The A$AP Mob member has staked his claim as one of the most talented in the collective…
Late last month Bronx native A$AP Twelvyy released a new single featuring A$AP Rocky entitled ‘Diamonds’, that followed on from one of the best hip hop tracks of the year so far in ‘Strapped’.
With a scrapped album meant for release in 2014, Twelvyy has been busy working back up a buzz with a string of singles released last year along with joining Flatbush Zombies on tour.
’12’ has now dropped and it features A$AP Ferg, Joey Bada$$, Flatbush Zombies and more.
In an interview with Complex, Twelvyy explains the concept of the new LP.
“The everyday struggle. Staying authentic, staying raw, staying New York City. I love evolution, but I’ve seen with Rocky first coming out, or or Ferg, [people say,] “Yo, these cats don’t sound like New York.” My whole mission was to be like, “Alright, you could say that these two don’t sound like the city—but yo, he sound like the city.” That was one thing that was in my head too: sounding where I’m from or helping our sound grow.”
A$AP Mob are set for a busy few week’s with Ferg’s new mixtape dropping on August 18 and the collective’s ‘Cozy Tapes Vol. 2: Too Cozy’ arriving on August 25. Eyes peeled.
