Published Dec 12, 2011Undeniably one of the biggest hip-hop heroes of 2011, much has already been said about Harlem rapper A$AP Rocky and his beloved debut LiveLoveA$AP. Having signed a $3 million deal with Polo Grounds/RCA, however, the talented lyricist is hardly slowing down. Instead, he's already deep into his next project.
Whether it drops first as a mixtape or a proper release, A$AP's next release will be called LongLiveA$AP and will come out as a compilation album that represents the entire A$AP crew. The release is expected in the early spring of 2012.
According to a new interview with Los Angeles Leakers, which can be streamed below, A$AP Rocky's debut solo album is also nearing completion. The album will feature production from Hit-Boy, Boi-1da and T-Minus. The project also sees Rocky linking up with Green Lantern and David Banner.
"As a person alone, that guy's prolific," A$AP said of Banner. "He has so much positive energy and wisdom."
On top of all that, A$AP Rocky is aiming to give LiveLoveA$AP a commercial release sometime in the beginning of 2012. Unfortunately, no firm release dates have been revealed for any of these albums.
