ASAP Rocky – “Wassup” Video (NSFW)

ASAP Rocky inhabits his usual smoked-out aesthetic in the new clip for LIVELOVEA$AP cut "Wassup," albeit this time with a little more cashflow/production values. It's a clip that echoes a lot of rap video cliches, but in his loving and reverential way. NSFW as there are some boobs. Check it below. More »

Schoolboy Q – “Hands On The Wheel” (Feat. ASAP Rocky) Video

We're comfortable stating that we're pretty into that Schoolboy Q record -- Scott totally freaked out about the Genesis sample ("Firth Of Fifth"), in case you were wondering -- so it was exciting to see that one of its standouts, "Hands On The Wheel" got a video treatment. It features that pretty motherfucker, ASAP Rocky. More »

ASAP Rocky – “Celebration”

Now that he's signed a big record deal and released his ghostly, aquatic mixtape LIVELOVEA$AP, Harlem up-and-comer ASAP Rocky is suddenly sounding happier than we're used to hearing him. On the new track "Celebrate," he's positively triumphal, luxuriating in his success while riding an airy synth. Give it a listen below. More »

ASAP Rocky – “Pretty Flacko”

Two days ago, quarterback Joe Flacco led my motherfucking Baltimore Ravens to a crushing, dominant win over the Cincinnati Bengals, capturing the AFC North title in the process and giving me hope that we'll all be flipping over cars in my hometown in a month or so. I don't know if he's a Ravens fa… More »

ASAP Rocky – “Demons” Video

Harlem rap insurgent ASAP Rocky has already been responsible for "Purple Swag" and "Peso," two of the best and most evocative music videos of the year. His new clip for "Demons," a cloudy-brained Clams Casino collab from his LIVELOVEA$AP mixtape, isn't on the level of those two, but it does work as a nicely murky… More »

Danny Brown – “Blunt After Blunt” Video

Here's something I had to learn to hard way: No matter how much of a stoner you think you are, you should never, under any circumstances, smoke weed with rappers. You just can't handle it; I'm sorry. You will inevitably find yourself rolled into a ball on the carpet, wishing you could remember your ow… More »

ASAP Rocky – “Peso (Star Slinger Refix)”

I'm not sure why Star Slinger keeps tackling songs that are pretty perfect just the way they are, but I admire the kid's moxie. Check out his latest remix, this time a re-configured version of ASAP Rocky's syrupy "Peso," after the jump. More »

Mixtape Of The Week: ASAP Rocky LIVELOVEA$AP

For whatever reason, Halloween was the day when just about half the rappers currently working decided to release mixtapes. As luck would have it, Halloween was also the day I moved to a new town, which means I still haven't had time to check out too many of those tapes. Already, there's been a whole… More »

Though Harlem rapper ASAP Rocky incited the hype cycle enough to secure $3 million from RCA, the perpetually-delayed release of his debut mixtape LIVELOVEA$AP (as well as, you know, the money) led to a little backlash, leading many to question whether the style-sampling MC was really the "next big thing" or just the latest flavor… More »

ASAP Rocky – “Grippin Woodgrain” (Feat. Seth Narley) and “Bass”

Harlem rapper and much-feted Next Guy ASAP Rocky still has yet to give us his feverishly anticipated LIVELOVEA$AP mixtape, but another loose track of his is floating around internet-land this morning. It's called "Grippin Woodgrain," and it features a classically Texan screwed-up chorus and a lyrical reference to Entourage. It's yet another beguilingly styling ra… More »

CMJ 2011: Class Superlatives & Our Finest Photos

We're on the other side of CMJ now, which you could probably tell by the uptick in the music news cycle, or by some bloggers' (could be any bloggers, no way to know who I am talking about) bleary eyes and corresponding level of risibility. Stereogum threw a couple of parties early on, then shifted… More »

ASAP Rocky – “Out Of This World”

The syrup-addled young New York rap savior ASAP Rocky is enjoying a fresh round of attention now that he's inked his major-label deal. And today, an ASAP track of unknown origins made the internet rounds. "Out Of This World" sounds like an older track, one that ASAP made when he was still trying to succeed… More »

The Creators Project @ DUMBO, Brooklyn, NY 10/15/11

Vice and Intel's second annual Creators Project multimedia showcase moved to Brooklyn this year, opting for the open, scenic beauty of BK's lush Brooklyn Heights neighborhood as opposed to the more cramped MILK Studios setup of last year. But, like last year, this year's event showcased a broad spectrum of critically-respected musicians, both established (Florence… More »

ASAP Rocky Signs To RCA

I'm not really sure why rappers sign to majors anymore, especially someone like 40 Best New Bands of 2011 list member ASAP Rocky, a rapper generating plenty of high-visibility buzz without one (he must not be listening to a lot of Flocka these days). But ASAP Rocky has signed to RCA, which currently falls i… More »

Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire – “R.I.P. Payso”

ASAP Rocky and Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire are the two young rappers currently doing the most to make New York an exciting rap scene again. Except maybe they don't like each other? There's definitely a bit of aggression in eXquire's decision to rap over ASAP's signature track "Peso," to go all rabid-dog on it, and to… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: September 2011

Save a bit of humidity, it is an undeniably autumnal day in NYC. It's gray, it is wet, and it feels positively gauche to jam to anything that would feel right at a beach. So to help to fill the void created by expunging "sunny music" from your daily playlist, and to show solidarity with… More »

ASAP Rocky – “Trilla”

At his core, Harlem rapper and Stereogum40 artist ASAP Rocky is something of a revivalist. In an era where regional connotations are increasingly meaningless, ASAP Rocky is the latest champion of the slurped-up Houston rap perpetuated most famously by DJ Screw and UGK, but his revitalization is definitely not rehash. "Trilla" is another track i… More »

Stereogum’s 40 Best New Bands of 2011

Last year, right around the time summer turned to fall, we at Stereogum published our list of the 40 best new bands of the year. The idea of a "new" band is a pretty nebulous one, since many of the kids we listed were probably planning out their musical ventures in their basements since they… More »

Smoke DZA – “4 Loko” (Feat. ASAP Rocky) Video

Smoke DZA and ASAP Rocky are two Harlem rappers who don't sound like Harlem rappers. Aesthetically and philosophically, both guys are more aligned with scenes from points South. Smoke DZA is a frequent Curren$y collaborator and a big part of the Southern stoner-rap orbit. ASAP Rocky, meanwhile, is an intriguing newcomer whose viral-hit videos for… More »
