If David’s well-spoken sentiment on A$AP Rocky was the first time you really dug into Harlem’s promising mic terror, here’s some more homework. Put on a pedestal for more than just making a point, the versatile personality from Manhattan’s most historically rich Hip-Hop community carries such a melting pot of styles, listening to just a single one of his songs can evoke hints of Paul Wall, Fresh-N-Bone or Big Sean. Not a bad combo, by any means, but the rub is clear.
Either way, on the two latest leaks from his upcoming LiveLoveA$AP mixtape, A$AP’s breaking down more of the good he’s becoming known for. Not to be confused with anything MMG-affiliated, “Trilla” is a well-sanctioned, leaned-back posse cut between close associates of his crew. While “Back To The Future” finds the French-braided upstart chronicling a hazed out night amongst tail.
He might be from Harlem World, but the kid’s far from Ma$e.
