Long Live A$AP, released in 2012, is a standout album in A$AP Rocky’s career despite it only being his second album released. 

Rocky focuses heavily on his vocals throughout this album. Popular tracks, such as “LVL” and “Fashion Killa,” feature these impressive vocals, along with a catchy hook. 

Other tracks, such as “1Train” and “Ghetto Symphony,” focus more on the storytelling of Rocky’s game, with features such as Kendrick Lamar and Drake. These features were huge for Rocky’s career, as they highlighted his impressive musical talent.

Songs such as “Long Live A$AP” and “Angels” have a similar flow to “Peso” and “Wassup,” which were released on Rocky’s first album, Live Love A$AP.

Even though A$AP Rocky was only 24 when he released Long Live A$AP, the album was still a huge success for him and the genre of hip-hop.
