We’re All Going to Have to Wait a Little Bit Longer for A$AP Rocky’s LongLiveA$AP

It’s been a long wait for A$AP Rocky’s LongLiveA$AP, which has been delayed more times than we can count. (To be fair to him, though, we can’t count very high.) Now the Harlem rapper has announced that his major label debut has been pushed back again—but fear not fans, it’s only because the record is just that good.
In an interview with WiLD 94.9′s Nessa, A$AP Rocky explained that LongLiveA$AP probably won’t come out until sometimes in early 2013, and like many rappers, reassured fans that the projects’ delays were born out of a desire to get everything completely right:
The issue with my album is I got things on it that’s so out of this world that it’s taking so long to get mastered. That’s the issue, and I refuse to take anything off. It’s complete. Everything is being mastered and cleared right now. Its just so hard to get things cleared, because you got to find people to clear samples. It takes a long time, and that’s why it keeps getting pushed back from Halloween to September 11th. I want to say it’s looking like top of the year, first quarter because it makes no sense to put out a album in December.
Will the album be as good as A$AP Rocky claims? We’ll find out … eventually.
