New York rapper A$AP Rocky is gassing fans up about his long-awaited Testing album. The hip-hop star has opened up and dished out details on the mysterious solo effort.

In a new interview, Rocky revealed he started working on Testing in 2015 and has focused on delivering some game-changing sounds.

“I’ve discovered sounds that I’ve never heard before, so I’m trying to manifest all of that into my new stuff,” Rocky explains. “Do you ever hear people when they describe that LSD experience and they tell you about colors that they never seen before? That’s what I’m trying to describe. It’s like the manifestation of drugs…” He chuckles. “…without being so vocal about it.” (Complex)

A$AP also discussed working on new music with Kanye West and aiming to sell major units in the project’s opening week.

“Kanye turned the hotel we were staying at into a Yeezy compound,” he says. “He was designing sneakers in one suite, making music in one suite, and I was making music in my suite. It was crazy. We shut down the whole hotel.” He’s eager to let fans hear the new music. “It’s an experience,” he says. “It’s jiggy. It’s lit. I’m tryna go platinum first week. Let’s get it. On some Cardi B shit times 12, you heard?” (Complex)

A few weeks ago, Rocky acknowledged inspiring some other musicians with his look and rap style.

“Yeah, I do,” Rocky said when asked if he agreed with Funk Flex suggesting other artists have copied his style. “It is. Yeah, I feel like, to get in the game you gotta have like braids or dreadlocks, gold teeth, charisma. You gotta have a fashion sense. Everybody try to at least have one. I feel like before us, there were people with fashion like Kanye or Pharrell or something like that or Puff before them. Now that’s standard. You gotta have some type of freshness. We brought that back into hip-hop. But aside from fashion goes, just the way the monotone, the way I would pitch my voices or just the nuances or my beat selections or the way I produce songs, I feel like a lot of kids now inherited that. But with that being said, that’s what I do it for. I’m not trying to point down on anybody or whatever. I know who Flex was directly talking to, it was probably established artists who have no right or business doing that type of stuff from contemporary artists but it is what it is. We’re living in a day and time where none of this sh*t matters anyway. So it’s all smiles.” (“Desus & Mero”)

Recently, Hot 97 radio veteran Funk Flex called out rap star Travis Scott for jacking Rocky’s style.
