“First Dim The Lights, Close The Drape Blinds, Then I Scratch That Kitty Word To My K9s!…”
Its been a year since A$AP Mobb released their debut, Lord$ Never Worry, to the A$AP heads by declaring the take over of the game by the young Lords. Despite claims that the only reputable member of the A$AP Mobb roster was the presumed leader, A$AP Rocky himself, their debut showed that there were other talented folks around. But a year later, the only track from the album I loved so much features Rocky and Jim Jones himself, “Freeze” . Their Harlem connection, on the heels of Jones’ claim that Rocky sounds like him “in his heyday,” recognizes Rocky and his crew cementing their lineage as the successors of the Cam’Ron x Diplomats legacy. The patience that both MCs shows while discribing their escapades does something to the core…and I have to listen to it every morning. I dont even want to try to explain why the song, with its disrepectful tone, is so motivating. “Freeze” is just to be felt.
