To celebrate the recently released ‘Long Live A$AP‘ and our review of this great new hip hop release, today we’re featuring the track “Wild For The Night.” There’s a lot going on in this song: there’s the screwed and chopped intro and various moments throughout the track, there’s the signature production and beat work from the now infamous Skrillex and incredibly tight flows from both A$AP and guest rapper Birdy Nam Nam. For a New Yorker, A$AP understands the nuances of the Houston rap sound, so as a native of the “Screwston” area it’s good to hear our hometown style creeping into the mainstream, even if it’s courtesy of a non-Texan. This song is like a modern summit of sounds happening in popular music right now. On paper it seems like it would be too many things happening and once, but it comes together in a surprisingly awesome way. It’s the sort of song to crank up while getting ready for a wild night out or to blast from your car as roll through the streets. This song is a fun banger – listen to it with some purple drank and get crunk.
