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. Fortunately,… More »

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

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 you another one: The… More »

Fat Joe – “Yellow Tape” Video (Feat. Lil Wayne, A$AP Rocky & French Montana)

Last week, we posted “Yellow Tape,” a new paint-by-numbers Fat Joe posse cut most notable for marking A$AP Rocky’s entry into the A-list featured-rappers roundtable. Now the song has a video, and the most notable thing about it is French Montana’s neon-silk Versace ski mask. But, I mean, that is notable. Eif Rivera directs. Watch… More »

Fat Joe – “Yellow Tape” (Feat. Lil Wayne, A$AP Rocky & French Montana)

Good news, everyone! A$AP Rocky is now a big enough deal that he can be one of several randomly-assembled rap stars who show up on thrown-together Fat Joe posse cuts. On Joe’s new single “Yellow Tape,” Rocky seems to blend in some completely that I didn’t notice his verse starting at first, and you tell… More »

ASAP Rocky – “F*ckin Problem” (Feat. 2 Chainz, Drake And Kendrick Lamar)

Earlier today, ASAP Rocky dropped the star-studded, Noah “40” Shebib-produced cut “F*ckin Problem,” a sneering track featuring verses from 2 Chainz, Drake and Kendrick Lamar. Can you get more “2012” than that? I guess Kanye tried but it was kind of a mixed bag. Hear it at Complex. More »

DJ Muggs – “Dank” (Feat. A$AP Rocky)

Two decades ago, DJ Muggs, as the musical member of Cypress Hill, did a whole lot to push rap production further. And on his new free EP Sound Clash Business, Muggs shows that he’s still fully capable of playing around with different sounds. EP opener “Dank” throws guest A$AP Rocky’s voice in a bunch of… More »

Mixtape Of The Week: A$AP Mob Lord$ Never Worry

When A$AP Rocky first went viral last year, with the “Purple Swag” and “Peso” videos, he came off like a mesmerizing alien hybrid, an extraterrestrial visiter who’d somehow learned about Earth culture entirely from fashion Tumblrs and Boot Camp Clik videos. And even though he was making music that was, on its most basic level,… More »

Watch A$AP Rocky On Fallon

Last night, A$AP Rocky went on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to play “Goldie,” a performance where Rocky never seems to get comfortable. That’s probably because he’s focusing so hard on the many new lyrics of the swear-free version of “Goldie.” Thing is, the censor didn’t get them all! Watch the performance below. More »

A$AP Rocky – “Purple Kisses” (NSFW)

In his self-directed video for “Purple Kisses,” a song from the forthcoming A$AP Mob group mixtape Lord$ Never Worry, crew leader A$AP Rocky enjoys his time as the sole dude in a drugged-out orgy, and the general lack of punches pulled makes this one very, very NSFW. The song’s hook is a screwed-up sample of… More »

A$AP Rocky – “Pussy Money Weed”

Just last week, we started things off with “Bath Salt,” the first single from A$AP Rocky and A$AP Mob’s forthcoming group album. This week, we’ve got a brand-new A$AP Rocky track, though we don’t know if it’ll end up on the A$AP Mob album or what. This one has the wonderfully generic title “Pussy Money… More »

A$AP Rocky Covers “Pumped Up Kicks”

Today, A$AP Rocky did a live session for Zane Lowe’s BBC1 Radio show, where he played a rendition of his single “Goldie.” But luckily enough, for all of us, that wasn’t it! He also covered “Pumped Up Kicks.” He doesn’t know many of the words, though if I had to guess “Which critically-approved rapper i… More »

For a while now, A$AP Rocky has been promising a new compilation album from his A$AP Mob crew. That album is apparently still in the works, and last night, they posted the bloodthirsty first single. It’s called “Bath Salts,” and it brings Rocky and his crew’s Baltimore affiliate A$AP Ant together with Flatbush Zombies, the… More »

We’ve already seen the extended trailer for Lana Del Rey’s “National Anthem,” which features ASAP Rocky as John F. Kennedy and LDR as some sort of Jackie Kennedy/Marilyn Monroe hybrid. And now we’ve got the full eight-minute video for the transcendently dumb song, which is everything you’d expect. And the video, through good performances and… More »
