The Harlem rapper will produce a different kind of album this summer, and it’ll be free!

ASAP Rocky Releasing Instrumental Album

In this article…

Harlem rapper ASAP Rocky is switching to the producer's chair this summer for something a little bit different.

After releasing his debut album, Long. Live. ASAP this past January, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, Rocky's decided to try his luck at a release sans lyrics.

He first announced his instrumental effort in an interview with Wild 94.9 while on the road in April, but excluded details. In an interview with MTV, Rocky opened up and explained the sound behind the new release, titled Beauty and the Beast: Slowed Down Sessions, Chapter 1.

"It's really druggy, ambient shit," he said. "The name of it is 'Beauty and the Beast: Slowed Down Sessions, Chapter 1.' And it's because everything is like classical beautiful music and boom-bap Wu-Tang shit mixed together. It's slowed down and it's real vibey, with no lyrics. I feel like it's gonna get people through the summer."

Also, on top of all this, the album will be free and distributed online by ASAP himself. In his own words, "It's gonna be like a real album, but it's gonna be free."

The release is expected to be pretty soon. I wouldn't be surprised if ASAP dropped it next week or soon after. 

In the meantime, here's "Wild For The Night" off of Long. Live. ASAP to listen to.
