January 15th 2013 sees the release of ASAP Rocky’s Debut studio Album “Long Live ASAP”

Got to admit that when i first heard the mix tape Live Love ASAP it took a while to grow on me i mean Purple Haze  was freaking awesome and meant i had high expectations but after a couple of listens to the mix tape i was loving it!!

 

This coming album is set to be good, with singles such a ‘F**kin’ Problems featuring Drake, 2 Chainz & Kendrick Lamar being huge already!
