Florence Welch, Drake, Kendrick Lamar to feature on A$AP Rocky's debut album
Santigold, Yelawolf, Danny Brown, Action Bronson and Pharrell also appear on 'LongLiveA$AP'
The record will be released on January 15, 2013, and also features appearances from Santigold, Yelawolf, Danny Brown, Action Bronson and Pharrell.
However, the record will not feature 'Ridin'' – his collaboration with Lana Del Rey that was pulled from the KickDrums' recent mixtape.
The New York hip-hop star was originally due to release 'LongLiveA$AP' in September of this year but rescheduled the release date to October 31. He then subsequently shelved the release until 2013 after revealing that the mastering of the record was taking longer than expected, due to his refusal to back down over clearing any of the samples used on the LP.
Explaining the delay, Rocky said: "The issue with my album is I got things on it that’s so out of this world that it's taking so long to get mastered. That’s the issue, and I refuse to take anything off. It's complete, everything is being mastered and cleared right now. Its just so hard to get things cleared, because you got to find people to clear samples."
