This week, we’ve added a number of new albums to the Music Unlimited service. You can get the entire download on the Sony Entertainment Network blog, here are this week’s highlights:
As the first major release and ringleader of the A$AP Mob, A$AP Rocky is burning a path for the rest of his collective with a dynamic debut that even has the hipsters at Pitchfork singing its praises. As opposed to wading through the waters of the music industry on his own, A$AP Rocky’s collective have made him a far bigger brand than he would be by himself, with the music to back it up. While the quality of a name like Drake on “F**kin’ Problems” is a plus, is the quantity of fellow buzzworthy artists – Kendrick Lamar, Santigold, Skrillex, 2 Chainz, Schoolboy Q, etc. – is what sets this album apart as a calling card for the new class of hip-hop royalty.
