We’ve all been curious about the status of A$AP Rocky’s major-label debut, LongLiveA$AP. Slated to arrive this fall, details about the project have been kept quiet and release dates came and went. Recently, the Harlemnite caught up with WiLD 94.9’s Nessa to discuss his new single with Drake, 2 Chainz, and Kendrick Lamar, and the delay of his first album.
“The issue with my album is I got things on it that’s so out of this world that it’s taking so long to get mastered. That’s the issue, and I refuse to take anything off. It’s complete, everything is being mastered and cleared right now. Its just so hard to get things cleared, because you got to find people to clear samples. It takes a long time and that’s why it keeps getting pushed back from Halloween to September 11th. I want to say it’s looking like top of the year, first quarter because it makes no sense to put out a album in December.”
The two also discussed A$AP Rocky’s fashion taste, his trademark braids, an ex-girlfriend and his current one.
