Recover from your double take. Yes, there are six features on this A$AP Rocky song, and, yes, it is produced by the “Niggas in Paris” maestro himself. It’s somewhat surprising though that A$AP would bring all of this attention-grabbing talent together for a song without a single hook. Hit-Boy does his thing, though, giving the seven, very different emcees a classic, hard-hitting boom-bap beat to run train on for six minutes. The song is breathless—taking no time between each rapper’s verse, each of which manages to feel furious without wearing the song out. You’ll have this one on repeat for a minute. LongLiveA$AP drops January 15.

A$AP Rocky – “1Train” (f. Kendrick Lamar, Joey Bada$$, Yelawolf, Danny Brown, Action Bronson & Big K.R.I.T.)

Charlotte Aitchison’s second LP is a warhead, a sonic sour bomb that conceals sneering attitude and caustic kiss-offs beneath an initially shimmering pop sheen.
