Major: A$AP Rocky’s ‘Long Live A$AP’ Heads To US #1

5b7cf868225310bb53aeac4465c331ce Major: A$AP Rockys Long Live A$AP Heads To US #1

It may have faced the drama of an unexpected leak, but A$AP Rocky‘s debut LP ‘Long Live A$AP’ is well on its way to beating the odds on the Billboard 200 next week.

For, by way of a fan base who decided to put their money where their mouths are, he is on course to nab the top spot on the chart- marking the first Hip Hop #1 album of the year.

Exciting details below…

Predicted to move units anywhere between the 130-140k figure, the ‘Problem‘ Rapper will top the competitive chart- exceeding expectations held by those who believed its leak would ruin its chances of selling.

Fortunately for him, that didn’t happen making him the latest Rap staple to dominate chart without a smash on the Billboard Hot 100- with fans opting to show their support buy purchasing his albums en masse while paying little to no attention to his featureless singles.

Here in the UK, the project sits atop iTunes Hip Hop albums chart while enjoying the #2 on the overall chart. This, likely to secure it a Top 5 when the market’s Official Charts roll through this Sunday.

Buy the album here!!

    ONLY REAL ARTISTS CAN DO THINGS LIKE THAT. THE DRAKE EFFECT IS WHEN YOU CAN SELL RECORDS REGARDLESS OF A LEAK OR HIT LEAD SINGLES. THIS IS TRUE FAN DEDICATION. GOOD FOR HIM.

    One of the most overrated rappers recently – good beats but mediocre rhymes. Still not seeing Kendrick Lamar’s album!

    These mixtape rappers do the damn thing. Release 100000 mixtapes, build a cult like following, then release an album. Easiest shot at #1. Hopefully jhene will do the same for R&B. :) congrats ASAP your cute ass!!

    They don’t sell much in the end though. Most don’t even go gold…… with the exception of Kendrick Lamar, he’ll probably be the first rap artist to go platinum since Drake…

    His song ‘Fuckin problems’ embodies everything wrong with modern hip hop.
