A$AP Rocky released Testing, his third studio album, last year via ASAP Worldwide, Polo Grounds Music, and RCA Records. The experimental rapper is on the road, and he performs at The Anthem on Sunday, Jan. 20!

In an interview with GQ, Rocky said: “My new album is really about testing new sounds. People are scared to test new sounds, so they go with what’s current ’cause it’s the easy thing to do.”

“The top 100 songs sound a certain way. People cater more to that because it’s a bigger demographic behind that, or it’s a guaranteed demographic behind that. I prefer to experiment and have my crowd grow with me and to reach new crowds. I don’t just rap— I actually make music. That’s why it takes time. These sonics represent me,” he added.

In a review for Consequence of Sound, Bansy Gonzalez says A$AP Rocky stands out from his peers.

“Testing is loud, frenetic, spastic, and about as vibrant as rap can be. The songs are busy, crowded with radiant instrumentation and stacked vocals, and rarely take time to breathe. It’s a welcome addition to a genre that has become so occupied with spacey, bare-bones operations and overly simplistic results,” Bansy said.
