Up-and-coming Harlem rapper A$AP Rocky has signed with Polo Grounds Music/RCA Records.
“I feel great about the new deal; I believe it was destined and with a label like Polo Grounds & RCA behind me I don’t see anything stopping us,” A$AP Rocky said in a statement. “I wanted go with the right partner that can help get a bigger platform to get me and my A$AP crew’s music and movement out. I expect to be in the same league as today’s most relevant artists, and there are just some things you can’t do on your own. The plan is to not only release great music, culture, and style for myself and A$AP worldwide, but to also be the next major artist/exec in the business and make great business men out of my brothers.”
A$AP has been building quite a buzz as of late, most notably off the strength of his records “Purple Swag” and “Peso.” He has performed with fellow Harlemites The Diplomats during their NY concert last month and will be touring with vocal fan Drake, during his upcoming Club Paradise tour.
As of press time there is no release date for his debut album. —Christian Mordi
