Anyone who considers themselves a rap enthusiast must be encouraged by the influx of new talent streaming in. Harlem rapper Rakim Mayers, better known as A$AP Rocky, is making a strong push toward the front of the line. He's establishing himself in the industry the way many of his brethren are: with mixtapes. Kendrick Lamar and Frank Ocean, most notably, have presaged highly successful albums with independently released mixtapes. Most notable is Rocky's $3 million record deal with Sony/RCA subdivision Polo Grounds Music, the fruit of which is his major label debut, LongLiveA$AP.

One thing this album does not do is try to be intellectual. In strong contrast to recent albums predicated delivering sociopolitical messages, like Killer Mike's R.A.P. Music, or albums with strong thematic elements like Kendrick Lamar's Good kid m.A.A.D. city, Rocky's record doesn't make an effort to be lyrically deep. Rocky himself puts it best on album closer "Suddenly," declaring "don't view me as no conscious cat, this ain't no conscious rap/f*** the conscious crap, my mac'll push your conscious back."

What LongLiveA$AP does do is display Rocky's boundless skill as a rapper. His delivery is loud, forceful and clear; he is able to spit rhymes with great rhythm and flow. It also serves as a great showcase piece for the youth rap movement. LongLiveA$AP rounds up most of the key names being shouted now within the indie community (with the obvious exception of the Odd Future collective).

But it doesn't take long to find Odd Future parallels. Album opener "Long Live A$AP" is an ominous and foreboding track that shows off Rocky's sense of paranoia. He asks, "who's that looking in my window with a pistol to my curtain?

I had always wondered who this "A$AP Rocky" Was for years, And who "A$AP Mob" was. I'd seen the names everywhere on the web. Finally one day i listened to "Goldie" and "Pesos" I was like wow. His sound is super unique, the production quality is dope and i'm impressed. My favorite track would have to be "Long Live A$AP" But the whole album is 100% to me. I was able to listen to it with no skips. Which is rare now a days. Of course I like some songs more than others but again, the whole album is super solid. He's unique in his image and with his choice of production. Also a talented producer as well :) 5 STARS!

Love the album. But this vinyl pressing is just not up to snuff. There are lots of hisses when listening. Doesn't compare to the digital copy on my computer.

I wanted to enjoy this purchase (I mean just the color of the vinyl is awesome). But I had to return it. I'll stick to my digital files.

This is a pretty good album. It's got a ton of variety in terms of different kinds of hip-hop. Overall I'd say it has distinctly Wu-Tang feel to it, which is great if you like them. I didn't realize until I opened it, but it's on clear orange vinyl. It's very distinctive and I am a sucker for colored vinyl.

I seem to always get records from Amazon with a slight warp in them, but luckily I have a good cartridge that tracks well even over the bumps.

Live.Love.A$AP is better than this, IMO. but that's mostly just the beats. A$AP himself is consistent. of course, i don't really like his music for the raps, i like it for the beats. thus this one feels like a bit of a waste of money to me, when you can get the free mixtape that has way nicer beats

Great album with a blend of sounds Houston screwed and chopped meets a native New Yorker to create a unique sound in my opinion. The track with Schoolboy Q entitled PMW is one of my favorites a long with Phoenix. The album is a good listen.

Much cleaner and smoother sound than on Live Love A$AP. Skrillex was brilliant on Wild for the Night! 1Train is straight up old school east coast hip hop at its finest. Thanks for bringing it back, A$AP!
