The Harlem, New York native popped up at a Kid Cudi concert over the weekend.
Clad in his "Satellite Academy Space Suit," he performed some Cudder classics and new material off his latest album Satellite Flight: The Journey to Mother Moon including "Balmain Jeans." He also brought out A$AP Rocky and King Chip for his Indicud cut "Brothers," and treated the crowd to a previously unreleased song. (Rap-Up)
Recent plans were for Rocky's A$AP Mob L.O.R.D. album to land on store shelves earlier this month.
ASAP Mob is releasing their heavily anticipated L.O.R.D. group album on March 4th. The collective cut will feature new collaborations from ASAP Rocky, A$AP Ferg, ASAP Twelvyy, ASAP Nast, ASAP Ant, and we're assuming an all-star supporting cast of guest appearances. Since an official track list and cover art have yet to surface, stay tuned for more information. (XXL Mag)
