A$AP Rocky is currently over in the UK promoting his newly released debut album, Long.Live.A$AP. Aside from guesting on Kiss FM and Tim Westwood’s show, the Harlem native also made a visit to BBC Radio 1Xtra, where he performed for their famed Live Lounge segment. For his cover, Flacko chose Gnarls Barkley‘s classic “Who’s Gonna Save My Soul,” and although protesting that he “can’t sing for ish, y’all” throughout, his rapping was assured as always.

A$AP Rocky‘s Long.Live.A$AP album leaked this week–a whole month ahead of schedule–so it’s no surprise he’s reacting pretty fast with the promotional material.

It seems like this pretty enticing remix of “Pretty Flacko” was eventually left off the recently leaked Long.Live.A$AP due to A$AP Rocky‘s ill feelings towards friend-turned-foe SpaceGhostPurrp (who produced the beat), but whatever, at least we have it now, right? This sounded like a monster of a track when it was first previewed on UStream, and the fully fleshed beast doesn’t disappoint; Rocky sounds fresh from a swag juice skinny dip, Waka‘s just come off a coke line and Pharrell‘s his usual Coolest Motherfucker Alive-self. It’s only Gucci‘s verse which might persuade you to hit the skip button (which is a shame, considering he pipes up around the halfway mark), but a few shots down your neck and you’ll probably find yourself actually enjoying his elementary way with words. Shit, drunk rap is sometimes the best.

We’ve heard of early leaks, but this is pretty ridiculous. Almost a whole month prior to its official release (January 15), A$AP Rocky‘s eagerly awaited debut album, Long.Live.A$AP, has suffered the fate of the leak, and surprise, surprise, the Internetz has already dug into on the most appetizing item on the menu: “1Train” featuring Kendrick Lamar, Joey Bada$$, Yelawolf, Danny Brown, Action Bronson & Big K.R.I.T.
Posse cuts have become more synonymous with major–and seriously monotonous–DJ Khaled-funded anthems (“Welcome to My Hood,” “All I Do Is Win,” “I’m So Hood”) in recent years, so not only is it refreshing to see a rap star usher some fresh new faces into the spotlight, but also help craft a true hip-hop posse cut that is fucking dope.
The seven MCs–a group in which the host doesn’t even take the gold ribbon for best verse–drop dimes over a boom-bap beat courtesy of Hit-Boy, who’s truly cementing his status as the most versatile producer in popular music right now.
Give “1Train” a spin below–come on, you know you ain’t waiting a whole month.

We won’t lie, Big Boi’s existing Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors singles, “She Said OK,” “Gossip” and “Mama Told Me,” have hardly held our attention these past few months, which is why this new drop felt very necessary. Bolstered by one of hip-hop’s products, A$AP Rocky, and indie pop outfit Phantogram, “Lines” is sure to be one of Daddy Fat Sax’s standout records. His LP arrives December 11.

Greg Grease – “Forward”
