If It Ain’t Broke…

This week, Harlem’s ASAP Rocky dropped “Goldie”, the first single from his upcoming major label debut, LongLiveA$AP.  A chopped and screwed vocal hook, handfuls of high-fashion name drops and a staggering dose of confidence jam-pack these three minutes and fifteen seconds. Seems like Rocky is staying true to form for his legions of new fans.  In a blink he’s started to carve out a niche for his ASAP crew.  Truth be told, this single is a fucking monster.

Production is handled gorgeously by Hit-Boy, known for his stellar board work on “Niggas in Paris” and Kanye’s recent “Theraflu”.  Club DJ’s will certainly wear this record out.  A 4th grade recorder melody climbs and crashes over a futuristic bass line while the percussion hiccups between strange chants and cheers.  Only thing missing is the sound of bottles popping while glasses clink.  The fresh scent of the young and rich is all over this one…
