Swizz Can Make the Street Knock A$AP

Let me back up a little bit and provide a formal introduction to @_ASAPROCKY. The cliff notes versions is that he hails from Harlem and blew up on the scene last year when his mixtape LiveLoveA$AP dropped. To give you a glimpse of how far he's come in a matter of months, his mixtape has been downloaded over 300,000 times on datpiff (since October). His lead single off the mixtape, Peso, found it's way onto Hot 97 last August and the rest is history. Check the video below where he talks with Karen Civil on everything from his tour experiences with Drake and Kendrick Lamar to the comparisons of A$AP Mob to ODD Future and how he wants to collaborate with @lanadelrey...

Put it this way, when you get an opportunity to open for @drake, it's only a matter of time before everyone knows your name. Needless to say his stardom will only continue to ascend as he is set to release an A$AP Mob album in May and a debut studio album on July 4t titled LongLiveA$AP.

It helps too when yo get to rub shoulders with some of the best artists/producers in the game like @therealswizzz and @araabmuzik. The track below is slated to surface as the lead single on Swizz's new mixtape Limitless. I've added araabmuzik to my concert bucket list because honestly I'm tired of watching his damn YouTube videos and being amazed. I wanna step it up and be amazed in person because dude has a special talent the way he can maneuver the MPC. The beat on Street Knock is no exception and if you've seen him work in studio, you can hear the individual elements of the beat and picture how he's putting them together. It's a steady banger and an ample opportunity for you get a better feel for the take no prisoners stance that A$AP takes when he's on the mic..."Gaddammit I'm a genius, swagger is the meanest"
