A$AP Mob scrap plans to release collaborative album ‘LORD’

A$AP Yams confirms next two releases from group will be new solo material from A$AP Rocky and A$AP Nast

‘LORD’, the collaborative album from A$AP Mob, has been scrapped.

The album was due for release in September but did not arrive and, in a Q&A with fans on Tumblr, Mob member A$AP Yams confirmed that the album has now been scrapped with A$AP Rocky’s next solo album coming “very soon.”

The album was due to be the follow-up to 2013 mixtape ‘Lords Never Worry’ and was set to feature the previously released ‘Hella Hoes’, ‘Trillmatic’, ‘See Me’ and ‘Xscape.’

Elsewhere in the Q&A, Yams teased a potential project with Schoolboy Q and A$AP Rocky, stating that the two rappers have been comparing schedules to “get a whole week” together in the studio. Additionally, he spoke about a rivalry with Dipset and mentioned how Rocky’s new album is unlikely to feature Skrillex as he “hated” their song ‘Wild For The Night’, blaming “label politics” for its inclusion on 2013’s ‘LongliveA$ap.’

Meanwhile, on Twitter, Yams states that the next A$AP release will be from A$AP Nast next month. There has been no mention of new music from A$AP Ferg, who released his debut album ‘Hood Pope’ in 2013, or A$AP Twelvy.

Earlier this year A$AP Rocky previewed two new songs from his forthcoming instrumental mixtape ‘Beauty and the Beast – Slowed Down Sessions Ch. 1’.

A$AP Mob will perform a one-off show in Manchester as part of The Warehouse Project in October. The group are set for an appearance at Store Street in Manchester on October 28.
