A$AP Twelvy

A$AP Rocky f/ A$AP Twelvy & A$AP Nast "Trilla"

Pros: He has an entertaining personality, plus he rolls with A$AP Rocky so he'll get attention regardless.
Cons: Hasn't released much material yet, needs to establish himself outside of Rocky's shadow.
Essential Listening: N/A

A$AP Rocky is already a full-blown star so everybody wants to know who's next from A$AP Mob. Although they're all pretty interesting—and Ferg is especially entertaining; peep his Twitter feed—we're tempted to go with Twelvy as the next in line. Rather than riding on the crew's coat-tails, Twelvy is a fully formed artist unto himself who's been temporarily relegated to hypeman duties. The 22-year-old rapper (born Jamel Phillips) hasn't made his mark just yet, but be on the lookout for him to shine on the upcoming A$AP Mob mixtape.
