ASAP Rocky Drops New Track “Money Bags Freestyle”

ASAP Rocky is back with another one.

Just days after he delivered “5IVE STAR$” and “ABOVE,” the Harlem rapper came through with a new track called “Money Bags Freestyle.” The song was shared on AWGE’s official Soundcloud account Thursday night and was paired with the updated cover art for his upcoming album (presumably called Dummie).

The song’s description read: “THIS IS A TEST,” just like the descriptions of the previously released tracks. The Dummie title and bright yellow cover art are obvious references to crash dummy tests, which led many fans to wonder if these cuts were, in fact, official singles, or if Rocky was simply “testing” out a new sound. The rapper later took to Instagram to clear up the confusion: “What five star and above were #dummies #asaprocky #ThatsWhyTheyreFree.”

In September of 2017, Rocky teased his upcoming album by posting a screenshot of an article that addressed obesity’s impact on crash dummy models.

In October of 2017, he dished about his upcoming album in an interview with GQ, explaining that it was all about “testing new sounds.”

“People are scared to test new sounds, so they go with what’s current ’cause it’s the easy thing to do. The top 100 songs sound a certain way. People cater more to that because it’s a bigger demographic behind that, or it’s a guaranteed demographic behind that,” he explained. “I prefer to experiment and have my crowd grow with me and to reach new crowds. I don’t just rap—I actually make music. That’s why it takes time. These sonics represent me.”

While we wait for more details about Rocky's new project, you can listen to the “Money Bags Freestyle” below. The track features Babyfather’s “Meditation” produced by Dean Blunt and Arca.

Smokepurpp on Young Thug, Lil Pump, and Dogs

As we learn more about the group of artists first classified as “SoundCloud rappers,” the title feels increasingly inadequate. Smokepurpp is the latest South Florida phenom to break big, recently signing with Alamo Records and landing features from Chief Keef, Travis Scott, and D.R.A.M. for his Deadstar release.

Now that he's fully in the public eye, we wanted to see what Smokepurpp was thinking about during his rise—so we took a trip in Twitter's time machine and asked the Miami rapper what was going through his head when he forgot what a chicken was.  

Watch the latest episode of Trending Topics above, and listen to Deadstar below. 

Catch Smokepurpp live on the Pigeons & Planes stage at ComplexCon, which goes down November 4 and 5 in Long Beach, California. Tickets are on sale​ ​now.​
