Album review: A$AP Rocky, Long.Live (Polo Grounds/RCA)
Sunday 20 January 2013
There's a fine line between "effortless" and "lazy", and A$AP Rocky walks it with nonchalant ease.
On Long.Live the Harlem rapper brings out the big guns. The collaborators this time around include Drake, Florence Welch, Santigold, Skrillex and Kendrick Lamar (who damn near steals the show). Rocky's rhymes are believable when reminiscing about growing up poor. And when he slides into sexism, at least he's funny with it.
