"a snappy, 38-minute blast of polished, throwback New York rap." - ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
New York rapper and founding member of the hip-hop powerhouse collective A$AP Mob, A$AP Twelvyy, has released his debut album 12 via A$AP Worldwide / Polo Grounds Music / RCA Records along with a new video for "Hop Out" feat. A$AP Ferg. The album features the likes of A$AP Mob including A$AP Rocky, Joey Bada$$, Flatbush Zombies, Harry Fraud, A$AP P on the Boards, Michael Rapaport, Fredro Starr (Onyx) and more. It is also the first A$AP release during the month of August as part of the Mob's AWGEST takeover. The vintage 80's-inspired video for "Hop Out" feat. A$AP Ferg adds fuel to the flames as Twelvyy's hot streak continues with the torrent of singles released from the album in the past few weeks: including the Sampha sampled 'Strapped', 'Diamonds' ft. A$AP Rocky which also samples Phantogram, indie-band namesake inspired "Yea Yea Yea (Maps)", and the triumphant "Periodic Table."
12 is told through the eyes of a kid looking out his project building window with the desire to cement a legacy. Twelvyy said it best when he announced the album "I'm that old soul mixed with that new technology...It's been a long time comin'. I did my time in the shadows. I am next. I am now. I am forever." Opening track 'Castle Hell' is the harbinger that ushers in the full project which starts in Castle Hill, the Bronx, NY neighborhood that raised him after moving from Harlem. His turbulent journey thereafter is vividly chronicled throughout 12, one which includes meeting the late Steven"A$AP Yams" Rodriguez with whom he helped build one of the most impactful cultural movements in hip-hop history.
