A$AP Rocky 2012

WATCH: A$AP Rocky Performs New Song in San Francisco

There are honestly few things we here at UTG enjoy more than A$AP Rocky‘s outgoing and explosive personality but his new song has our full attention.

A video has surfaced of A$AP Rocky performing his new unreleased joint called “Thuggin Noise” in San Francisco on April 20. The bass hits too hard, drowning out some of the lyrics, but you hear a majority of the song for the most part. This song has instant classic written all over it and we cannot wait until a studio version is released.

Thug out with Rocky and the Mob after the jump …
