A$AP Rocky debuted his new single "Multiply" tonight, along with a video for it. It's the first solo track we've heard from Flacko since his debut album last year, LONG.LIVE.A$AP, which made him and the A$AP crew into certifiable rap stars.

Sam Smith – “I’m Not The Only One” (Feat. A$AP Rocky)

Although he entered the spotlight by singing Disclosure's monster jam "Latch," Sam Smith has become such an adult contemporary singer lately that it's kind of crazy to think about a rapper throwing a verse on one of his songs. But that's what A$AP Rocky has done, lending typically slinky bars to the beginning of Smith'… More »

A$AP Mob – “Hella Hoes” Video

Danny Brown wasn't thrilled to have his verse removed from "Hella Hoes," the new A$AP Mob single, and it's easy to understand why. For one thing, it's unprofessional to delete a verse without telling the person who made that verse. For another, it's a fun, splenetic song that would've only sounded better with Brown o… More »

A$AP Mob – “Hella Hoes”

Back in spring, Harlem's A$AP Mob crew was planning to release a compilation called L.O.R.D.. For whatever reason, it never happened. But now, we've at least got a new posse cut from the crew.

Lykke Li – “No Rest For The Wicked” (Feat. A$AP Rocky)

Lykke Li's "No Rest For The Wicked" is great as-is, without extraneous rap verses. But hey, rappers have been loving Lykke at least since Drake sampled "Little Bit" in 2009, and A$AP Rocky already has a track record with (to borrow Tom's description) "cinematically bummed" female singers -- note his bizarre turn as JFK i… More »
