Today’s the day. Football fans have been waiting all season to see who will make it to the big stage. Super Bowl XLVII will undoubtedly be a great match up, with the San Francisco 49ers taking on the Baltimore Ravens. You saw who Rocky picked earlier today, so we decided to take it one step further and get predictions from the rest of the mob. See who picked who below, and then leave a comment and let us know who you got.
The A$AP Mob recently hopped in the studio to work with Chuck Inglish. You’ll see the Cool Kid mixing a beat and Twelvy, Nast, and Ant all laying bars down. Brock Fetch also makes an appearance. Check out the studio session to hear what the boys cooked up.
During their visit to the states, KOG Worldwide caught up with A$AP Ant to talk Marino Gang, what he does and doesn’t like about girls and Hypebeasts, and most importantly, whats the main difference between an average b*tch and a bad b*tch. Watch part 1 above and then part 2 and the fire questions session below.
They brought the horns out for another edition of Hot 97’s “Who’s Next” series featuring Spanish Harlem’s Bodega BAMZ and who was good for a few of his own surprise guests and supporters including A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ant and Aston Matthews. Salute the #Tanboys and the lovely ladies swinging them flags.
Rocking out with a mob of your homies has it’s perks. The sheer energy of the collective on stage with you is enough to elevate your confidence and enhance your performance.There is a down side to that, though. For one, it’s hard to distinguish yourself. Your audience may not be able to make the distinction between you and one of your rhyme buddies, lumping you all together. You may have to really work at standing out amongst your counterparts.

To only be a nineteen-year-old kid, Adam Kirkman a.k.a A$AP Ant, has created a great deal of buzz in the New York underground scene for the past three years. Starting out as a co-designer for his former streetwear line. Marino, Ant had been getting coverage by Complex, Creative Control and throwing poppin’ release parties in SoHo, as a high school student. Being a teenager living in Baltimore—a place where young artists usually go unnoticed—made those feats even more impressive. Since Marino, Ant has found himself a roster spot in the hottest phenomenon in hip-hop this past year that is A$AP Rocky’s crew, A$AP Mob. His journey as a rapper is barely a year old, but in that time—with the help of Rocky’s buzz, no doubt—his “Coke And White Bitches” track, video for song “Told Ya” and newest feature with Rocky and Flatbush Zombies, “Bath Salts” have combined for more than 440,000 views on YouTube. His rhyming style is raw as he’s still figuring out what works for him, but he’s already showed separation from the fashion-conscious, more commercial-ready approach of his mob brothers; he’s developing as a gritty street artist, a tag he proudly accepts. The self-proclaimed “Beanie Siegel of A$AP” already has the respect within the emerging hip-hop underground movement, something he attributes to already having a name in New York’s scene that is now gaining international attention. Last weekend at Trillectro, Ant rocked “Bath Salts” with Flatbush Zombies, only to be later invited on stage by Schoolboy Q to perform “Coke And White Bitches”—making him the only rapper to rock multiple sets at the festival. During the event, I sat down to chat with him.
When you say “Baltimore” in front of white people, they immediately think of the Wire—which is great to torrent and watch on your computer in eight hour sessions, but would be kind of scary to actually live through. But the truth is, real life in B-more might actually be gully-er than fiction, and MCs A$AP Ant and Young Shaka have lived it. The two hip hop diplomats of that infamous city are using their music to paint a picture that shows both the dark and the beautiful sides of the town known for its high murder rates and killer blue crab cuisine.
A$AP Ant is the only member of the Harlem-based A$AP Mob who’s not actually from NYC. He and Young Shaka have been close since middle school, hustling drugs before they moved on to hustling music. We first heard from the duo back in June when they dropped their first single, “Summer Nights,” off their yet-to-be released collaborative mixtape. Now they’re back again with a music video for the summer anthem, “On Sight.” This time around Ant has stepped off the mic and put himself in the director’s chair, while Young Shaka has taken center stage as the sole MC on the track.
We got on the phone with Ant and Young Shaka to discuss their forthcoming mixtape, ghetto life in B-more, and what exaclty “on sight” means.
