A$AP Rocky-Fuckin' Problem ft. 2 Chainz, Drake and Kendrick Lamar


Featuring four of hip-hop’s biggest names, the feedback from various avenues has been mixed thus far, but I’m definitely enjoying this one from Rocky’s upcoming LongLiveA$AP album.

The beat is subdued in their presence but there’s enough to work with, with 40 pulling in a high tempo percussion to create energy, whilst soft electronic melodies roll around for some atmosphere. Throughout the verses, each rapper is able to experiment with more than one flow, for which you’ve got to credit 40′s beat work. A$AP’s on the opener and keeps things as confident and arrogant as ever, though it’s a more solid than spectacular performance, whilst 2 Chainz and Drake share hook duty, with Chainz’s rough energy outdoing Drake’s nasal delivery. The latter also delivers a verse that starts poorly but hugely improves, with Drake’s flows increasing in speed and accuracy for a short period that’s arguably the track’s highlight. Kendrick closes with a good verse with watertight flow execution, particularly the delivery towards the verse end which catches the beat perfectly. All of the ingredients to be a huge mainstream favourite and a popular lead single for Rocky.
