(A$AP Rocky introduces “Get Lit” at his NYC listening session)

Last night, A$AP Rocky gave journalists their first listen to his debut mixtape, Live.Love.A$AP. The last minute session was your typical rap listening: chicken wings, booze and tons of weed smoke. However, the music that the young Harlemite introduced was definitely a new wave. I’ve been thinking about how I’m going to describe it and I can only say it’s “Harlem Trill.” The beats are slowed down and spacey but everything about Rocky screams New York. It just oozes out of him. You’ll see what I mean on Halloween, when the mixtape drops. For now, here’s a clip of Rocky introducing his favorite cut from Live.Love.A$AP.
