The road to A$AP Rocky‘s forthcoming album is paved with surprise-drops. After guesting on Thirty Seconds to Mars‘ recent single “One Track Mind”, the Harlem rapper has his name on a new cut, “Bad Company”. This time, he shares the track with Tennessee newcomer Blocboy JB.
Part flex (“When I say I got beef, they don’t want no beef / When they say they got beef, they don’t wanna eat”) and part confessional (“I got so much beef, I could barely sleep / Paranoia got me losin’ all my Z’s, all day”), the track unspools over an austere trap backbeat accented by tropical-lite melodies in the background. The whole thing is decidedly raw and emanates a lo-fi, unfinished aura. The going here suggests that it’s a loosie and will probably not feature on any new project by Rocky.
