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 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.” The tour kicks off at Buffalo, NY’s First Niagara Center on March 8th and will conclude on May 8th at Brooklyn, NY’s new complex, Barclays Center. Tickets for the tour are currently on sale at www.livenation.com.
