A$AP Rocky announces some wonderful news.
After dropping off a couple of mysterious joints on his SoundCloud, A$AP Rocky fueled speculation that his new album was imminent. And while “5ive $TAR$”, “Above” and “Money Bags Freestyle” were met with some seriously mixed reviews, the strange, unfinished nature and ever-changing artwork led many to believe that Rocky was simply coming through with an appropriately mysterious rollout. After all, Flacko doesn’t move like most other rappers; if he’s choosing to release unmixed, unmastered music, there very well be a greater reason.Still, the questions remained? Was it called Testing or Dummie? When was it dropping? Is it even done? Last night, Rocky answered the final question during a show in Berlin.”A lot of ya’ll don’t know but the only reason I came to Berlin was to finish my album,” says Rocky. “And I just finished.” The news is immediately met with applause from the crowd, who presumably got a taste of some of the album’s offerings. If the project is indeed finished, it shouldn’t be long before we start hearing some more official news, including the title, release date, album artwork, and tracklist.
Check out the footage below, and sound off – were you among those disappointed by the new Rocky tracks? If so, are you still confident that Flacko will deliver a memorable project? After all, the rapper did recently proclaim himself the “greatest contemporary artist of all time,” so it’s only logical that he has to back up his words. Stay tuned for more news on Testing or Dummie or whatever it’s actually going to be called.
