Rapper A$AP Rocky has made a mixtape of DIY beats for other rappers to sample/rap over, so that’s considerate of him.

Talking to MTV a while back, he billed it as “classical beautiful music and boom bap Wu-Tang shit mixed together… slowed down and real vibey, with no lyrics”. He also confirmed that he’ll give the mixtape away free via the net, saying: “I’m not looking to put it out, I’m just gonna drop it online and I’mma have visuals to it. It’s gonna be like a real album, but it’s gonna be free”.

Real, free, visuals, all great things. And a great title: ‘Beauty And The Beast: Slowed Down Sessions (Chapter 1)’. Catchy.
