So apparently, A$AP Rocky, who was riding around London had an object hurrled at his car. This prompted Rocky and crew to follow the alleged assailant into a bagel shop and confront him. Rocky, who is from Harlem, put on his best Harlem tough guy pose and went at the guy, giving him a ear full, and threatened to put hands on him. Rocky cooled off and walked away. However, the man (or men?) in the bagel shop had some choice words for Rocky as well. The title of the video, by the way, is “ASAP Rocky Running Gums in London” so clearly the people in that bagel shop weren’t exactly “cool” with the A$AP Mob all-star. Check out the full video of the confrontation after the jump.
While A$AP Rocky is prepping the release of his forthcoming At.Long.Last.A$AP album his A$AP Mob partners are busy with their solo efforts as well. Here A$AP Twelvyy follows up his “Glock Rivers” single with “LORD” a Buda Da Future x GrandMuzik produced track. Check it out after the jump.
In case you haven’t heard, The Diplomats are back. The return of OG Dipset members Jim Jones, Freekey Zeeky, and Juelz Santana together so far has been promising with the Harlem squadron dropping the awesome “Have My Money” loosie and now a gloomy, aggressive, and downright murderous freestyle over The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Victory.” Many have interpreted the lyrics as shots at JAY Z and his website, Life + Times. Listen to The Diplomats’ “Victory” freestyle after the jump.
When Dipset announced they’d be reuniting again and dropping a mixtape many, including myself, didn’t think much of it. It was a classic case of ‘I’ll believe it when I see it.’ And now, I am a believer as Dipset have shared a new track “Have My Money” on Funk Flex’s radio show. “Have My Money” features OG Dipset members Jim Jones, Freekey Zeeky, Juelz Santana, and of course Cam’ron. Listen to the new Dipset track after the jump!
First of the month is here! Well, second of the month to be exact. But semantics put aside you know what that means: new installment to Cam’ron’s 1st of the Month series. It’s the sixth edition and features five total tracks, including “Devastated” and “Million Dolla.” Grab Cam’ron’s 1st of the Month, Vol. 6 after the jump.
Hip-hop’s relationship with fashion has been well documented and rappers often use the song format to profess their unbridled love for brands. However, Smoke DZA ain’t with that, evident by his candidly titled new track “F*ck Denim & Supply.” DZA uses O.T. Genasis’ smash hit “CoCo” instrumental to go ham on the fashion label Denim & Supply. Check it out after the jump.
With both A$AP Ferg and YG heading out on the BestCoast Connection Tour in a couple days the two have decided to share their collaborative new track called “This Side”. Listen to the track after the jump.
First of the mon… well, technically it’s the second of the month but you get the idea. And that means one thing for Harlem rap superstar Cam’ron: dropping the latest installment in his 1st of the Month EP series. If you’ve lost count, he’s currently up to five. The five track EP features guest spots from Wiz Khalifa, Hell Rell, and Smoke DZA. You may stream it below.
After A$AP Mob officially scrapped their highly anticipated, long gestating crew album a week ago fans seemingly began to lose hope for the Harlem collective. That is, of course, until founder A$AP Yams announced that A$AP Rocky’s album is “up next”. And today we receive perhaps the first single off said album, “Multiply” featuring Memphis legend (and everyone’s favorite) Juicy J. Some noteworthy lyrics from Rocky: “Come to Harlem if you’ve never seen Baghdad”. Video after the jump.
