The A$AP Mob is just getting started.
It's been a busy end of the summer for the A$AP Mob, who released Cozy Tapes Vol. 2: Too Cozy -- the second installment of the crew's collaborative album series, last weekend. A week before that, fans got A$AP Ferg's Still Striving mixtape, and a couple of weeks before that, A$AP Twelvvy released his debut album, 12. According to the Mob leader A$AP Rocky, the onslaught of new music has only just begun.
The Mob recently sat down with XXL, and during the interview, Rocky revealed, "My album is about to drop ASAP." It's been over two years since Rocky's last solo album, A.L.L.A. (At.Long.Last.A$AP), and he hasn't put out a single in the time since. Little is known about what the A.L.L.A. follow-up will sound like, though there's no doubt it will be one of the most eagerly anticipated albums to drop in the latter half of 2017 -- if Rocky makes good on his promise to release it "ASAP," that is.
Rocky went on to disclose that almost every other member of the Mob also has a project on the way. Rocky confirmed that A$AP Ant (aka YG Addie), A$AP Nast, Key!, and Smooky MarGielaa are each prepping their respective projects. And if that isn't enough, Rocky also said that Ferg is ready to follow up Still Striving with a proper studio album, which will be his first since last year's Always Strive and Prosper. There aren't many available details regarding the upcoming Mob releases, except that Key! is planning to drop his Live Slow, Die Old project before the crew embarks on its "Too Cozy" tour, which kicks off on Sept. 23.
Young Bronx native Smooky MarGielaa is the newest member of the Mob. Rocky first took notice of MarGielaa when the 15-year-old rapper snuck into a club in the Bronx and crashed the stage for a shutdown performance. MarGielaa is featured on the Cozy Tapes Vol. 2 tracks "BYF," "Get the Bag," and "Bahamas." His debut project will be called A Tribe Called Grape.
When asked about when fans can expect to receive all of the aforementioned projects, Rocky replied, "ASAP. This year."
In addition to all of the Mob emcees, Cozy Tapes Vol. 2 features Playboi Carti (part of Rocky's AWGE collective), Gucci Mane, Big Sean, ScHoolboy Q, Jaden Smith, and more. Stream the 17-track album here.
