The bromance between A$AP Rocky and Tyler, The Creator is one of hip-hop’s purest. Yet throughout the copious banter, fans remained stalwart in their desire for musical unity. Now, it would appear their wish has been granted. Enter WANG$AP, the joint venture between Rocky and Tyler,
After briefly leaking last night, Tyler made the song available on his Youtube Channel. The track, which borrows the instrumental from Monica and Kanye West’s 2003 hit “Knock Knock,” finds both parties sightseeing in Paris, channeling another like-minded duo, Watch The Throne. From the sound of it, both parties have sharpened the flow for the occasion, which is sure to please though seeking rap in its purest form. The joint endeavor already looks promising, with the visuals providing everything you might expect from such a meeting of the minds: charisma, swagger, culture, humor, and effortless flow.
Though WANG$AP has been slapped with the eternal bane of hip-hop fans worldwide – “coming soon” – one has to wonder if the pair will hold true to their word. In the meantime, get yourself hyped with “Potato Salad.”
