(Video) A$AP Twelvyy Breaks Down “Strapped” for Genius

by @Djordje

Earlier this month, A$AP Mob member A$AP Twelvyy dropped his debut album 12. The lead single off the project is “Strapped,” a track that pays homage to Twelvyy’s humble beginnings on the streets of New York. The A$AP P on the Boards-produced song samples Sampha’s 2013 track “Beneath the Tree” on the chorus. As the Bronx rapper explains to Genius, “Strapped” is about survival of the fittest.

“I didn’t see us being where we are today. I didn’t see us being A$AP Twelvyy, A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ferg, A$AP Mob,” he said. “On our come up, you gotta go through the trials and tribulations to be able to survive, you know? It’s about the survival of the fittest at the end of the day.”

A$AP Twelvyy recently sat down with Genius for the latest episode of Verified and broke down his new track.
