Brooklyn was the location yesterday as Fool’s Gold Records kicked off their fourth annual Day Off concert. The line-up was filled with fan favorites like A$AP Ferg, A$AP Rocky, El-P, Killer Mike and Danny Brown. Check out the footage captured by EMETakeover which chronicles portions of each artist’s set as they hit the stage and put on a dope performance.
A$AP Rocky and the A$AP Mob recently paid Funkmaster Flex a visit on HOT 97 and discussed a number of topics during a candid interview. After being asked by Flex about Kendrick’s “Control” verse, Rocky decides to brush off the TDE rapper’s “King of New YorK” line and jokes the Compton rapper is either crazy or smoking crack. A$AP Ferg also steps up to the microphone and proclaims: “What’s a king to a lord.” However, Rocky does share his thoughts on the move being good for Hip Hop and the art form’s competitive nature. All in all, the mob makes it clear they weren’t offended by Kendrick’s verse and tackle much more during their lengthy and in-depth conversation with Flex.
Big Sean sent the internet into a frenzy after debuting a new track titled “Control” featuring Kendrick Lamar and Jay Electronica. Though every MC delivered their respective verse, Lamar definitely stole the show after crowning himself the king of New York and aiming his sights on several big name artists such as J. Cole, Drake, Meek Mill, A$AP Rocky and more. At one point in the song the Compton native raps, “I’m usually homeboys with the same n*ggas I’m rhyming with/But this is Hip Hop and them n*ggas should know what time it is.” Though Lamar’s lyrics only appear to be competitively driven, don’t be surprised if one of the rappers referenced in the lyrical assault capitalizes on the opportunity to go bar for bar with the Hip Hop star.
Twitter has been blowing up since Funkmaster Flex premiered the new track. Big Sean also provided some insight behind the song when he clarified that due to sample clearing issues, “Control” was unable to make the final track list on Hall Of Fame and subsequently was leaked for our listening pleasure. As if the G.O.O.D. Music rapper’s latest offering couldn’t get any better, Jay Electronica decides to show-up and deliver a memorable verse. Take a listen to what all the fuss is about below.
Irvine, Calif. was the location for the latest stop on the 2013 Under The Influence of Music Tour which showcased solid acts such as Harlem native A$AP Rocky. As Rocky finished up his set, he decided to close things out by showing support to fellow A$AP Mob member, A$AP Ferg, by rocking out with the crowd to his new single “Shabba” off his upcoming Trap Lord LP.
Overseas production duo Cookin’ Soul serve up a remix to A$AP Ferg’s recent single “Shabba” off his forthcoming album Trap Lord. Incorporating samples from Jamaican dancehall artist Shabba Ranks, Cookin’ Soul give the track a bit of a different sound with some deep 808 bass and claps but more or less stick to the formula that made the original a smash. Take a listen and download the official Cookin’ Soul remix to “Shabba” below.
P. Reign drops his new music video for “We Them Niggas” featuring A$AP Rocky.

Directed by Footage, the visual is like night and day as P. Reign is decked out in all black surrounded by his crew of goons while Rocky takes the cocaine white approach for his respective half. Check out the video below and let us know what you think about the collaborative effort between the Toronto rapper and Harlem’s A$AP Mob front man.
