A$AP Rocky to release instrumental tape


We've been hearing rumors about this for a while, but here's a confirmation from the man himself: A$AP Rocky's trying his hand at production on his next record, Beauty and the Beast: Slowed Down Sessions, Chapter 1, which'll be an entirely instrumental beat tape. Rocky told MTV he'd been working on some "druggy, ambient" beats that match up slowed-down classical tones with Wu Tang-style rhythms, which sounds just perfect to us. He'll release Chapter 1 for free download sometime before the end of the summer, so keep an eye out!
