A$AP Rocky impressive on debut album PDF Print E-mail

asap_rockey.jpg(Associated Press) -  Rapper A$AP Rocky meshes his laid-back lyrical persona with a melodic sound, delivering an impressive piece of work with just a few flaws on his debut album, Long.Live.A$AP.

Much of the 12-track set is an easy listen with solid production from Jim Jonsin, Hit-Boy, T-Minus and Clams Casino.

The 24-year-old, who hails from Harlem, N.Y., raps with abstract rhymes and metaphors that are easy to grasp on songs such as Goldie and Phoenix. He shows an abundant amount of bravado on LVL, declaring his emergence as hip-hop’s next big star.

And he holds his own on the catchy hit, (Expletive) Problems, which features Drake, Kendrick Lamar and 2 Chainz.

The only thing missing from Long.Live.A$AP is a theme or story line to help us learn more about A$AP Rocky and what he stands for as an artist.
