For a second year in a row, Hip Hop/Rap closes out Coachella with Snoop and Dre following last year’s Kayne West. A$AP rocky has been going around with the sweet trip hop beats of Clams Casino. Fitting for Coachella, Frank Ocean (from Oddfuture)’s song “Novocaine” references the fest. Sweet.

A$AP Rocky

23 year old A$AP Rocky, AKA Rakim Mayers, was born to be badass.  At age 12, the Harlem native’s father was sent to jail for selling drugs. The next year, when he was 13, his brother was shot dead. A$AP needed a way out and he knew rapping was his ticket. He started busting out rhymes as early as 8 years old.

Notoriety started coming A$AP’s way with the release of his first two big jams- “Peso” and “Purple Swag.” NYC’s Hot 97 started consistently playing these songs on the airwaves and resulted in A$AP signing a big $3 Million deal with Sony/RCA late last year. Check out his mix tape LiveLoveA$AP.

Listen – “Peso”

Listen- “Celebration”
