A$AP Rocky Drops ‘Long Live A$AP’ Song; Video Premiering on Sunday
If you didn’t know by now, A$AP Rocky‘s debut album ‘Long.Live.A$AP’ has sprung a leak, much to his record label’s chagrin. However, the Harlem rhyme-spitter is taking it stride and is moving forward with his second single, the title track, ‘Long Live A$AP.’
Produced by Jim Jonsin and Rico Love, the song feels like doomsday with its bombastic bass drops, gun blasts and screwed-up vocals. But the sound takes a moody turn on the chorus with its eerie guitars and a melodic falsetto singing, “Who said you can’t live forever, lied / Of course, I’m living forever.”
On the track, Rocky spits paranoic rhymes about prison, purple sipping, robbery and gun-toting kids. “My Santa Claus was missing, catch you slippin’ then it’s Christmas,” he raps detailing his former days as a stick-up kid. “Motherf— a wishlist, my ghetto was my ambition.”
If you love the hard-hitting song, then you’re going to enjoy his accompanying music video. Rocky will premiere the clip on MTV 2 at 11AM EST on Sunday (Dec. 23). “It’s going to be stunning, wait till you see it,” he told PopCrush exclusively.
Despite the album leaking online, Rocky’s ‘Long.Live.A$AP.’ sounds like it’s going to be one of the biggest rap albums of 2013. You can officially cop the LP on Jan. 15.
