This Saturday ASAP Rocky will be bringing his live show to Glasgow for the first time, when he plays The Arches. The Harlem born and raised rapper/video director has been surfing a huge wave of success since the release of the mixtape LiveLoveAsap in 2011 and has really brought something new to the hip hop table.
ASAP Rocky and his crew ASAP Mob are unlike any rappers you have seen before, he has a flow and speed that sounds straight out of L.A while the beats they make and use are from producers you would not normally associate with this genre, resulting in a sound that is unique and fresh in a scene that has been needing a change.
Add to this you have the whole crew's passion for male fashion and grooming, they all like to dress in the latest catwalk collections such as Rick Owens and Comme des garcons. He wants to be more than just another rapper, he wants to be a fashion icon, mixing streetwear with fashion to create a look on a rapper we have never seen before. His new album is expected to drop in September check out the 2011 mixtape here.
This show is a must see, The Arches is an ideal location to get a more intimate gig because the way the Young MC is going the next time he's in Glasgow he will be playing a sell out arena show. Get your tickets here.
