And just like that A$AP Mob dropped one of the hottest tapes in 2016, A$AP MOB: COZY TAPES VOL. 1. The album boasts a number of artists such as, Tyler, the Creator, Lil Yachty, Juicy J, BJ the Chicago Kid, Skepta, Lil Uzi Vert, Wiz Khalifa and Offset.
Listen below either through the Apple or Spotify stream.
The Mob held nothing back in this very jiggy tape and paid a tribute to the late leader, A$AP Yams, capturing the very essence Yams embodied before his passing.
“This is the Yams album we’ve been working on,” said Rocky on MTV News.
Mostly notable is A$AP Rocky finessed style, giving us the true meaning of cozy, not to get it mixed up with being “sweat-suited up, with they nappy-ass terry cloth and all that shit, [they] tryna’ look like the homies” (Yamborghini High).
“Yesterday I came through with the Valentino shorts with the fucking white and red pinstripes on the motherfuckers. Came through with the real good goose down bubble jacket with the snow squirrel fur on the top, very cozy, warm, you feel me? Cozy. Then I had the durag hanging down the bow string slinging in the wind. Two tone durag with the red on one side. White on the other side.”
Safe to say the Mobs style has flexed on the way we style ourselves today and this album is just a taste of what they have to offer for time to come. The young trap lords are on the rise and we’re looking forward to the solo projects coming up next year.
A$AP Yams would be smiling today to see how far his blueprint has come along.
Always remember, stay COZY!
