A$AP Rocky

A$AP Rocky is teaming up with fellow A$AP Mob member, A$AP Ferg, in addition to Bodega Bamz, 4th Pyramid, and DJ Getlive! for a Scion A/V-presented NYC show on February 20 at Public Assembly. The only way to get in is to enter Scion's contest via Twitter or Instagram. Instructions on how to do so are below and more info is HERE.

Though entering the contest obviously won't guarantee admission and Rocky plays NYC a lot, the show is pretty exciting in that it's an intimate one for him before heading out on tour with Rihanna, and it's his first NYC show since the release of his new album, Long. Live. A$AP. As someone who's been a pretty big naysayer of A$AP Rocky's previous work (sorry, "Purple Swag"), the new album finally won me over as a fan. He raps more confidently than in the past, the songs are catchier, and production from Hit-Boy, 40, T-Minus, Clams Casino, Danger Mouse... and Skrillex (because, why not?) doesn't hurt. Neither do guests verses from everyone. If you haven't heard it yet, you can stream the album below.

Another A$AP Mob member, A$AP Twelvy is also teaming up with Bodega Bamz for their own show on March 6 at Santos Party House. Tickets for that one are on sale now.

And, as mentioned, A$AP Ferg also plays with Fat Trel on February 12 at SOB's. That show also includes Da$h & Retch and A$ton Matthews. Tickets for that one are still available.
