A$AP Rocky "Long Live A$AP"
Published Dec 20, 2012A$AP Rocky's long-delayed LongLiveA$AP LP leaked earlier this week, but those of you polite enough to wait for the record's January 15 due date are being treated to an official SoundCloud stream of the opening title cut courtesy of the rapper himself.
It's a powerfully ominous start to the set, apparently, with wind storm sounds and murky horror synths providing the background noise beneath Pretty Flacko's paranoid rhymin' ("Strangers make me nervous / Who's that peekin' in my window with the pistol to my curtain"). The chorus hook temporarily softens things up with some falsetto vocals and nimble guitar picking.
A video for the track will apparently debut this Sunday (December 23) via MTV2.
