ASAP Rocky, touring to promote his forthcoming album titled LongLiveA$AP, pulled a surprise on the audience when he had Kendrick Lamar join him on stage to spit verses from the number “F*ckin Problems”. The number also features 2 Chainz and Drake, but these homies were conspicuous by their absence.
Rocky performed to a sold out crowd and had other guest stars come up on stage as well, but it was this collaboration that got the most cheers. The number, if the buzz is to be believed, is the standout song of this fall / winter. Let’s see what the album brings in toto.
Kendrick Lamar is doing what artists do when an album release is nigh; drum up interest and to this end he turned up at the the Breakfast Club and discussed “good kid, m.A.A.d city,” Dr. Dre’s “Detox,” Lady Gaga and other things. The aforementioned album is going to be his debut album.
Lamar gave an interesting take on his musical inspirations, he said “My influence was the West Coast for a long time,” “I had to double back as I got old enough to understand why Biggie is one of the greatest..So when I went in this album I just gathered that information from them forefathers and put it all in one boat. And make sure I display versatility, flow, aggression, everything that I learned from them cats.”
