Harlem native Rakim Mayers, better known as A$AP Rocky, has had one whirlwind of a year. Between a steamy romance with model/rapper Iggy Azalea, appearing in Lana Del Rey’s “National Anthem” video, and now working with the one and only Skrillex, there is no doubt that Rocky is one of the most promising new faces in the game.
“Wild For The Night” was released today, along with Rocky’s debut album, “Long.Live.A$AP.” And is gearing up to be just as much of a hit as his 2011 mixtape was, which got stellar reviews from fans and critics alike. The track is a beautiful mix of dubstep, EDM, and hip-hop that will have you nodding your head while trying to keep up with the multi-layered trance-inspired beat, and is sure to keep you pressing repeat too many times to count. Check it out below and let us know what you think: did Rocky live up to all the hype?
