Harlem rapper A$AP Rocky has been making a lot of waves in the web-o-sphere, including a tour with Drake, not to mention a $3 Million record deal. So he had quite a bit to live up to with his debut mixtape.
However, it almost seems like he didn’t hear the hype. For most people $3 Million would be a gauntlet. Most people would have something to prove. Not A$AP. Who, along with his crew of beat-makers (Clams Casino being among them) mash together drudgy, smoke-and-syrup filled Houston rap with East Coast lyrical flow.
It remains to be seen whether A$AP can stick around for the long haul or if he will blow by like most buzz-darlings.
