Mix Pick: ASAP Rocky – LiveLoveA$AP
A$AP Rocky (Always Strive and Prosper) is here to grace your ears with LiveLoveA$AP. “LiveLoveA$AP” hit the Internets Oct 31st, in the midst of costume pandemonium, and it fit right in the mix to cap off a night dressed as Dead Presidents collecting candy from babies.
There has been much buzz around the 22-year old rapper, who only wants to touch people, as he shared in an interview with Fader magazine. He heavily reps Harlem, NY but currently rests his head in Elmwood Park, New Jersey with his mother and occasionally band members.
The “Peso” rapper is a new signee of Polo Grounds Music/RCA for allegedly three million dollars. This means, we definitely should be on the watch for his development in the game especially if we recall that Drake’s initial contract was for two million.
A$AP brings a flow injected with that ‘purple swag,’ however, all records are not overly packed with that “stoner flow” which we expect from Wiz, Cudi, Curren$y and others.
Let’s check out some killer lines to get a taste of LiveLoveA$AP:
“Houston Old Head:”
“Life is just a bitch/ a bitch is like a hoe/ hoes want the money, and hoes come and go/ friends turns to foes, and foes they be straight if you listen when yo old head talking you’ll be straight.”
A$AP keeps it simple giving advice on life while effectively condoning listening to your elders, listen and you’ll be straight.
“They say I sound like Andre mixed with Kanye/ a little bit of Max, A little bit of Wiz, a little bit of that/a little bit of this/get off my dick”
He coolly confronts comparisons to others over a liquid bass and kick-drums.
“I smoked away my brain/ I think I’m going dumb/cocaine up on my gums/ I think they going numb”
Honestly, what is better than a picture painted of rockstar-esque life that we wished we could tap into? But, keep it light on the drugs ASAP we didn’t get an album from you yet!
