A$AP Rocky Breaks Down New Album Title to GQ

The Harlem MC explains the meaning behind A.L.L.A.

Published March 26, 2015

A$AP Rocky has never been one to be modest, but instead of it being perceived as an air of cockiness it's always been evident that he's a rapper with an amazing fashion sense that's extremely confident. 

After a great show at SXSW, he told Billboard that the title of his new Danger Mouse and A$AP Yams-produced album will be titled A.L.L.A. The meaning was unclear, but he's recently revealed to GQ that the title is a bit more obvious than people may think.

"I'm claiming ownership of my legacy," he told GQ. "Look at it: At.Long.Last.A$AP. A-L-L-A. Like slang for 'Allah.' It's the return of the god MC. I'm named after Rakim, and I'm finally facing what it means: I was born to do this s**t. And I hope I get to do it for a very long time."

Right now the upcoming album has not been given a release date, but it has been confirmed that it will be released in 2015.
