Impressive freshman feat,
This review is from: Long.Live.A$AP (Deluxe) (Audio CD)
For an album that leaked a month before it was to be released, I am happy that he hit number one, and that he hit pretty good numbers. On to the album.
A lot of people talk about how this album is terrible but this album is way than people give it a chance to, and it compares well to the works of other rap artists that are currently out. You have to give credit where credit is due. Upon listening to his mixtape, you can definitely tell that this man is very lyrical when it comes rapping. Not every rapper is like that, or can accomplish that style, technique, trait, whatever you wish to call it. Unlike those who just talk about money, drugs, the trap, etc, this man knows how to use his words and other rappers really are just talking about "whack" stuff. With him and artists like Kendrick Lamar making moves, people should reconsider the monotony they put out, and how a lot of people (fans at least) are not looking for the same old anymore.
Some of the stuff A$AP talks about surrounds him finally making it in the music industry. This is one of the best albums I've heard in awhile; it really has good lyrics and the substance is there, in addition to good beats which in my opinion puts this album up there as one of the most impressive thus far, and it's only a few weeks into the new year.
