Bob Ross – [A$AP Ant] ft. [Lulu P] & [A$AP Twelvyy]

Right at the end of last year, A$AP Ant decided to bless us with his unbelievable project entitled Lil Black Jean Jacket 2, an album containing 17 songs that ran just under 40 minutes long. While I think it goes without saying that Ant is one of the more underrated members of A$AP Mob, he knows exactly how talented he is, and fans aren’t quick to forget that either. A few days ago, the homie hit me up and told me about a brand-new music video for the album’s record “Bob Ross” which also features the unbelievably talented Lulu P and fellow Mob member A$AP Twelvyy. While I’m not entirely sure who shot this flick, I do know that they made it an entire community affair, bringing out what seemed like the whole city of New York to back up some of the best emcees coming out of the city. Opening up in a crowd of people, certain individuals are showing off their designer garments as well as the substances they’re carrying around with them like lean and countless blunts, of course. The entire visual seems to have some sort of granular filter as we move on throughout, giving the …

For The Love – [RARI]

Virginia native Rari has shown some very promising moves at a very early point in his career. Being backed by High Def Razjah–producer behind A$AP Ferg’s “Work”, Rari has a few singles under his belt and a very bright future ahead of him. Produced by Masi the Producer, Rari is appearing for the first time on the Lyrical Lemonade platform with his latest single, “For The Love”. Coming from a state that is home to many of the legendary rappers and producers, Rari is a very interesting artist for the way he blends multiple flows, sounds, and cadences. At a first glance, his production choice is full of that heavy-hitting bass and deep 808’s that the south is known for. When speaking to Rari about how he and Masi linked up, he stated: “I linked up with the homie Masi The Producer and noticed his sound was different. We always planned to work and as two Virginia creatives we knew we couldn’t go wrong”. One thing about Rari is that he’s big on putting on for his city first and foremost. Lots of artists seek to find love and support from other cities in order to blow up at a …

BM$ – [Delly]

Today we are going to shine some light on a rapper who may sound a little familiar even if you’ve never heard his music before. Harlem’s own Delly is an outstanding artist on the come up, also known as the younger brother of A$AP Ferg. Delly has been grinding in his own right and has been releasing some incredible music as of late. His latest single “BM$” has one of the wildest beats I’ve heard in 2021 and should be fair warning that Delly is looking to carve out a lane all to himself. At only 22 years old, Delly is still only just getting started. While his voice is definitely reminiscent, Delly’s approach to music is definitely different than that of his brother. Where they meet is being unquestionably Harlem, the energy on “BM$” is high as soon as the Frankie P beat kicks in and Delly gets on his fly shit. Along with the single, visuals released for this track directed by Delly and Maliq Rideau feature a wild night caught on VHS camera. This grainy footage matches the song in a perfect way, proving Delly has more up his sleeve than just fire music. Be on the …

Pete Rose – [A$AP Ant]

I said this just last week when I covered A$AP Twelvyy’s music video for his song “Madden 95”, but I have no problem repeating myself when it comes to A$AP Mob to further emphasize my point. This point that I’m referring to is the fact that although the Mob might be known for members like Rocky and Ferg in the mainstream, the collective runs much deeper than these two frontrunners, and the backbones of the group deserve their time in the spotlight just as much. While Members like Ant, Twelvyy, and Nast get a moment to shine (and even outshine) their popular counterparts at times on their Cozy Tapes series, I think that their individual efforts are just as notable, although much less recognized for whatever unfair and obscure reason. Take A$AP Ant’s 2020 project Lil Black Jean Jacket 2, a 17 song, almost 40-minute-long effort full of sounds and talents that often go overshadowed. I’m here to make sure this album and Ant get the respect they so clearly deserve, and luckily, Ant decided to gift his true fans with a brand-new music video for the 16th track on the project “Pete Rose”, a song that was produced by …

95 Madden – [A$AP Twelvyy]

It’s no secret that the A$AP Mob is one of the most-recognized, well-known collectives in all of music. While Rocky and Ferg might be the frontrunners, there are a handful of other artists that make up the Mob, and every member plays a vital role in the group’s success. If you don’t believe me, just listen to either of their Cozy Tapes collaborative projects, because although Rocky or Ferg might be some of the most recognizable voices, all the other members team up and provide some very impactful contributions. One of my favorite members is undeniably A$AP Twelvyy, and I would also say he’s one of the most underrated as well. His flows are constantly new, his voice is full of charisma and personality, and he just has this way about his delivery that differentiates himself from the rest of the collective without sounding even remotely out of place. Back in October, Twelvyy released his album, Noon Yung, a 15-song effort that was filled with old school-influences with new-aged twists, and I definitely feel as if it deserved a lot more recognition than it initially received. Luckily, Twelvyy decided to team up with director Dennis Wilford in order to breathe …

Demonstrate – [HighDefRazjah]

It’s often debated on the timeline as to if people think producers should venture into rap careers after dominating the production side of things. There have been very few that have done it successfully, but there definitely is a lane for it. Rappers such as Kanye West, Travis Scott, Pierre Bourne and Sonny Digital are all artists who got their rise to fame from starting out as a producer, and then venturing into rap–with the exception of Pierre Bourne who started out doing both rapping and producing at the same time. One of the latest inductees into the ever-growing pool of producers turned rappers would be the Virginia-native HighDefRazjah. Razjah has been someone that has been on my radar for a very long time. To see his ascension and his rise to stardom has been nothing less of amazing to witness, and he is just getting started. After landing tons of placements for his trunk-rattling anthem “Value” with A$AP Ferg, Razjah is already planning for the next chapter in his career and that is putting his pen and rap skills to the test. Very recently, he premiered his latest rap offering, titled “Demonstrate”. “They been sleepin’, so I guess it’s …

A$AP Twelvyy: The Epitome of Betting on Yourself

“I just like to let the kids know that this shit is authentic and it’s real. The dreams always come with nightmares. I’ve been down bad before, so I know what it’s like to get up.” -A$AP Twelvyy The rate at just how fast the game moves can be mind blowing at times. It seems like it was just yesterday when everyone was bragging about how much they wanted to be signed to major records, and now a lot of artists are preaching about independency. The art of making your own and owning your own art is something that is being highly praised right now–even to the point of some of the major artists are threatening to leave their labels and go down the independent trail. That’s not to disrespect the artists who are currently signed to major labels and are doing their thing. There are definitely some labels out there that will take care of their artists and mean the best to their artists that are on the label. However, there are also a lot of artists who are currently in bad record deals, receiving terrible splits, and overall not getting the push that they deserve from their label they …

Replace Me – [Nas] ft. [Don Toliver] & [Big Sean]

Whether you’re a young, new school fan of Rap music or you’re an OG fan of the “golden era” of music, there should be no question that Nas is one of the greatest emcees to ever grace a microphone. His thirteenth studio album King’s Disease was a project I was curious about because a lot of originators of the genre take one of two paths. One of these paths includes the mindset that they’re too good for the new generation of artists while the other path recognizes their talents and wants to include them. Nas took the latter, thankfully, and included a slew of new aged rappers like Fivio Foreign, A$AP Ferg, Anderson .Paak, Big Sean, and Don Toliver, among many others. Due to this, he was able to bring a hint of old school sounds back with the infusion of many newer influences, allowing the two time frames to collide, ultimately resulting in an absolutely unbelievable album, unsurprisingly. In order to assist his incredible project, he has dropped off a variety of music videos, prompting me to cover his latest visual for “Spicy”, the bonus track featuring Fivio and Ferg. Just when I thought the fun might’ve concluded, he’s …

Spicy – [Nas] ft. [Fivio Foreign] & [A$AP Ferg]

There are certain names in the Rap scene that have reached legendary status and they’re cited as influences for almost any artist you can name. Nas is one of these emcees, and although it’s not a shock to anyone that I’m saying this, he is one of the greats. Even after the new age of Rappers came through and changed the scenery, Nas remains one of the best to ever make music, and instead of hating on the new generation of music, he rather likes to include them in his career while also getting them out of their comfort zones and pushing their limits to the edge. His collaborative album with the legendary hitmaker Hit-Boy King’s Disease was a success, including some of the biggest names in music such as Charlie Wilson, Big Sean, Lil Durk, Don Toliver, Anderson .Paak, and more, and seeing him come together with artists like this shows off his dexterity just as much as them, if not more. Luckily, just a few days ago we received a visual for the project’s closing song “Spicy” featuring Fivio Foreign and A$AP Ferg, and the results are as good as the song itself. As for this track, Hit-Boy …

A Conversation w/ A$AP Ferg: ‘Floor Seats 2’, Being An Innovator in Rap, Hustlers vs. Artists & More

“We care about challenging the listeners ears. They may not like it right now, but in a year or so, they may end up developing a taste for it. We are planting seeds, and that’s something that I want to continue to do as far as being an innovator.” -A$AP Ferg In a world where it can be difficult to come up with fresh and current ideas, it can be hard when trying to be an innovator in your craft. Especially in the rap game–it seems as if everything has already been talked about, every beat has been rapped on, and every city has had their shine. Despite the landscape being far more focused on mimicking others, we always have a handful of artists who’s main goal is to stay as fresh as possible–delivering new flows, cadences and instrumentals for us all to learn to love. The year is 2011, and a brand new rap collective emerged from Harlem, NY which we all know and love now, known as A$AP Mob. A$AP Rocky, the first to blow from the group had all eyes on him, but there was a second member of the group that would follow right behind him, …
