Somehow in the past two years, hip hop has taken the mantle from other music genres as the reigning king of up and coming music. Kendrick Lamar and Frank Ocean dominated last year. Odd Future, for all the vitriol directed towards them, was big news two years ago. Hell, even R.Kelly has taken time off from pissing on teenagers to go headline Pitchfork this year.
One of the forerunners to lead the charge in 2013 is Rakim Mayers aka A$AP Rocky. A$AP has been steadily building up hype in the past years with assorted singles and mixtapes, leading to the release of his debut record Long.Live.ASAP last month. Filled with guest appearances with everyone from Drake to Skillrex to Florence Welsh, Long.Live.ASAP strikes me as an album built for success.
