A$AP Mob’s A$AP Rocky has finally decoded the truth behind his new A.L.L.A. solo album and explained what fans can expect from the long-awaited solo effort.

Rocky revealed what his album title stood for and spoke on leaving a mark on the rap game.

“I’m claiming ownership of my legacy. Look at it: At.Long.Last.A$AP. A-L-L-A. Like slang for ‘Allah.’ It’s the return of the god MC. I’m named after Rakim, and I’m finally facing what it means: I was born to do this sh*t. And I hope I get to do it for a very long time.” (GQ)

Recently, Rocky revealed he secluded himself for half a year to work on the new LP.

“A.L.L.A. — it stands for the title of my album. I just don’t want to give out the title yet. The A.L.L.A. is because I was named after the God MC himself, Rakim Allah. And, I’m just basically saying it’s a return of the real shit. I’m not here to swag it out. I ain’t here catwalk it. I’m here to just do me and if y’all don’t like my shit — f*ck it. I’m on me so hard right now. I’m making music and experimenting, making sounds that I never even knew existed. Not to make it sound like this album is going to be a circus in a box or something. But I really pushed myself this time. I secluded myself [for] 6 months. In another country with the phones off.” (VIBE)

Recently, A$AP said he had quietly pieced together and finished his new LP.

“Honestly, it’s finished. I’m mastering it right now. It’s coming soon. Seriously soon,” A$AP said in an interview. “[Surprise albums?] I don’t consider it a surprise — you put it out there and it’s art, that’s the surprise. I hope people are surprised by my album. I don’t know what to expect, I just do what I do.” (Billboard)
