A$AP Rocky has been killing the game every since he dropped his debut album, Long.Live.A$AP, back in 2013. Hits like “Peso”and “Goldie” put a spotlight the Harlem rapper and turned him into a huge force in hip-hop. With a track record like Rocky’s if he offers up some praise for you as a rapper that is big.
In a recent interview with Billboard, A$AP Rocky did just that. He spoke about Lil Uzi Vert and compares the new rapper to Lil Wayne. So, number one he got a compliment from A$AP and number two he was compared to a major hip-hop veteran, Weezy.
A$AP Rocky literally said, “His style, his approach and his voice – I don’t think I’ve heard somebody as raspy since [Lil] Wayne”. It’s got to feel good for Lil Uzi to hear those words from Rocky.
It’s clear that A$AP and Uzi approve of each other’s rap skills since they both collaborated with A$AP Ferg on the “New Level (Remix)”. Maybe we will see another collab from these two rapper in the future!
For now listen to the “New Level” collab below.
