Long live the A$AP Mob
A$AP Rocky was arguably the most hyped rapper of 2012, having landed a lucrative $3 million record deal, an opening spot on Drake's Club Paradise Tour and a place on the BBC's Sound of 2012 poll, all on the strength of a couple of viral videos. He released two mixtapes - Live. Love. A$AP and a collaborative work with his A$AP Mob, Lords Never Worry - but still, no debut studio album has been put forth by the Mob's ringleader. Until now. After being pushed back a dozen or so time, Long. Live. A$AP is slated for a January 15 release, which brings us to our first wish: We've waited so long for the album, please let it live up to the hype and solidify the A$AP phenomenon as a real sustainable rap thing.
