“Church bells & quiet sounds, tell them quiet down…bow ya head the most high’s around…cocktails, guys & gals, mixed with ties & gowns, hoppin out…my entire sound is how you tryna sound…(Holy Ghost)”
A$AP Rocky has just dropped his new album, AT.LONG.LAST.A$AP ot A.L.L.A., & it a good one. He packed a lot of punch into this record & it definitely stands above a lot of what is being released.
The content is a combination of many sounds, from 80s & 90s Hip Hop to Blues to Rock to Soul, he has created what could easily be the soundtrack to a gangsta & sure to be classic hood movie. The production is amazing, the lyrics are on point & it has that feel so many great albums have: being both reminiscent of the past & projecting to the future. From deep emotional tracks to more upbeat bangers for the club. It’s one of those Hip Hop albums you have to pluck out of the pack & designate as a while different league.
I’m sure I’ll be playing this one for quite some time. I have already been looping it since I first listened. The album features quite a few songs with Joe Fox, as well as, Bones, Future, M.I.A., Kanye West, Juicy J, UGK, James Fauntleroy, Lil Wayne, Rod Stewart, Miguel, Mark Ronson, Mos Def, A-cyde, & A$AP Yams. My personal faves are Fine Whine, L$D, Excuse Me, Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye 2, WavyBone, & Jukebox Joints. The whole album rides tho.
Make sure you listen to A.L.L.A. & check out A$AP Rocky’s latest single L$D below:
