Fans of A$AP Rocky will have to keep waiting to get their hands on LongLiveA$AP. During an interview with WiLD 94.9’s Nessa (via Miss Info), the Harlem, New York rapper explained that the album is already finished but that the clearing and mastering process has caused him to push back the LP yet again. Now, he hopes to drop the project in early 2013.

“The issue with my album is I got things on it that’s so out of this world that it’s taking so long to get mastered,” he said. “That’s the issue, and I refuse to take anything off. It’s complete, everything is being mastered and cleared right now. Its just so hard to get things cleared, because you got to find people to clear samples. It takes a long time and that’s why it keeps getting pushed back from Halloween to September 11th. I want to say it’s looking like top of the year, first quarter because it makes no sense to put out a album in December.”

Watch the interview below, where he also speaks on “Fuckin’ Problem,” his fashion sense and more.
