Back on Easter Sunday, news surfaced that A$AP Rocky’s highly anticipated A.L.L.A. (At.Long.Last.A$AP) album would be dropping on May 26th, according to Amazon’s pre-order page. While nothing has been confirmed since, we now have reports of a new release date, which is actually sooner and better for us fans.
There isn't a whole lot of consensus in the Future mixtape canon (namely because there are so many, and pretty much all of them are good), but Dirty Sprite is generally agreed upon as a strong contender for the Atlanta rapper's best non-album work. Early fans will be excited to hear the news that Fewtch is working on a follow-up to the beloved project, announcing the news on Twitter today.
On 2009's "Successful," a young Drake rapped, "Diss me, you’ll never hear a reply for it," creating somewhat of a mission statement for his career from there on out.

Since the release of Long.Live.ASAP in 2013, Rocky has been on hiatus, at least, from the rapsphere. Even before he dropped his debut album, he started experimenting in the business of fashion.
Flacko season in effect. After getting A$AP Rocky's latest single, "Everyday," a wild collab with Miguel, Mark Ronson, and Rod Stewart, the hype for Rocky's A.L.L.A. continues as we get the album artwork.
Time and time again, we've seen Tupac-focused films falter very soon out of the gate, so hopefully things are different this time around. Gobi Rahimi, who directed the "2 Of Amerikaz Most Wanted video, among others, is now trying to fund a film called "7Dayz" that will focus on the last week of the West Coast legend's life. On his Indiegogo page, Rahimi writes:
After revealing in a video yesterday that his "retirement" from rap was a hoax, and he's not moving to Australia after all, Hopsin is getting straight into the promo for his new album Pound Syndrome.
Can Ginuwine create another "Pony"? The r'n'b artist recently revealed he's taking a cue from his debut album (which housed the hit "Pony"), and titling his new album Bachelor Again But Wiser.
