A$AP Rocky – Long Live A$AP

asap-rocky-long-live-asap1-1357143907

 A couple of weeks left before A$AP Rocky’s major label debut, perhaps first out of 2013’s greatly anticipated records. The album contains an impressive list of collaborators and producers, however the record has already been pushed back a couple of times and there’s no guaranties for it to be out on the set date. The album opener  “Long live A$APkicks off with a 30 seconds bit of Tim Hecker-ish beat-less noise, before a deep bass line kicks in with drums and synths somewhat recalling Mezzanine-era trip hop. The track sees A$AP in his darkest mood yet, but it’s well balanced with a soothing vocal chorus. This track is the best proof yet of why A$AP is at the moment regarded as one of hip hop’s true visionaries.
