Also playing around with new sounds is A$AP Rocky, who delivered two new joints, “Above” and “5IVE $TAR$.”
While the former is a short and sweet track about being “on anotha level,” the latter features the A$AP Mob member rapping over a trap-heavy banger.
Preceding his third album, ‘Testing,’ Rocky explains his wanting to experiment with new styles, claiming,
“My new album is really about testing new sounds. People are scared to test new sounds, so they go with what’s current ’cause it’s the easy thing to do.The top 100 songs sound a certain way. People cater more to that because it’s a bigger demographic behind that, or it’s a guaranteed demographic behind that. I prefer to experiment and have my crowd grow with me and to reach new crowds.”

Releasing the first single from his upcoming March-due album, Ace Hood releases a new single “Uber.”
In addition to last year’s first single “Be Calm,” his second features a different vibe, finding a laid back Ace spilling a couple taxi cab confessions.
Additionally, the track follows his mixtape ‘Trust The Process‘ released last year.

While gearing up to release new tracks with Chris Brown and Scott Storch, Joyner Lucas dropped his Meek Mill-assist “Run It,” produced by Timbaland.
