A$AP Rocky: “A pretty Mother F*****’’

14.09.2018

Well, no surprise there we guess.

We wanted to title this editorial on who has become one of our favourite rap artists – after the legendary ones – with one of his most famous quotes. Yes, he is pretty and he’s tough too though: A$AP Rocky might be famous for his fashion sense and love for clothing, but it is his dope lyrics that make our heads turn. Not just that, video after video, whether it’s 2015 we are looking at or some of his latest works such as Potato Salad, more credits should be given to him and his creativity.

You might find him on Insta under the alias ‘Pretty Flacko’, a name that comes from his pseudonym of producer Lord Flacko, but born and bred New Yorker Rakim Mayers is recognisable on the net for many more things other than his names.

Asap Rocky’s braids are a signature trademark on that Mother F****** pretty face of his, as well as the cheeky stare and melancholic allure he poses with.

You can find Asap Rocky on Snapchat too, duetting with Tyler, The Creator as BFFs, making appearances on each other’s stories. And if you are wondering who will be seen tagged as Asap Rocky’s girlfriend, well, nothing has been officially heard from his last relationship with Kendall Jenner.

A$AP Rocky - A$AP Forever ft. Moby

As the first single released from the 2018 album ‘Testing’, this 90s throwback track is one of those ASAP Rocky nostalgic tunes: can you think of anything more nostalgic than Moby’s uber-famous Porcelain – you might remember it for the movie The Beach?

A$AP Rocky - Everyday ft. Rod Stewart, Miguel, Mark Ronson

Some people have watched the video for this song, which incorporates Mark Ronson stroke of genius as well as Rod Stewart iconic voice, and said that A$AP Rocky is one of the most underrated rap artists of today’s scene. We agree with them, and we’d like rap to go this way too.

A$AP Rocky-1 Train ft Kendrick Lamar,Joey Bada$$,YelaWolf, Danny Brown, Action Bronson & Big K.R.I.T

From his solo debut album Long.Live.A$AP, the track puts together an array of MCs that takes you back to D12 in a way, released In 2012, the song was intended – as declared by A$AP Rocky to

make a posse cut that felt like an original ’90s underground track, and I didn’t have to tell anyone what to do

A$AP Rocky - Jukebox Joints (Explicit Version) ft. Joe Fox, Kanye West

Get carried away by the melodic sample of Indonesian song by Rasela, “Doa Untuk Kasih” in what stands as a perfect opportunity to enjoy his ‘singing voice’ – although we do like his rapping one too.

A$AP ROCKY X TYLER THE CREATOR - POTATO SALAD

To say in A$AP Rocky own words ‘It’s so easy to fall in love’ with this tune: Potato Salad might the coolest thing after the ‘Blonde Salad’, especially for the line

 Bad attitude, this ain’t a purse, it’s a satchel

Amongst Rocky’s latest releases this catchy tune and likewise well produced video, a trademark of the artist as he’s also a producer and director.

A$AP Rocky - L$D (LOVE x $EX x DREAMS)

The music video for this Rocky song might be indeed one of the dopest things ever. And no, Rocky, I guess the new you ISNT just gon’ take some gettin’ used to.

These are the best tunes from Asap Rocky, but are waiting to see what’s to come this 2018.
