A$AP Twelvyy – “Strapped” [Video] / “12” [Album]

If you’re into hip-hop, you’ve probably heard of the A$AP Mob by now.
With A$AP Rocky and A$AP Ferg being the “stars” of the crew, it’s time to formally introduce one of the lesser known members: A$AP Twelvyy.

The Bronx native just released his debut album, simply called “12”. And if you’re a fan of both, traditional New York hip-hop and the Mob‘s modern soundscape, then you should give this album a spin asap (pun intended).

12 tracks (+ 2 skits), no fillers, featuring his A$AP clique, Joey Bada$$ and the Flatbush Zombies.
