    His major-label debut proves he's more than a magnetic hedonist.

    In many ways Long.Live.A$AP is an album of the present.

    It is a step up for Rocky and the perfect documentation of today's new forefront in hip-hop. [Feb-Mar 2013, p.88]
  4. Unsure whether he wanted to create a sunny, party album, gangstafest, or a record of cool pop vibes, Rocky seems to have tried to make them all, and with minor successes in all departments, he sacrifices something stronger.
  5. Rocky's rhymes are believable when reminiscing about growing up poor.

    If there's a knock to be had against the Harlem rapper, it's that he lacks an original presence. So it's curious that for his major-label debut he's opted to further venture down the rabbit hole of references, loading Long.Live.A$AP with a bevy of guests with personalities far more distinctive than his own.

    Long.Live.A$AP, his major-label debut, is both cunning and desperate in its attempts to please every possible demographic without looking like it's trying too hard.
