A$AP Rocky, ‘Goldie’: Rapper Drops Lead Single From ‘LongLiveA$AP’
A$AP Rocky has toured with Drake and been interviewed by Nardwuar. In other words, he’s already kind of a big deal, and on “Goldie,” the lead single form his forthcoming major label debut LP, LongLiveA$AP, the Harlem rapper exercises his right to boast.
“H–s at my shows, they be stripping off they clothes,” the rapper drawls in the opening bars, using a pitch-altering effect that makes him sound like a robot on codeine.
Rocky eventually goes back to his regular voice, doing the drugs-guns-girls thing over producer Hit-Boy‘s spare beat and simple keyboard melody.
“You could call me Billy Gates, got a crib in every state,” spits the A$AP Mob boss, turning to real estate. “Man on the moon, got a condo out in space.”
