There’s excitement about the Harlem kid who unapologetically wears plaits and pushes fashion boundaries by fearlessly rocking a skirt. Almost a full month before A$AP Rocky‘s long awaited LongLiveASAP his full album leaked to his disappointment. It’s expected for an album to leak a week prior to release, but a full month is a devastating blow to a new artist. When your entire LP leaks individual songs will soon follow. “I Come Apart,” a bonus track featuring Florence Welch of Florence & The Machine hit the ‘net today showcasing one of the many experimental sounds he toys with.
He opens sounding like a younger Kanye. “I thought you said you’d never leave.” With little bass A$AP opts for a calm flow. By his final verse he’s gone from sounding like Yeezy to Wiz Khalifa. Florence’s voice is the song’s glory. Instinctively you hone in on the chorus she sings. A$AP takes chances. It has been one of his greatest assets. You’re unable to put A$AP in any type of box. He knows that and lives by it in his music.
