Ten years ago, on Halloween, Harlem would birth ASAP Rocky. Offering the world the TY Beats-produced singles “Purple Swag” and “Pesos,” the energy from New York City would never be the same, from a cultural aspect. Whatever you thought a rapper from Manhattan, NY would sound like, completely went out the window with Rocky’s ‘Live.Love.A$AP’ mixtape.
The newest edition to the 10-year anniversary cover is Rocky saluting the late ASAP YAMS, none of which would be possible without him. Rocky has Yams’ birthmark in the same place.
The 15-track mixtape has finally made its way to streaming platforms, even featuring the bonus track of “Sandman,” a previously unreleased song that now finds a home on the mixtape.
Take a trip down nostalgia lane and check out the mixtape below:
