A$AP Rocky link up A$AP Ant on twisted freestyle, ‘Mario Kart’Screen Shot 2018 08 20 At 2.19.57 PM

A$AP Mob is back. This time, A$AP Ant and A$AP Rocky connect on a new record titled “Mario Kart.” The freestyle serves as an exclusive to AWGE, Rocky’s creative agency. Its loose flow runs a little over two minutes and sees both artists trading bars over a dark, illuminating production. Save for the very subtle “Mario Kart” aspect, as sound effects of cars speeding on open roads are sprinkled throughout. These accents are a bit difficult to perceive at first, yet add an unmistakable and ironically playful flair to the finished product. Ant shared the cover art to the AR + FRANS/DJ Nick-produced single to his 167K followers on Instagram, crediting Unkle Bernz.

Tyler, The Creator reunites Odd Future at Low End Theory’s final installment, and drops a new music video with A$AP RockyTyler The Creator

Low End Theory unplugged its sound system for the final time with a packed house on Wednesday, August 8. The bittersweet event brought droves of avid supporters for the send off, and even featured an Odd Future reunion. The closing of LA’s beloved club night went out with a bang, with Tyler, the Creator set to headline. In a twist of sorts, a mini-reunion ensued with Earl Sweatshirt, Syd, Hodgy Beats, and more. The group’s former factotum went on to mention The Airliner, where the beloved experimental hip-hop and electronic club night took place every Wednesday for over a decade, was in fact where Odd Future had their first show.

Attendees of the sold out event had a chance to hear Wolf Haley’s version of Gucci Mane‘s “Lemonade,” and “Orange Juice.” Biz Markie was there to capture the visuals.

Oh, and A$AP Rocky showed up too. Low End’s send off was quite the affair. Tyler and Rocky’s club appearance was closely followed by a new drop from the two rappers in the new clip for “See You Again” from 2017’s Flower Boy. Stirring anticipation for a collaborative project between the A$AP Mob and Odd Future frontmen is starting to build, and hopefully it materializes soon.
