Patience has been a character trait natural to A$AP Twelvyy fans, and today the wait is over. Dropping his debut studio album 12, Twelvyy comes in hot with what A$AP Yams termed the “best NY rap album [he’s] heard in years,” back in 2014.
The 28-year old member of the infamous A$AP Mob cops blessings on record from Rocky, Ferg, Flatbush Zombies, Joey Bada$$ and more. He gave Complex some background on the new drop:
“The everyday struggle. Staying authentic, staying raw, staying New York City,” he explained when asked about the topics in 12. “I love evolution, but I’ve seen with Rocky first coming out, or or Ferg, [people say,] ‘Yo, these cats don’t sound like New York.’ My whole mission was to be like, ‘Alright, you could say that these two don’t sound like the city—but yo, he sound like the city.’ That was one thing that was in my head too: sounding where I’m from or helping our sound grow.”
Let this one take you through till the Mob release their well-teased Cozy Tapes Vol. 2: Too Cozy on Aug 24.
