It’s Flacko season. A$AP Rocky has announced the title of his sophomore album—At.Long.Last.A$AP.
The Harlem rapper previously teased the acronym A-L-L-A, but he finally revealed what it stands for in an interview with GQ.
“I’m claiming ownership of my legacy,” he told the magazine. “Look at it: At.Long.Last.A$AP. A-L-L-A. Like slang for ‘Allah.’ It’s the return of the god MC. I’m named after Rakim, and I’m finally facing what it means: I was born to do this shit. And I hope I get to do it for a very long time.”
The follow-up to his 2013 debut Long.Live.A$AP is executive produced by Juicy J, Danger Mouse, and the late A$AP Yams.
It has already spawned the singles “Multiply” and “Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye 2 (LPFJ2).”
The album was born in London at Red Bull Studios and he has been recording in L.A. with Danger Mouse. In addition to the usual fashion shout-outs, the introspective project includes psychedelic ’60s London, a singing Rocky, and acoustic guitar.
He also collaborated with an unknown Brit named Joe Fox, whom he met while wandering the streets near the studio.
“It’s my best work yet,” Rocky previously told Billboard.
Watch him debut a new verse off At.Long.Last.A$AP for GQ.
