76. A$AP Rocky
“Purple Swag”


There’s plenty of music about getting stoned, and plenty more that sounds like its makers were imparied, but “Purple Swag” might actually get you high. Everything from the md-track irruption of a screwed-down chunk of A$AP Rocky’s “Peso” to the cool, emphatic control of his flow to the queasy lean of the production to the vaguely dream-like video makes your head swim a little. It’s the kind of song where the first time you listen to it you feel like might wake up a few days later in a “FUCK SWAG” t-shirt. Everything will be purple.
