A$AP Rocky's Dropping Heat Sooner Than You Think: "NEW ALBUM COMING"
New York rapper A$AP Rocky is letting fans know new tunes are on deck. The hip-hop star has updated everyone on a long-awaited ALLA follow-up.
Rocky went to Twitter Thursday (September 14) to promise a new LP.
Recently, A$AP said fans could expect his album to drop before 2018.
"A.S.A.P. It's about to drop. [Before the year's over?] Yeah, for sure. For sure. [A.L.L.A] was ahead of its time. That was abnormal then, but in the near future, now in the present, it's going to be normal, trust me." (Complex)
Earlier this year, A$AP Rocky revealed his interest in recording new music overseas.
So when, exactly, is the new music coming out? "ASAP, no pun intended. The 'Cozy Tapes' stuff [the album from his hip-hop collective A$AP Mob] is coming out first." On Jan. 27 via Twitter, Mayers previewed a track called "Please Don't Touch My Raf." "You know, like Raf Simons. It's a popular hashtag," he noted of the title. For now, he remains in London recording. "It feels like home to me and it's not too far from New York. Then I'm off to Hawaii and a few other places to record, and to Japan to get inspired." (WWD)
A few months ago, A$AP Rocky joined forces with MTV with a multi-year executive deal.
"I think we need to get people more in tune with vignettes, video clips," the musician said in an interview. "That's really going to be my strong suit." MTV has signed A$AP Rocky to a two-year deal under which he will devise original concepts, experiment with programming and various pieces of MTV intellectual property, and develop content for advertisers. He and his company, AWGE, will form a venture called MTV Labs, billed as a "creative incubator" unit. (Variety)
