NEW MUSIC: T.I. & A$AP Rocky Take A Walk on the “Wildside”


/ December 15, 2012

T.I. takes a walk with A$AP Rocky on the “Wildside,” a track off his new Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head LP. “That’s the homie man,” Tip told VIBE about the collaboration. “[A$AP Rocky] came down to my house. I’ve had the opportunity to be around him for about 6 months now, and I see a lot of potential in him. I really appreciate the way he values the quality of music. A lot of his shit is different but is accepted and saluted at the same time. He always makes sure that the standard of his work is of a certain quality, and there’s not a lot of little niggas out there that’s really doing that, so I appreciate that over anything.” The two rappers worked with producer No ID on the track. “It’s some gangster shit, I guess you could say its Southern but done No ID’s way,” the “Ball rapper explained. “We’re really talking about where we each come from. It’s going to be a favorite.” The release of T.I.’s oft-delayed eighth studio album is only days away. Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head drops on Dec. 18.
