A$AP Rocky Shakes Things Up In Sophomore Album

June 1st, 2015 4:19pm EDT
Review: A$AP Rocky Expands His Game On 'At.Long.Last.A$AP'
In 2013, A$AP Rocky burst on the scene with proper debut album LONG. LIVE. A$AP, scoring a number one album.

Although sophomore album At.Long.Last.A$AP has some similar themes, from the start, it’s obvious the MC seeks to expand as a rapper. For the most part, Rocky’s experiments and efforts work.

On opener “Holy Ghost,” one of many songs featuring Joe Fox A$AP Rocky is quick to unveil his anti-religious stat...

Martina McBride Slammed With Sexist Remarks: Her Response? 'Wow.
Never refer to Martina McBride (or any female country music star, for that matter) as a "tomato." Or assert that "if you want to make ratings in country radio, take females out."

That's what a recent issue of Country Aircheck did, and now they're paying the price: scathing criticisms from nearly every female country singer out there (and men, too).

In a rebuttal on Facebook, McBride fought back against Country Aircheck's suggestions. "Wow.....just wow. Just read this from a major country radio publication. How do you feel about this statement?"

And as for the claim that women don't liste...

"I don't think it fully has," he laughed. "I think once I have a little bit of downtime, it will."

Although his fellow final...
