You live, laugh and got to love A$AP Rocky and the entire A$AP Mob. The Harlem collective, with Rocky in the lead, recently dropped the popular mixtape, Live Love A$AP, a project that has moved the masses. The EP offers a medley of genres and hip-hop styles including the southern chop & screw with the up-town swag of New York rap. It should come as no surprise that after one project the talented, A$AP Rocky and the entire A$AP MOB would catapult into mainstream music.
While hip-hop seems to be their lane of choice, make no mistake these young rock stars have much to offer and the brains to stay afloat in this industry. Driven by the dream to succeed despite their past trials and hardships, a group of articulate young men entered the headquarters of Downtown Locker Room last Tuesday prior to their Baltimore show. Always Strive and Prosper is about more than just living the ‘trill life’, but truly bases their movement on spreading the word of positivity and inspiration to young men who have also been dealt the hand of life.
On getting their music to the masses:
Just being trill, just being us you know just living the life that we live… We all help each other especially now my brother Rocky
On how the A$AP Movement started:
The big homie Yamborgini [Yams] another big homie of ours H80 put it together in about  and started out putting the unit together to make it stronger and we here.
On How Harlem Hardships have influence their music:
Cause you don’t ever wanna go back to that shit…
On what’s good in the DMV:
Ya’ll got a lot of Good people in the DMV, My man A$AP Ant, Fat Trel…It’s a good vibe.
On variations of Cannibus:
Purp! Purple! Everything is Purple. We were on that Purple drank and that Purple….
