ASAP Rocky, a 'Peso' for your thoughts?

ASAP Rocky, great job!

You’re so brand new to us. Like many tired of one-hit wonders and trends that last as long as you can keep relevant on social network feeds, I wonder, will you deliverYou promise a lot you know.

I just hope you don’t end up a fool to the label, knowing executives always love pushing the next big flashy thing to the world.

Regardless, I’ve been doing my research; listening to every track and watching every interview I can find.

Even though I can’t possibly relate to your personal experiences, I still feel a connection with the fact that you’re sick and tired of the beef. You just want to chill. I just want to chill. Why can’t we all chill with some bangin’ ass tracks as the soundtrack for our generation?

I had a hearty chuckle when I saw a Pitchfork quote that read:

“I used to be homophobic, but that’s fucked up. All the designers I’m wearing are gay.”

These days, it’s exactly as Schoolboy Q says, dubbing you and the ASAP Mob into the game with the song Brand New Guy:

“Your time’s up, the new brand’s up.”

There is much potential that you’ve already expressed through your first couple of mixtapes, and I really hope you and ASAP Mob deliver! Now the world awaits your major debut.

Keep it true and real.

Keep doing you.

I respect your interest for genres outside of your home in Harlem. I think it’s great that you take Southern hip-hop vibes and make them your own. You spit hot fire ranging from Weezy to Yeezy.

Honestly, I’m glad you’re not just another run-of-the-mill rapper representing his hometown; your love for all genres is truly representative of our e-generation. I don’t know about the rest of the bruhs here in Cali think — but I’m all about true and real.

Despite all the uncertainties, I recognize the young trill champion in you. I feel it in your lyrics, your essence, your ballsy IDGAF swagger.

But it seems you already know this.

Rap game fucked up, boy. Fuck you think I rap for?

No matter what you do, keep it G ASAP Rocky!
