    If 2013 belonged to one rapper, it was A$AP Rocky and rightfully so.

    New York's new savior burst out the gate with the best debut of the year and a new hip-hop classic. Long.Live.A$AP ushers in a new Golden era of rap music for Harlem. Rocky can do it all. On the fiery opener "Long Live ASAP", he unleashes impenetrable verses driven by the gunshot bang of lines like "I thought I'd probably die in prison" before culminating on hauntingly harmonious singing from the man himself. Singles like "Goldie" and "Fuckin' Problems" remain simultaneously hypnotic and hard, and Rocky even manages to churn out a banger unlike anything else on the planet with "Wild for the Night".

    It's on the likes of "Suddenly" though that the world gets to hear just how powerful and poetic of an MC he is though. Rap belongs to him now. LONG.LIVE.A$AP.
