A$AP Rocky ft. Kendrick Lamar, Joey Bada$$, Yelawolf, Danny Brown, Action Bronson & Big K.R.I.T.

With his album ‘Long.Live.A$AP’ announced for early next year, one of the most eye-catching tracks on the tracklist – the posse cut 1 Train – is now available to stream. A rumbling, Hitboy-fuelled track featuring a sextet of rappers from all across the U.S. at varying degrees of emergent success, it’s a interesting exercise, but as with any cypher, favours forceful and exemplary technicians over accomplished aesthetes – which is a bit of a questionable move for a rapper like Rocky. Unsurprisingly, this one is led by an incredible Danny Brown and the studious pair Kendrick Lamar and Big K.R.I.T., with the rest left somewhere in their wake. You can stream it below and decide for yourself.

‘Long.Live.A$AP’ will be released on 15th January 2013.
