A$AP Rocky Poses For ‘GQ’ & Reveals Official Sophomore Album Title: 6 Photos
A$AP Rocky has been throwing the A.L.L.A acronym around for months as his sophomore LP title, but it turns out it was just a teaser for what’s to come! In a new interview with GQ magazine, the rapper reveals what the actual title stands for.
“I’m claiming ownership of my legacy. Look at it: At.Long.Last.A$AP. A-L-L-A. Like slang for ‘Allah.’ It’s the return of the god MC. I’m named after Rakim, and I’m finally facing what it means: I was born to do this shit. And I hope I get to do it for a very long time,” Rocky told the magazine. The project is executive produced by Juicy J, Danger Mouse and the late A$AP Yams. It features tracks like “Multiply” and “Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye 2 (LPFJ2).”
Along with the interview, he also poses for an Erik Ray Davidson-photographed editorial spread in which he looks charmingly dapper!
There is still no set release date for At.Long.Last.A$AP, which will the follow-up to 2013’s Long.Live.A$AP, but Rocky has hinted at it dropping sometime this summer.
