A$AP Rocky Tour
Harlem based rapper, A$AP Rocky, aka "that pretty m*therf-er," said it right when he rapped, "Tell 'em quit the b*tchin' I'ma make it in second" on his mixtape Live.Love.A$AP. And made it he has, with his first studio album, Long.Live.A$AP, debuting at No. 1 on the US charts. (Keep in mind the No. 2 album the same week was Kidz Bop 23 #thedeclineofmusicindustry.) The album, which finally (release dates were pushed back multiple times) dropped on January 15th, was already pretty hyped, especially with A$AP's xXx-tra explicit single, "F*ckin Problems," which when played on Hot 97, having more bleeps than words. In addition to A$AP's smooth flows, the album features a slew of hot young rappers including: Schoolboy Q, Santigold, Kendrick Lamar, 2 Chainz, Drake, Danny Brown, and Joey Badass.
Perhaps even more indicative of A$AP's success than the charts (not to suggest that Kidz Bop 23 isn't valid competition), is the fact that he's opening for RIHANNA on her Diamonds World Tour. They definitely had a good vibe going on at the VMAs, and their remix of "Cockiness" is pretty bumping. So check out the schedule below, buy some tickets, and go see one of hip-hop's hottest (in both appearance and skill) duos in action.
