April 17, 2012 SOUNDS ⁄  GOLDIEROCK$: A$AP Rocky


Late last night, pretty Harlem-repping muthafucka A$AP Rocky ripped the panties off western civilization for some heavy foreplay with the debut of Goldie, the first single from his forthcoming major label album, LongLiveA$AP. Produced by Hit-Boy, the SoCal beatsmith behind Niggas in Paris, it first appeared on NYC’s Hot 97 FM. Rocky revealed that the track’s original title was Cristal – in reference to the time the flashy dudes first met, supping champagne at his LA studio with Chase N Cashe and G-mo Drake (a habit we just call ‘breakfast’).

While Goldie leans more towards the club, Rocky doesn’t sacrifice the haziness that made him famous, but maybe it’s only a matter of time. Collabs on the summertime scheduled LP include snappy dresser Pharell, and his “dream girl” aka boxtox buzzbabe Lana Del Ray.
