In a very beautifully visualised nod to the hallucinogenic drug, Harlem’s A$AP Rocky dropped a video for new track “L$D” (or LOVE x $EX x DREAMS) in the past 24 hours. The rapper originally sent the video to for blessings from the ‘Based God’ Lil B with instructions to leak the video, who premiered it via Twitter (we’re not even lying). God bless the Based God.
The track comes off the upcoming album At.Long.Last.A$AP (A.L.L.A for short), and we’ve already seen that the album is going to be a depart from his usual style with the varying styles of already released tracks “M’s” and “Everyday“.
The track features Rocky singing over guitars and a light drum beat, with him going into a rap verse at around three-quarters of the way through the song.
The video, directed by Dexter Navy and Rocky himself, is a fantastic Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas or Enter The Void kind of homage, following Rocky through his eyes as he embarks on an epic acid trip around the city.
