A$AP Rocky continues to raise buzz for his upcoming album with an official music video for one of the lead singles "Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye 2", which follows up "Multiply". We see some extra lo-fi visuals full of tripped out effects bringing the track to life.
We also hear anothern new song from Rocky previewed half way through the video, the same way this song was previewed at the end of Multiply. The video ends with a tribute image of the recently passed A$AP Yams.

There's something to be said about remixes that take a completely different approach from the original, and that is exactly what we have with this unexpected take on A$AP Rocky’s “F*ckin’ Problem.” Last fall, the talented singer Xavier Dunn did a pretty amazing, laid-back cover of the popular song, and today we bring you a refreshing remix of the cover. Belgium duo Vijay & Sofia Zlatko combined their talents with Denmark producer Kasúal to release an upbeat deep house remix that highlights the vocals and guitar perfectly. Listen and grab a free download below. Enjoy!

A$AP Rocky has just ended the year on one of the best notes possible thanks to a brand new track he just uploaded. The song “Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye 2” is a followup to his 2012 hit, and marks the second new track from his upcoming album set to release in 2015 following “Multiply”. The song produced by Nez and Rio packs a gritty edge for Rocky to come in and lay down some signature flow. Enjoy!

Sam Smith brought out A$AP Rocky tonight during a very special TV performance at the American Music Awards. They performed the A$AP Rocky remix to “Tell Me” that blew up the internet a few weeks back. They are both just as good live performers as they are on record; Sam explodes with passion and Rocky effortlessly delivers his verses. Enjoy the video!
LA trap lords LOUDPVCK have decided to start the holiday season early today with a free drop of their massive bootleg of A$AP Rocky’s “Multiply.” Taking what was a calmer A$AP track, the duo turned up the production by adding new layers of hard hitting drums and deep club shaking bass. Rocky’s vocals always sound great when pitched to a new level and the addition of the extra samples really make this a banger. This track will have you doing trap elbows faster than you can say #HURT. Stream the bootleg below and grab a free download thanks to LOUDPVCK. Enjoy
Earlier this summer we got the newest A$AP Mob song "Hella Hoes" and just recently A$AP Rocky jumped on an official collaboration with Sam Smith, but today we get the first piece of original new music from Rocky and it was worth the wait. After a countdown timer built suspense for it, we get his new song "Multiply" which features Juicy J and has flacko delivering some deadly verses done in his signature A$AP style. The video has some fitting scenes shot in NY with the mob doing their thing shot and directed by Shomi Partwary and A$AP Rocky himself. With the release of the video and song, we can expect the full new album details coming very soon. Listen and watch below and soak in the fact A$AP is back. Enjoy!

After a successful album release with numerous singles, Sam Smith links up with NY rapper A$AP Rocky for an unexpected pairing of styles you won’t be able to get enough of on “I’m Not The Only One” . An incredible organic instrumental acts as the perfect soundtrack for Sam to lay down his signature soulful voice which contrasts with Rocky’s gritty rapping perfectly. This song is being released as a single and will be available at midnight tonight. Enjoy!

Having heard his Flume and Hermitage edit of "Hyperparadise" played out live on multiple occassions this past weekend, crowds and fellow producers are showing the talented Dutchman some serious love. This time around A$AP Rocky's laid out single "Ghetto Symohony" receives the customary chill bass drops and melodic percussion pattern implementation; and fans of the original fear not, the eerily beautiful chorus provided by iconic UK songstress Imogean Heap are still present.

Swedish singer Lykke Li has surprisingly recruited rapper A$AP Rocky to provide an official remix to her recent single "No Rest For the Wicked". A$AP leads in with a quick few words then comes back dropping quite a verse managing to rhyme "Lykke Li" with "Eazy-E" and it's amazing. The song packs chemistry you never saw coming and will have you instantly replaying this for awhile. Stream below and pick up your copy through iTunes

After viewing the track-list for the highly anticipated Divergent Soundtrack, the collaboration bringing A$AP Rocky and Gesaffelstein together peaked our interest greatly as one of rap's biggest faces combines with one of electronic music's finest producers. "In Distress" see's both artists flexing their capabilities as one with A$AP Rocky letting loose a tirade of fresh verses while Gesaffelstein's French electro / techno relatively reserved foundation supples the same level of darkness featured on his debut album Aleph. Stream the track below and pre-order the most hyped motion picture soundtracks of the year here. Enjoy

Very few bands, singers, hip-hop artists or country stars could sell out successive shows within the same city and even fewer could perform such a feat at separate venues, but not many possess the same level of appeal as internationally recognized producer / DJ Skrillex. Earlier this year, the LA native took over the bay area to deliver six b2b shows; bringing together the likes of Samo Soundboy, Claude VonStroke, GTA, A$AP Rocky and a list of others to join him along the way. The Nest HQ documented the experience and have unleashed an official video recap showcasing all the hijinks, bass drops, and that one time Dave Chappelle surfed the crowd mid Skrillex set. Enjoy
