Press Play

 New Orleans-by-way-of-San Francisco producer Jim-E Stack (pictured above) passed along this syrupy bootleg of ASAP Rocky‘s recent Southern-styled homage to all things purple (and intoxicating), appropriately titled “Purple Swag.” From the onset, we step into much more futuristic territory than the original, thanks to a handful of slippery chords and club-appropriate drums of the modern garage/2-step ilk. Deftly burying the Harlem rapper’s words below his own slow-motion futurism, Stack weaves in and out of a verse and two choruses before ostensibly leaving ASAP Rocky behind, and breaking us off with almost a minute of gloriously sleek garage before the track is out. While waiting for Jim-E Stack’s debut EP to drop via the Good Yearsimprint, this bootleg and his “Lemme” tune will have to whet our bass-hungry appetites.
