A$AP Rocky Brings Rap Skills to Freeman Coliseum

As hip-hop began to rediscover itself in the mid-to-late 2010s, A$AP Rocky rose as a leader who would bridge the gap between mainstream rap, old school gangsta and SoundCloud trap music. The rapper was an anomaly, bringing a fresh wave of flavor to the genre, and in the process, securing an enormous fan base that continues to grow.

On the heels of new album Testing, A$AP Rocky feels like the last of a generation of a rappers that actually has some things to say, besides “yuh,” “molly” and “esskitit.”

$39.50-$248, Fri Jan. 25, 8pm, Freeman Coliseum, 3201 E Houston St., attcenter.com.
