A$AP Rocky drops animated music video and a new track
The rap world may be consumed with news of the Kanye West-Wiz Khalifa Twitter beef and B.o.B.’s insane flat earth theories, but A$AP Rocky hasn’t been idle either. The rapper dropped three new goodies for fans Thursday: an animated music video for At.Long.Last.A$AP track “JD,” a new collaboration with Pharrell called “Hear Me,” and an extended A$AP Mob tribute to their late collaborator A$AP Yams.
The “JD” video starts with Rocky walking through a nighttime cityscape, but as soon as the beat drops it switches to an illustrated style of animation. The video flickers back and forth between these visual styles for the rest of its run time, a mind-bending effect that fits the psychedelic track (from one of EW’s favorite albums of 2015).
“Hear Me” is a light, smooth track that comfortably combines Pharrell’s catchy production with Rocky’s flow. “Yamborghini High” features Rocky, fellow members of A$AP Mob, and Juicy J paying tribute to A$AP Yams.
