"Long Live A$AP"

A$AP quickly puts to rest any question of whether he'd abandon his spacey, artsy sounds of his breakthrough mixtape with the album's title track. The beat switches from insistent 808s and piano tinkles that sound like they're from the score to Eyes Wide Shut, transforming into a spooky chorus anchored by guitars and an ethereal sung hook. Rocky remains as charismatic and unflappable as ever, sticking to his usual boasts. The effect is like Three-Six Mafia moving to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, in the year 2050.
