A$AP Rocky Doesn’t Think Debut Will Arrive On Halloween
After announcing a Halloween release date for his long-awaited Long.Live.A$AP debut, Harlem rapper A$AP Rocky is apparently having second thoughts. During an interview with MTV on the red carpet of the 2012 Video Music Awards—where he performed with Rihanna for their "Cockiness (Remix)" record— Rocky mentioned that although he's aiming to drop the album on it's scheduled date, "If [it doesn't drop] around that time, it's gonna be later this fall."
"Hopefully, if I can reach the deadline," he asserted during the interview. With his current Hit-Boy produced "Goldie" still on the airwaves, Rocky is poised on offering the best with his upcoming offering. "A year ago if I would've told people I'm gonna make you wait a year to drop my [album], they probably would've been pissed, now that the time has come I think everybody's gonna be happy with it." Aside from the release date, the "Goldie" rapper also says he has three more singles for the forthcoming LP, with one he hopes to drop really soon. "I really feel good about this, I really feel deeply good about this, because I put my all into it, and it's a different aspect of me," he said. "It's just showing my capabilities and how much of an artist I really am — not just a rapper."—Ralph Bristout (@XXLRalph)
