Why You Should Follow Him: ASAP Rocky has been the talk of the town over the past week. Ever since the release of his video for Purple Swag, people have gone as far as to say he’s the savior of NY rap. I don’t know if I could full on agree with that, but his Max B meets west coast style has me paying close attention. His subject matter isn’t that of the typical NY rapper either, rather a more vulgar/less famous Drake. Expect to hear about drug use, women, and anything else you can fit into that party lifestyle. Finally, the kid has that classic Harlem look that make’s him stand out in any video that he’s been in. While there isn’t much music out, he has the tastemaker crowd waiting in anticipation for the release of his new mixtape Live Love A$AP. In the mean time, we’ll all be pressing play on that Purple Swag video another 20 times a week.
