A$AP Rocky Announces New Album Release

A$AP Rocky has revealed the release date for his highly anticipated new album, Don’t Be Dumb. Fans are eagerly counting down to August 30th, the day they can finally dive into Rocky’s latest project.

Reflecting on his collection, Rocky stated, “America in itself has a lot of historical values.

Rocky’s Inspiration

Delving deeper into the inspirations behind his work, Rocky elaborated, “I pull inspirations from all of that…refugees, incarcerations, mass incarcerations. I’ve been subject to all those things. I’m very familiar with all those things and for me, this is just me sharing my ghetto expression.” His words resonate with raw authenticity, offering a glimpse into the personal and societal struggles that fuel his creativity.
