A$AP Rocky - Peso

Switching things about a bit now with a bit of Housten rap from Rakim Mayers, aka A$AP Rocky. I’m never going to pretend to be an expert on this genre and in fact my own musical tastes are very muddled when it comes to MC’s… I tend to be drawn to something if it’s a little off the well-worn ‘top 40’ track and has a bit of attitude and balls to it. And A$AP Rocky sits well with me. I like the lazy, chilled out approach to the age old ego boosting lyricism of rap. I like Rocky’s coolly confident style and the effortlessly originality of his music. And I definitely look forward to hearing more…

If you want more info, he was featured on the BBC Sound of 2012 list so you can read/hear more there. And Pitchfork have a brilliant review of his album LIVELOVEA$AP that speaks with far more authority and knowledge than I could ever hope for!
