The first quarter of 2013 is proving to have more action than the fourth quarter of 2012. Several artists have albums planned to be released early in the year. J. Cole and Joe Budden have January release dates, meanwhile 50 Cent plans to release his album in February. Now, A$AP Rocky joins this list of first quarter releases.
Helping put Harlem back on the map, A$AP Rocky has been promoting Long.Live.A$AP for well over a year. Initially due for a late 2012 release, A$AP Rocky pushed the album back. With anticipation still high, A$AP Rocky offered the fans treats via Twitter.
A$AP Rocky released the official cover of Long.Live.A$AP, right when fans were beginning to wonder what was happening. But, A$AP Rocky returned right in time with an early Christmas present. Proving he was still working, A$AP Rocky released the official artwork of his album, along with the January 15 release date.
