A$AP Rocky as a performer he is quite charismatic. Things move fast in today’s music industry. Bands or artists do not have to tour in small clubs or as opening acts for years before they gain commercial success. Because of technology artists are now releasing their own music digitally (cheaply) and becoming hits right off the hop. A$ap Rocky is one of those types of acts. In 2011 he released a mixtape and then in 2013 he was opening for mega-star Rihanna on her world tour playing to tens of thousands of people at every stop. Then came 2015’s At.Long.Last.A$AP and most recently Testing. He has worked with plenty of other artists like Thirty Seconds to Mars, Lana Del Rey, Alicia Keys, and Tyler, the Creator.
His raps are filled with equal parts bravado and small town Midwest sensibilities. Moments of he’s young, hot and rich and he knows it followed by some humble pie. He is a guy who not easily figured out and that usually leads to interesting songs. Unlike many who fall on their faces A$ap Rocky has demonstrated that he is buzz worthy and an artist to keep our eyes and ears on in the future.
