20 Essential A$AP Rocky Mixtape Songs


“Purple Swag”
Mixtape: Deep Purple (2011)

“Purple Swag” and its accompanied video directed by Jason Ano took the rap blog game by storm. Now with more than 19 million views on YouTube, the song perfectly described how A$AP walked the line between Houston and Harlem influences. The swagger exuding in his rhymes and the slowed-down flow piqued curiosity of many rap fans at the time. Years later, the now-infamous girl in the video still keeps it trill.

    Big Spender is a song of one of the Theophilus London mixtapes, not “N/A”

      It would be safe to say that none of these songs are available on Spotify.

    How is Rocky so sick. He is awesome, his mixes are awesome, enough said. Can’t wait to see which songs he decides to play live on the 24th. The Xcel in Saint Paul is gonna be NUTS!
