A$AP Rocky Makes 1 Of His Best “Testing” Songs Into An Experimental Video
Ever since A$AP Rocky records first hit the streets, he’s usually had proper visuals to accompany the best of them. Even in the early days with “Peso” and “Purple Swag,” the Harlem, New York MC/producer has been “a pretty M.Fer” with polished visuals to match. On that note, Lord Flacko is continuing his almost decade-long Rap career with more eye candy as he just dropped his video for “Tony Tone,” a song from his 2018-released third solo LP, Testing.
Directed by Hidji Films and featuring cameo appearances from A$AP TyY, A$AP Twelvyy, A$AP Illz, and Smooky MarGielaa, Rocky’s latest vid reveals him riding through the streets of New York on a bike, something not too uncommon for one of his videos. It also shows him in some pretty bizarre scenes, including him presiding over an expecting woman in a bathtub, and in a tilted room with three women watching a snowed-out television.
A$AP Rocky released Testing on May 25 with “Tony Tone” being not one of the LP’s two initial singles (“A$AP Forever” and “Praise the Lord (Da Shine)”). Previously, Ambrosia For Heads highlighted the “Man Inside”-sampled track when Testing was released. The inspiration behind Rocky’s third album was that he’s “testing new sounds,” hence the title.
Since the project’s drop, A$AP has released the much talked about visual for “Praise The Lord (Da Shine),” which features both Rocky and Skepta in their native lands Harlem and London respectfully and is a nod to DMX’s “Who We Be” by way of their rapping style and video’s editing technique.
“Tony Tone” is currently included on AFH‘s official playlist.
