Video: ASAP Rocky – Purple Kisses

The current A$AP Raider Klan beef has me all the more excited to hear A$AP Mob’s upcoming album Lord$ Never Worry.  Despite their rivalry they are both working with a style steeped in the dark and screwed world of 90s southern hip-hop. ‘Purple Kisses’ is one of Rocky’s clearest homages to the genre with a slow, vibed out beat with flows that are as technically impressive as they are hypnotic.  Anyone who listened to LIVELOVEA$AP probably knows that Rocky’s reputation as a swag rapper doesn’t do credit to his actual talent and ‘Purple Kisses’ further proves this as he is able to jump around between speeds and paces on his verses.  And of course the video shows Rocky enjoying some of his favorite things, weed and girls.
