A$AP Rocky posted the artwork for his At.Long.Last.A$AP. (or A.L.L.A.) album on social media. The album cover shows an image of Rocky’s face with a multi-colored splotch on his right cheek, which is reminiscent of the birthmark on A$AP Yams’ face. There is also an image of another face beneath Rocky, and some suggests the image may be Yams. The album cover also shows Rocky with a tattoo of a cross on his face, and it also resembles the cross on Yams’ face. Yams died earlier this year, and the artwork is obviously a tribute to the late A$AP Mob co-founder. The upcoming album has been pushed back from its original release date of May 12th to June 2nd, and Yams has been named as one of the executive producers for At.Long.Last.A$AP. A new song named “Everyday” featuring Mark Ronson, Rod Stewart, and Miguel was just released from the album a couple of days ago.

Rocky revealed to GQ magazine that At.Long.Last.A$AP is his most personal album, and he stated he’s claiming ownership of his legacy with the project. The rapper stated that A.L.L.A. will have a 1960s psychedelic sounds, and his single “Everyday” is indicative of Rocky’s claims. Rocky said that he and Yams worked really hard to ensure A.L.L.A. would be a true representation of who he is. The rapper didn’t want his new project to have a lot of mainstream features, and he vowed the album will not be full of a bunch of “radio singles.” Besides Miguel, Rod Stewart, and Mark Ronson, A.L.L.A. will also feature guest appearances from FKA Twigs, Lykke Li, and Juicy J.

Rocky‘s studio album debut entitled Long. Live. A$AP was a huge commercial success. It peaked at the top of the Billboard 200, UK Albums Chart, and Canadian Albums chart. Drake, Kendrick Lamar, 2 Chainz, Schoolboy Q, Big K.R.I.T., Florence Welsh, and Santigold are some of the artists who were featured on the album. The singles from Long.Live.A$AP include “Goldie,” “F**kin’ Problems” featuring Drake, 2 Chainz, and Kendrick Lamar, “Wild for the Night” featuring Skrillex and Birdy Nam Nam, and “Fashion Killa.” The single “F**kin’ Problems” reached Number 2 on three US singles charts including the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, Hot Rap Songs, and Rhythmic chart. It also impacted the Billboard Hot 100 at Number 8, and the single also sold over two million copies in the US.
