A$AP Rocky took to Twitter to unveil the latest duo of tracks, and to ensure fans that they were indeed “LIT”:

A$AP Ant takes centre stage this week, after delivering a solid back up feature for A$AP Twelvyy on last week’s release, Again. This time Ant is teaming up with MMG’s own Fat Trel to bring us The Way It Go Pt. 2.
The track itself is definitely nothing spectacular, but Ant gives his best A$AP Ferg impression as he navigates his way through a trap inspired beat interwoven with some very tranquil sound effects. Fat Trel is surprisingly the standout here, and proves he can match it with the big boys, after seemingly disappearing into the shadows of Rick Ross‘ label.
Rocky, I normally agree with you, but I’m not too sure about just how lit this week’s tracks are.
It almost pains me to do this, but the second track that has been bestowed upon this week is by far the weakest showing of what has generally been a stellar month of releases. Vlone Thug, featuring Playboi Carti and UnoTheActivist shows exactly what happens when the A$AP Mob aren’t around to add to the overall vibe or lyrical delivery of the song. Whilst the beat is bearable, it is far too repetitive, and the flow of both rappers does little to conjure up many positive impressions.
Perhaps we have just been spoilt for choice as of late; we have been treated to appetite-wheting releases from Ferg, surprise appearances from Danny Brown, as well as some stellar features from Mob members who are often content to play second fiddle to the bigger names amongst the crew.
Here’s hoping that next week spells a return to form for our favourite weekly release.
