It looks as if there may be a new king of New York’s rap scene. The efforts of the veterans, namely Nas, cannot be overlooked. However, A$AP Rocky has created new energy. Currently, everyone from his native Harlem to the strip clubs in Miami are blasting his “Fuckin’ Problem” single, featuring 2 Chainz, Drake, and Kendrick Lamar.
