In early April at The Canopy Club, New York emcee A$AP Twelvyy opened for Flatbush ZOMBiES on the 3001: A Laced Odyssey Tour. After dropping his new single “Last Year Being Broke” this past New Year’s Eve, Twelvyy is positioning himself for a big year – his new mixtape, 2127301090, is set to drop shortly, and he recently laid down a guest verse on A$AP Ferg‘s new album, Always Strive and Prosper.
After his set at Canopy, Twelvyy spoke with UPC about his new project, his first album purchase, the current state of the sneaker game and much more. Check out the conversation below.
Marino Gang’s DJ Nick and DJ Rennessy dropped off their new mixtape yesterday titled New World Order. The project features new music from A$AP Twelvyy, A$AP Ant, Marty Baller, and more. Stream below via LiveMixtapes.
Backstage at the University of Illinois’ go-to concert venue, The Canopy Club, A$AP Twelvyy is rocking his usual Cozy Boys attire: black durag, black hoodie, sweats and “Bred” Jordan Is.
Though his outfit may suit his calm, cool and collected demeanor, Twelvyy’s live show is anything but tranquil. The 26-year-old Bronx/Harlem native performs with a certain, unquantifiable tenacity that earns him rap game John Starks status in the eyes of many.
We sat down with Twelvyy post-show to discuss the Knicks, college hoops and upcoming A$AP releases. Among the man also know as 212 Mel’s early influences were Em, Cam’ron and Snoop—now, he’s looking to pave his own legacy alongside his partners: Rocky, Ferg, Nast, Ant and the rest of the Mob.
