After his 2011 mixtape Live.Love.A$AP, Harlem newcomer became the talk of the music industry. Due to his innovative lyrics and unique sense of style, he was respected by both rappers and fashionistas alike. Rocky rode the wave of fame with ease, and brought all of his experiences to his debut album Long.Live.A$AP – a display of the rapper’s natural ability to experiment with sounds and actually make them sound good.
The title track “Long Live A$AP” sounds like it was made in a science lab, accompanied by Rocky’s brazen and confident flow. It has an ominous but childlike quality to it, thanks to the sing-song hook mastered by the rapper himself – “Who said you can’t live forever lied.”
“Goldie” has the title of being one of the rapper’s most swagged-out tracks to dates, with him dropping designer names like Margiela and bragging about his endless supply of money. The Hit-Boy produced beat provides a complimentary backdrop to Rocky’s bold lyrics – “Yes I’m the shit, tell me do it stink? It feel good wakin’ up to money in the bank.” The track shows why he’s one of the most untouchable rappers of the moment.
“PMW (All I Really Need)”, a smoke-easy type of track, features multiple collaborator ScHoolboy Q. It’s a typical rap song where the duo praises the three best things in life: pussy, money, weed. “Fuckin’ Problems” is the most “Pop” song of the album, boasting a killer rap lineup of 2 Chainz, Drake and Kendrick Lamar. It continues to hold strong on the urban airwaves.
