The A$AP Rocky Drinking Game
6. Pour one out every time Rocky references another rapper
A$AP is a melting-pot rapper. His style is an amalgam of various cities (the Diplomat-derived cockiness of Harlem, the syrup 'n slurred flow by way of Memphis, Houston's chopped and screw scene, etc.) and his influences (Jay-Z and Three Six Mafia, among others) are clear. Rocky is a good listener and uses his taste to curate how he projects his own rap image. He even gives a shout-out to a few influences on this album, such as Andre Ice 3000. If you're feeling especially bold, pour one out for SpaceGhostPurrp who used to be tight with Rocky before the two rappers' entourages got into a fight. SpaceGhostPurrp is sadly missing from this release.
Key Tracks: "Goldie" (Raekwon's Cuban Linx referenced), Andre Ice 300 on "Wild For The Night" and "Ghetto Symphony." Ol' Dirty Bastard referenced on "LongLiveA$AP, Busta Rhymes, Eazy E and Diddy hat-tipped on "Suddenly."
7. The last person to make the Wu-Tang Clan "W" with his hands when Rocky says "Shimmy Shimmy Yeah" must take a drink.
As explained in the previous rule, Rocky gives shout-outs to his influences and favorite rappers. He often gives ODB of the Wu-Tang Clan a head-nod by shouting "Shimmy Shimmy Yeah" in several songs. If you can't Wu, you best drink.
Key Tracks: "LongLiveA$AP," "Fuckin' Problems."
8.Each time Rocky says a word twice in a row, take two drinks.
Rocky often uses the tactic of repeating words for effect. He says "gets gets" "bothered bothered" and other words twice, often as a segue into his double-time flow. When this device occurs, you can't just take one sip-- make it a pair.
Key Tracks: "Pain," "Suddenly," many others.
