A$AP Rocky has steadily delayed his debut album LongLiveA$AP from the summer to fall to 2013. During an interview with The Charlotte Observer, the Harlem, New York rapper revealed that the album was completed months ago but that he’s holding off on releasing it so that he can get his buzz up.
“Secretly this album has been done, honestly, for the past couple of months. My buzz has been growing rapidly, but I’ve secretly done all these amazing things a long time ago,” he said.
Referring to the “amazing things” he’s done, Rocky explained that he’s talking about peers who are featured on his records and those that feature him on their songs. ““People like to work with me because I’m eclectic and I care about the craft. It’s a true collaboration based on chemistry, not based on buzz,” he explained.
