A$AP Rocky – “Thuggin’ Noise (It’s Hemsworth, Bitch Edit)”

Canadian producer Ryan Hemsworth's latest remix sees A$AP Rocky rapping over a Britney Spears track. On "Thuggin' Noise (It's Hemsworth, Bitch Edit)," Hemsworth interpolates Rocky's raps on "Thuggin' Noise" (from A$AP Mob's 2012 mixtape Lord$ Never Worry) with the instrumental from Spears' "Everytime."

Stereogum Monthly Mix: July 2013

I don't want to bum anybody out, but summer's almost over. With an emphasis on almost, meaning anything can still happen (aside from reclaiming that unbridled feeling of summer's start and infinite possibilities; we're definitely in the zone of finitude, with all its attendant reminders of our own corporeal mortality, now)! LIVE IT UP! Really. More »

A$AP Ferg – “Shabba” (Feat. A$AP Rocky) Video

Virtually every A$AP Mob video flips old rap-video cliches, pushing them into luxuriant absurdity, and the video for "Shabba," the new track from A$AP Ferg and A$AP Rocky, is no exception. If anything, it seems a bit more self-conscious than many of them. The clip has Ferg wearing many different forms of finery, Rocky… More »

A$AP Ferg – “Shabba” (Feat. A$AP Rocky)

We've been waiting for months for A$AP Ferg, the hard-barking pitbull from A$AP Mob, to release his Trap Lord mixtape, and the thing will finally come out next month. We've posted Ferg's "Work," as well as his all-star "Work" remix and the "Persian Wine" video. And now he's linked with his fellow… More »

Watch R. Kelly, Janelle Monáe, Kendrick Lamar, Justin Timberlake Perform At 2013 BET Awards

Last night, BET held its annual awards show, and the broadcast produced a whole lot in the way of highlights. Kendrick Lamar did "Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe" with Erykah Badu singing the chorus and making the recorded version of the song more or less irrelevant, and then returned later to help Miguel with… More »

A$AP Ferg – “Work (Remix)” Video (Feat. French Montana, Trinidad James, Schoolboy Q & A$AP Rocky)

Yesterday, we posted A$AP Ferg's unhinged all-star remix to the 2012 underground hit "Work." And now we get the video, in which Ferg and associates French Montana, Trinidad James, Schoolboy Q, and A$AP Rocky take over Harlem's Rucker Park playground and a soundstage that's been made up to look like an abandoned warehouse.

A$AP Ferg – “Work (Remix)” (Feat. Schoolboy Q, French Montana, Trinidad James & A$AP Rocky)

With last year's blaring, anthemic underground hit "Work," A$AP Ferg became the first non-Rocky A$AP Mob member to break out. And now he's lined up an odd crew of famous rappers to appear on the remix, and what's really interesting is the way recently-minted pop-rap stars French Montana and Trinidad James get just a… More »

Jessie Ware – “Wildest Moments (Remix)” (Feat. A$AP Rocky)

The entire concept of import albums and domestic releases doesn't make a whole lot of sense in an era where everyone downloads everything anyway, but Devotion, the staggering and gorgeous debut album from the British soul singer Jessie Ware, somehow won't get its proper U.S. release for another couple of weeks. And when it… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

I still haven't done the thing I talked about doing last week, opening this column up to late-night peformances or fan-taped camera-phone concert vids. I might still eventually do that, but this turned out to be a very good week for the traditional notions of music videos, and the best one in a while… More »

A$AP Rocky – “Wild For The Night” Video (Feat. Skrillex)

As a rapper, A$AP Rocky's greatest gift is for creating a sticky bad-dream sort of atmosphere. And on Long.Live.A$AP, his debut album, only one song rips right through that carefully cultivated vibe: "Wild For The Night," a blaring dance-rap banger produced by bro-step titan Skrillex. Rocky and the veteran rap video director (and auteur… More »

Watch A$AP Rocky On Letterman With A-Trak, AraabMuzik, DJ Clark Kent

Last night, on the release date of his major label debut Long.Live.A$AP, A$AP Rocky debuted on the Late Show With David Letterman stage in as grand a fashion as possible. Rocky started out his performance perched on a throne, rapping the album's title track. But after the first chorus, the throne disappeared and… More »

A$AP Rocky (Feat. Florence Welch) – “I Come Apart”

A$AP Rocky is joined by siren Florence Welsh for Long.Live.A$AP. bonus cut "I Come Apart." Rocky is no stranger to indie chanteuses, having previously collaborated with Lana Del Rey, as well as appeared in her video for "National Anthem" as JFK. The heartache-heavy track sounds like it could just as easily fit… More »

A$AP Rocky – “Long Live A$AP” Video

Just before Christmas, A$AP Rocky debuted the video for "Long Live A$AP," the hazy title track from his new album. Alongside Samantha Lecca, Rocky directed the video himself, and he plays some sort of debauched king in a desolate, enchanted palace. Watch it below. More »

Premature Evaluation: A$AP Rocky Long.Live.A$AP

There's plenty to discuss on Long.Live.A$AP, A$AP Rocky's official label-sanctioned debut album, but the first thing that jumps out at me is this: The power dymanic in the rapper/dance music producer collaboration has utterly flipped polarities in the last 15 years or so. Once upon a time, say, Redman would, out of nowhere, start rapping… More »

A$AP Rocky – “1Train” (Feat. Kendrick Lamar, Joey Bada$$, Yelawolf, Danny Brown, Action Bronson & Big K.R.I.T.)

On "1 Train," a massive six-minute posse cut from his forthcoming LONGLIVEA$AP album, A$AP Rocky has lined up pretty much every single rapper who's had the internet going nuts in the last couple of years, setting them all up to go in over a slow-rolling Hit-Boy beat. Just recruiting this many great rappers on one… More »

Watch A$AP Rocky Debut “Long.Live.A$AP” On MTV

A$AP Rocky's Long.Live.A$AP is one of Q1 2013's most eagerly awaited albums, and probably the most anticipated hip-hop record since Good Kid m.A.A.d. City, and with its release imminent, the blitz is on in full. Last week we got the video for star-studded single "Fuckin' Problems," and today, A$AP performing the album's title… More »

A$AP Rocky – “Fuckin’ Problems” (Feat. Drake, Kendrick Lamar & 2 Chainz) Video

A$AP Rocky recruited a hell of a lineup for "Fuckin' Problem," the sex-talk posse cut from his forthcoming album LONGLIVEA$AP. And all four guys show up in the brand-new video. It's a pretty bare-bones affair: Some dancers, some fashionable black clothes, some blank backgrounds. And it lives and dies entirely on the rappers' charisma. More »

Big Boi – “Lines” (Feat. A$AP Rocky & Phantogram) (Stereogum Premiere)

Next month, OutKast rapper Big Boi will release his new album Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumors, the follow-up to 2010's excellent Sir Lucious Left Foot. We've already heard a few tracks that could end up on the album: "Gossip," "Mama Told Me," "She Said OK." And now we're happy to bring… More »
