(AllHipHop News) Back in 2015, A$AP Rocky confused many of his Instagram followers when he uploaded more than 160 photos that eventually created elaborate collages by Robert Gallardo. Two weeks later, Rocky released his sophomore studio LP At.Long.Last.ASAP.
The A$AP Mob member has once again altered his IG page. Rocky only has one photo on the social media platform at the moment, which has some observers wondering if his third album is close to dropping.
“My new album is really about testing new sounds. People are scared to test new sounds, so they go with what’s current ’cause it’s the easy thing to do,” Rocky told GQ in October. “The top 100 songs sound a certain way. People cater more to that because it’s a bigger demographic behind that, or it’s a guaranteed demographic behind that. I prefer to experiment and have my crowd grow with me and to reach new crowds. I don’t just rap—I actually make music. That’s why it takes time. These sonics represent me.”
When asked if the LP would arrive in 2017, he responded, “Yes, sir.”
A$AP Rocky has already appeared on several songs released this year. For example, the New York City representative teamed with Tyler, The Creator for “Who Dat Boy,” Lana Del Rey for “Summer Bummer,” G-Eazy for “No Limit,” and A$AP Ferg for “The Mattress.”
There have also been reports he’s partnering with French Montana for a joint project. That announcement came a few weeks before Rocky recently stated he was “the greatest f-cking artist of all time.”
