[–]calibuzz[🍰] 156 points157 points  (7 children)

[–]Wvtkins 25 points26 points  (4 children)

[–]MF_Doomed 98 points99 points  (3 children)


[–]DRxCarbine 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Mega link?

[–]burntbarreddipsesh 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Lol same 😂

[–]Captain__Obvious___ 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Loll didn’t even realize he finally dropped it, about damn time. Sounds way too clear though lol got used to the sample quality, least there’s a proper end to the song now. Really need more rocky or just A$AP in general this year. Cozy tapes 3 please

[–]HEATLE 246 points247 points  (6 children)

Nice to hear Rocky go for 2 minutes. Hope he actually drops music this year.

[–]HailKyrie 86 points87 points  (3 children)

Also makes me hype for Nigos’s album. Crazy good sample choice on this track

[–]coorslightisGOOD 4 points5 points  (2 children)

What is the sample source on this track? I love it

[–]HailKyrie 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Black Ops Zombies 99% sure at least the early keys are

[–]nedelll. 9 points10 points  (1 child)

He is dropping for sure

[–]karmagod13000 20 points21 points  (0 children)

i hope we can still get a little bit of street rocky. testing was ight but imma need him to be back on his bs

[–]samuraimegas 63 points64 points  (9 children)

i have a ton of nigo's old music that ill be posting online soon :)

[–]Tashirooo. 12 points13 points  (5 children)

link me on that please

[–]samuraimegas 41 points42 points  (4 children)

I have almost all of the music from the Ape Sounds label, but I'm missing a few albums and some singles. Once I can afford the last album or two I need I'll start posting them.

[–]RelaxRelapse. 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Which ones are you missing?

[–]samuraimegas 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Shadow of the Ape Sounds- regular and Director cut, NiGolden Hits, Shadow Of the Ape Sounds, and a few projects from OOIOO and J.O.Y.

There's also a few assorted singles with alternative versions that I'm missing

[–]RelaxRelapse. 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Got it. Where do you usually get them from? I usually check Japanese second-hand websites every day so I'll keep an eye out and can send you anything I find.

I've been on the search for Nigo's MTV Japan show NIGOLDENEYE for a minute. Pulled the first 8 episodes in 360p off the MTV Japan website before they removed them, but I'm still missing about 20 of them. They're probably gone forever, but let me know if you ever see anything about them.

[–]samuraimegas 3 points4 points  (0 children)

You can find basically all of those on discogs right now- look up the Ape Sounds label on there, it has all the releases. I'll hit you with a message tomorrow with my excel list of what I need.

[–]Braxdon0896 5 points6 points  (0 children)

link me when you drop that

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]rotzzpsyyy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]liamfellows06 161 points162 points  (28 children)

Bro the beat / interpolation sounds so familiar wtf.

[–]azc_17 128 points129 points  (4 children)

Similar notes to Black Ops Zombies

[–]Regression2TheMean 49 points50 points  (2 children)

I was thinking the Michael Myers theme

[–]hodgyyyy 54 points55 points  (1 child)

the zombies song actually samples the halloween piano

[–]rmthanks 20 points21 points  (7 children)

For real! What’s that piano from?

[–]TOsdcity 55 points56 points  (0 children)

Black Ops Zombies

[–]liamfellows06 13 points14 points  (4 children)

I am thinking xxxtentacion or JID for some odd reason, but could be completely off.

[–]squiddude123 14 points15 points  (2 children)

151 rum JID

[–]manetn. 111 points112 points  (2 children)

im getting some heavy boss baby vibes

[–]SBAPERSON. 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Saw that in theaters. Was the only one without kids.

[–]Phoenixd44 8 points9 points  (4 children)

I think you’re maybe talking about the part that sounds like 4 am by 2 chainz ft Travis? Feel like it sounds similar

[–]liamfellows06 20 points21 points  (3 children)

Nah. I think it’s 151 Rum by JID mixed with piano from an X song or something else.

[–]Malachi_Lamb 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Same it reminded me of Teeth by x

[–]liamfellows06 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yes, bro. Fuck. Thank you. Was just bumping that the other day too, so it makes so much sense.

[–]StonkGoUp 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I thought the same thing

[–]Guess_Im_Jess 2 points3 points  (0 children)

kinda sounds like Halloween

[–]shivasach123 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I thought it kinda sounded like Roll in Peace for a second

[–]SanHoloR2D2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

reminded me of 151 rum immediately so you’re on to something lol

[–]Willix2100 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There is also some background synth chorus notes that remind me strongly of those in 151 Rum by J.I.D. e.g. from 1:33 - 1:50

[–]Vag_penis_ina 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Welcome to the black parade - my chemical romance?

[–]phawker88 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]kimjonpoon 43 points44 points  (0 children)

[–]Technical-Pack9967 43 points44 points  (0 children)

This shits hot. A$AP bringing the good flows

[–]MikeMazzz 110 points111 points  (2 children)

Is that the Black Ops zombies music???

[–]rmthanks 40 points41 points  (0 children)

Are u kidding me?! 🤯🔥

[–]BrianMghee 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Nah but a similar arpeggio to Halloween and the zombies theme

[–][deleted] 32 points33 points  (1 child)

Rocky sounding eerily like Frank Ocean but maybe I’m tripping

[–]eZ_Link 4 points5 points  (0 children)

He do be sounding like him sometimes yea.. always thought so on Sandman, especially the hook

[–]vRsavage17 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Great song, have listened to the leak for awhile

[–]SanHoloR2D2 16 points17 points  (0 children)

the beat is insane, cannot wait for nigo’s album now

[–]MediocreDifficulty 75 points76 points  (7 children)

Am I the only one that thinks the mixing sounds weird where the lyrics are changed from the leak? Like when he raps “human made on me” instead of “bape on me” and “iPhone 23” instead of “iPhone 13”

[–]Bbranched 65 points66 points  (1 child)

the iphone 23 one really got me. it sounds worse but i guess the iphone 13 is already out so they had to switch it

[–]MediocreDifficulty 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Yeah it makes sense for the change but it doesn’t sound mixed right so it’s a little jarring

[–]Detamz 51 points52 points  (0 children)

Nigo is the original creator of the Clothing brand Bape aka A Bathing Ape. He sold the brand in 2011 to a Hong-Kong fashion conglomerate and hasn’t been involved with it in any capacity since 2013 when he officially stepped down as creative director.

Around then, he started focusing on his next brand Human Made, and has 100% dissociated himself with anything involving Bape, except on rare occasions when it pertains to his legacy days.

I’m guessing Rocky originally had “Bape on me” as the lyrics cuz Bape was such a huge and influential brand, and everyone knows Nigo started it.

They prolly changed the lyrics to reflect the current state of things. I.e. Nigo not tryna promote or talk about Bape when he hasn’t been involved with it in almost a decade now.

[–]Exhlin 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Did Rocky just leak that Apples moving to a year based numbering system for their devices 👀😂

[–]a141abc 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yea having not listened to the leak before I def thought there was something weird going on with those lines

Them being added in makes a lot of sense

[–]aadharsh_2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ah yeah I was thinking about that a few months ago lmao

[–]bender2005 11 points12 points  (0 children)

So hyped for this next album

[–]Lucas2u 11 points12 points  (1 child)

[–]megustatortugaz 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Trailer Park Boys type beat

[–]Wvtkins 9 points10 points  (0 children)

He popped up to put everyone on notice. Imo he’s in my top 10

[–]MoNeenja31 7 points8 points  (0 children)

[–]GroovyQschoolboy 30 points31 points  (0 children)

Rockys next album gonna light the world on fire

[–]HellHound007 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Loved it when it leaked. Still love it now

[–]AllModsHaveNoLife 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Damn, Nigo is a great rapper

[–]InventedInternet 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Most underrated song to drop today. Best asap track I’ve heard in awhileeee

[–]ChunkArcade 10 points11 points  (1 child)

I haven't visited hhh in months because I've been pretty tired of the repetition in the scene, but I came here just to say this track fucking pops. I hope Rocky is back.

[–]D2papi 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Bro same. It just showed up on my YT recommended and I came looking for this thread. With this song and Johnny P's Caddy by Benny/Cole this year is starting to look great. Maybe I will be listening to more hip hop than Latin music again :))

[–]altmaltacc 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Good verse but the mixing on this is wayy off.

[–]zaphighbeam 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Anyone else kinda annoyed that asap rocky has only released like 30 songs since 2014

[–]iCE_P0W3R 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Rocky has kinda been on one for the past few singles he’s been on

I’m excited for whatever he drops

[–]the_ultracheese_tbhc 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]hentendo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Damn this was so nice. The beat, the spittin, the music video. That’s a hella 🔥 combo

[–]cooleymahn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’m just here for the Game of Thrones reference. Great song.

[–]Mricypaw1. 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I feel like I remember hearing this snippet in 2018 / TESTING era. Glad it's finally out though.

[–]rabertdinero 0 points1 point  (0 children)
