On August 3rd, I attended A$AP Twevlyy’s 12 album release party at Brooklyn’s Baby’s All Right. New York’s high and almighty hipster scene was in the building for the highly anticipated launch including everyone from Flatbush Zombies, to Kendall Jenner and Justine Skye, to Marty Baller. Opening performances included the aforementioned Flatbush Zombies and A$AP Mob affiliate YG Addie. Finally, the man of the hour touched the stage, A$AP Twelvyy, who performed most of the project’s entirety. At the end of his performance (or not so much the end), he surprised eventgoers with an extended play, calling A$AP Rocky to the stage.
The performances were just as electrifying as the music that painted each. Overall, I would give A$AP Twelvyy’s solo debut, 12, a two thumbs up. The project welcomes that traditional New York sound that hip-hop aficionados yearn for, mixing meaty yet melodic monologues like “L.Y.B.B.” with uninhibited club bangers like the A$AP Ferg-assisted “Hop Out.” The 14-track project is sure to treat you to a fave or few. Be sure to cop the project on your favorite streaming platform.
Peep the flicks.
