new track

Wait And Scene is here to present you a new track by Harlem rapper A$AP Rocky featuring (almost) everyone that’s a big deal in the rap game right now! Last month WAS talked A$AP’s feature on that icy Big Bio and Phantogram track here. Based on his past releases and this tracked that leaked today, I have a feeling that Long. Live. A$AP is going to destroy the world…I know the Mayans predicted December 21st but I’m thinking this album release on January 15th will be the nail in the apocalyptic coffin. Okay, so I’m being dramatic but don’t say I didn’t warn you; this song is so hot! Hit-Boy delivered a classic old-school beat and Kendrick Lamar, Big K.R.I.T, Yelawolf, Danny Brown, Joey Bada$$, and Action Bronson had nothing to do one day (famous rappers never have plans) so they each laid down the grimiest lyrics over said beat…then smoked all the cheeba, drank all the booze, ate all the pizza, and chilled happily ever after. The End.

I’m just guessing, I wasn’t there! I’ve been at a few Yela concerts in the past and a plethora of other rap shows so I feel like I have background to make these assumptions.

Favorite verse? Tough call but for me it’s probably Big K.R.I.T; I love that southern rapper steez.

How could you ever doubt me? Most rappers hoping the world ends so they won’t have to drop another album.

Totally.

Jamie Lidell is an incredible musician, electronic artist, and singer from the UK who currently resides in Nashville, TN. He’s known for layering smooth vocals and sick beats while blurring the lines between genres. His influences are across the board from techno, pop, dubstep, funk, and most importantly, heart-wrenching soul. Earlier this week he gave us a 40-second album teaser vid which was much too short and didn’t tell us all that much. Today, he announced that he’s releasing that new self-titled album on February 18th through Warp Records. With that announcement, Jamie threw us a Clifford-sized bone (the big red dog, people!) by releasing a track called What A Shame. We can chew on this one for a few months or until we beg him for another treat. Press play and embrace the metamorphosis of sound. In the first few seconds, you’ll probably be like, “AHHHHH, my ears!!” and then you’ll be like, “Awwwh yeeeaaah, my ears.”

If you don’t like it,

What a shaaay-aaay-aaaaaame.
