It’s been a long, unstoppable journey for A$AP Rocky in the last four years and he’s just getting started. After going through a year of absolute chaos, Rocky season is in full effect.

The Harlem native surprised the music community earlier this week with the release of his highly-anticipated sophomore album At.Long.Last.A$AP. The response has been nothing but positive. After dealing with the tragic loss of his close friend A$AP Yams earlier this year, Rocky’s emotions vividly pour out of the speakers through each track on this carefully crafted project. The psychedelic theme is certainly a whole new sound to more recent fans, but not an unfamiliar place coming from Rocky’s creative side.

“For me, as an artist, I wanted to prove to people so bad that I could be successful mainstream-wise,” he says of his growth from his Long.Live.A$AP debut days in our Civil Interview. “This project, I didn’t feel the need to prove nothing no more. I was like, ‘Yo, I’m making some dope ass art.'” From landing an unreleased Pimp C verse on “Wavybone,” to tributing Yams on the album’s cover art, Rocky opens up on a slew of topics.

  1. Rocky has honestly done it again by producing game changing sounds! Definitely one of the most good humored and creative rappers out there. Loved seeing that side of him again through this interview. Amazing work Linds! And yes his TEETH ARE PHENOMENAL!
