Complex says: Harlem’s own ASAP Rocky spits with a relaxed confidence that has taken the Internet by storm in just a few months. With surprisingly polished lyrical delivery, excellent timing, and a flare for talking that talk, Rocky’s what you would get if you crossed Lil B with the Diplomats. Having a few bangers like “Wassup” and “Purple Swag” under his belt—as well as recent collaborations with Clams Casino—Rocky’s building the kind of fan-base that’s likely to explode upon discovery.
