A$AP Mob’s new “Lord$ Never Worry” mixtape has been met with a overall positive response. To call them original would an overstatement but they’ve managed to mix together numerous styles into something unique that standouts among today’s artists.
They have a mix of Mobb Deep, Wu-Tang and Thugs-n-Harmony with their style of rapping along with a Southern Influence in the way they sound. If I had heard A$AP Mob without knowing they were from New York, I would’ve thought they were southern or from the West Coast.
It’s not a bad thing by any stretch, it’s just something you notice as soon as you start to listen to their music.
The mixtape had great transitions, each track was in the right place and the features made sense.
Features include Danny Brown who’s parasitic rap style fits perfectly with A$AP Mob’s style, the same can be said for the Flatbush ZOMBiES feature. Jim Jones’ appearance on “Freeze ” gave the track that classic Harlem sound.
Raekwon’s feature on “Underground Killa” was another track that gave you that good ol NYC sound.
Overall the tape is pretty solid, I’m not a big fan A$AP Mob and couldn’t really tell them apart except for A$AP Rocky, but I think these guys have something worth checking out and I think your going to hear allot more from these guys.
