Rocky's inclusion on this list is a bit awkward because this album has already leaked. On the bright side, we're happy to report that it's an excellent, worthy debut that remains true to A$AP's trillwave sound. The only real question is if fans will actually go out to stores and buy the album and if Rocky will prove himself as the superstar we've pegged him to be. We're hoping the answer is yes, even if the leak certainly hurts his chances of strong first week sales.
