Hear a$ap rocky like you’ve never heard him before on ‘everyday’
A$AP Rocky isn’t really into conventionality; ever since the Harlem, New York rap star marched onto the scene with his syrupy 2011 mixtapeLive.Love.A$AP he has challenged rap norms.
So, when Rocky’s newest single starts out with an acapella wail from British rock icon Rod Stewart you shouldn’t be surprised.
“Everyday I spend my time, drinking wine, feeling fine, waiting here to find the signs,” they both sing.
With his raps, Rocky deals with his rising celebrity, the nagging paparazzi and his own moral compass. “And only God can judge me and he don’t like no ugly,” he rhymes.
“He choked on his vomit. He suffocated on his vomit in his sleep. If it was drugs in his body or not, he still suffocated off his vomit,” Rocky told MTV News in March.
Considering all of his real life drama, plus his musical growth, A.L.L.A. is shaping up to be different from Rock’s 2013 major label debutLong.Live.A$AP, which was led by the raunchy free-love ode “F–kin’ Problems.”
“People know me for being the guy talking about, ‘I got bad bitches I got a f–king problem.’ And in all reality, that’s fun. I was only 23 at the time—that was cute, fine. But right now… when you think about me, as far as my art goes, I want you to remember something a little more honorable. That’s all,” he told us.
