWB I had the two confused for longer than I care to admit.

I refuse to put $ symbols in any of these people's names. It annoys the shit out of me.

I know it's an easy target for mockery when I've said I've watched seasons 1-3 of glee, but one of the funnier things in that show was the completely out of touch principal calling Kesha "ke dollar sign ha". Rappers/pop stars using non-letters is incredibly lame. It's up there with parents putting random punctuation in their kids' names in stupidity a far as I'm concerned.

I'm at work, and when I went to write up a report for this woman who defied at least two laws of physics in the way she crashed her car, I noticed that the last report I wrote on this computer was for a kid named Da'von. I remember that kid, I remember wanting to punch his mother when she spelled his name. Oh, and they were white.

On second thought, a skinny white kid from Australia commenting on the names of black American rappers is kinda lame too.

Anyway just enjoy the damn album peeps.

I read this thread title and thought that Rocky had died. Then I thought hang on, Rocky Balboa is a fictional character from a bunch of movies.

The only one as far as I'm concerned. Never even listened to The Hybrid.
