2014 has been another really strong year for the A$AP Mob, with singles like "Hella Hoes" reaffirming their status as one of the hottest cliques on the hip hop scene, and appearances at massive events such as Red Bull's Culture Clash in London. Whereas it might have been Rocky that smashed down the door to the hip hop world a few years ago, it appears that the rest of the mob are more than ready to hold their own weight amongst their peers, as previous Mob releases such as Lords Never Worry have proven in the past.
As christmas inches ever closer, we've been treated to a brand new cut from one of my favourite emcee's around at the moment, A$AP Twelvyy. "Glock Rivers" in yet another slice on New York-tinged hip hop gold, as Twelvyy dissects a typically bumpin' boom bap beat expertly, with a flow that rides the instrumental with optimum ease whilst still lyricall holding some weight behind it, as we see Twelvyy describing his upbringing on the streets of Harlem. The Goldrush directed visuals fit the dark nature of the track, with monochrome shots of Harlem's basketball courts and streets intersected by stunning colour visuals of the NY native mobbing out on big open spaces.
You can peep the video for "Glock Rivers" below, and you can catch Twelvyy on selected dates across the country as part of the Clockwork Indigo tour, featuring Flatbush Zombies & The Underachievers. Peep the dates here.
