A$AP Rocky Bringing His Own Brand.
Most hip hop fans are on either side of the mainstream-underground split, but A$AP Rocky thinks he can transcend that phenomenon. Rocky expects to be on the radio with his new album “LongLiveA$AP”, but it won’t be the bullsh** you normally hear on the radio.
“I’d put out some whack, slow sh**, straight up. I’ll just put out a song saying nothing – call me Pootie Tang,” joked Rocky to Billboard Magazine. “Putting out that motherf***ing tastemaker music that we do. we change the sound of mainstream. the mainstream isn’t gonna be that bullsh** that you hear on the radio all day. The mainstream’s gonna be that A$AP — we’re gonna change the whole world with this sh*t. I have a dream! I’m the trill Martin Luther King, straight up.”
A$AP Rocky has a lot to live up to following his fantastic “LiveLoveA$AP” mixtape, but considering the quality of the first single Goldie, most fans have faith.
