Prominent hip-hop rising star A$AP Rocky will release his highly anticipated Polo Grounds Music/RCA Records debut album, LONG.LIVE.A$AP on January 15th, 2013. The album will feature the buzz worthy “Goldie” and the Noah “40” Shebib produced hit, “F**kin’ Problems” featuring hip-hop elites Drake, 2 Chainz and Kendrick Lamar, which was recently most added at urban and rhythm radio and continues to dominate airwaves.
Executive produced by A$AP Rocky and A$AP Yams, the LONG.LIVE.A$AP release will also feature guest appearances by ScHoolboy Q, Santigold, Joey Bada$$, Yelawolf, Danny Brown, Action Bronson and Big K.R.I.T. A$AP Rocky takes the reins as producer and co-producer on several tracks along with Danger Mouse, Jim Jonsin, Rico Love, Clams Casino, Skrillex, Hit-Boy and more.
The standard version of LONG.LIVE.A$AP is packed with 12 tracks while the deluxe album version will include 4 additional tracks, including “I Come Apart” featuring Florence Welch and “Ghetto Symphony” featuring Gunplay & A$AP Ferg. Both versions of the album will be sold on A$AP Rocky’s official web store at asvpxrocky.com. Tour merchandise, bundle packs and vinyl will also be sold at the newly launched shop.
On the strength of his 2011 self-released mixtape, LIVE.LOVE.A$AP, and his Polo Ground Music/RCA Records debut single, the Hit-Boy produced “Goldie,” the ambitious and charismatic A$AP Rocky has made a global impact with multiple award nominations from MTV Europe Music Awards (EMA) and BET Hip Hop Awards, all enhanced with recognition by national press. The stand-out MC is currently gracing the cover of Complex’s December 2012/January 2013 issue and his sense of style was cited by The New York Times as “…wholly real — it’s how he’s always dressed — and resonates with his indie fan base more authentically than that of other more established musicians.”
The hip hop golden child recently wrapped his sold out headlining LONGLIVEA$AP tour and will be the special guest on global superstar Rihanna’s “DIAMONDS WORLD TOUR.”
