XXL’s Songs of the Week (May 23 – May 29)

A$AP Rocky influences at.long.last.asap multiply

 

Whether you came back from Memorial Day with a quietly vicious hangover or the do-or-die imperative to Bring New York Back, this week was about an event album. A$AP Rocky’s sophomore effort, At.Long.Last.A$AP, had superstars spilling off the crowded marquee. The first record from under the A$AP banner to drop since Yams passed earlier this year, ALLA is a purposefully packed affair, with guest turns from Bones, Mos Def and seemingly everyone in between. Just as loud in his own way was the newly minted Boosie BadAzz, whose Touchdown 2 Cause Hell completes his comeback from Angola. Beyond those two albums, there was a smattering of creative loosies from the likes of Chicago’s Mick Jenkins and St. Paul’s Allan Kingdom–not to mention a surprise album drop from a group of Chicago kids. These are the best rap songs of the week ending today, May 29.
