Published Dec 03, 2012Harlem rapper A$AP Rocky has spent most of 2012 delaying LongLiveA$AP, the follow-up to his career-making LiveLoveA$AP mixtape. Now, however, the rapper has supposedly let loose the album's release date.
Taking to his Twitter, the rapper shared that the album will be released on January 15. He also shared the above album artwork, which bears a VHS-referencing glitch and Rocky draped in an American flag.
Earlier this year, Rocky explained the delay to Wild 94.9 [via Miss Info] with the following explanation:
The issue with my album is I got things on it that's so out of this world that it's taking so long to get mastered. That's the issue, and I refuse to take anything off. It's complete, everything is being mastered and cleared right now. Its just so hard to get things cleared, because you got to find people to clear samples. It takes a long time and that's why it keeps getting pushed back from Halloween to September 11th. I want to say it's looking like top of the year, first quarter because it makes no sense to put out a album in December.
Tonight, Rocky will hit MTV to debut the new video for his track "Fuckin' Problem." For now, you can stream the song below.
