A$AP Rocky might be the most famous member to spring out of NYC’s A$AP Mob, likely because he had a chart-topping catchy-as-fuck track with Drake, 2 Chains, and Kendrick Lamar in “Fuckin’ Problems.” I can’t lie, I dug it. I also don’t hate “Sundress,” although I might give credit to the Tame Impala track that’s being sampled (“Why Won't You Make Up Your Mind?") and one of its coproducers (Danger Mouse) than A$AP’s singsong raps about an ex stepping out with her new man. And that track “Everyday”? Hot. Soulful and dark, with perfect guest tapping (Rod Stewart, Miguel, Mark Ronson), and strong A$AP Rocky rhyme game, from more leisurely to sped-up spits matching a mid-song tempo change. Lester Black gets credit for turning me on to that one. And A$AP Rocky gets credit for being good.
