Famous Dex Taps A$AP Rocky For New Song, “Pick It Up”


Chicago’s own Famous Dex has had a crazy 2017 thus far amid controversy and new music, but he keeps the consistency elevating by dropping another potential club smash. He linked up with A$AP Rocky to give fans a new hit, “Pick It Up.”

The song features Dexter trading bars with the A$AP Mob frontman over the soulful, yet bouncy production from Fki1st and Sosa808. Dex kicks things off with two animated verses while Rocky takes us home with syrupy smooth flows of his own.

In a brief interview with Complex Magazine, Famous Dex explains how “Pick It Up” came together and how it’s different from anything he’s done before.

“‘Pick It Up’ was something very different for me,” explains Dex. “Especially getting ASAP [Rocky] on the record is a big, big look for me. It was kind of different. I did it, and it took time. I’m more of a freestyle rapper and more of a new wave. I’m not like a Jay-Z writer or a Nas, so I just go in there and do my thing. I go off energy.”
