It seems you can't open your window these days without seeing a new project from the A$AP Mob, and for as definitively Uptown as their live tours and television appearances are, their music videos remain sleek, stylish and cutting edge. This tradition continues in their new video for A$AP Twelvy and Zack's "Coziest."
Coming off of A$AP Mob's delightfully titled Cozy Tapes 2: Too Cozy, the video draws much of its aesthetic from an '80s-style animation. Somewhere in the plasma between early animé - back when your local Blockbuster Video referred to it as the mildly-problematic "Japanimation" - and adult-oriented hand-drawn endeavors like cult classic Heavy Metal, the cool imagery is enhanced by the VHS static, presenting an underground adult cartoon in the unsettling way it should be seen.
Fans of A$AP Mob also have the new A$AP Rocky album to look forward to, even if they don't know the title yet. Announced this week and set to feature DRAM, the new Rocky project is reportedly completed and due this year. But being kept in the dark hasn't stopped fans of the Mob to check in with each other and attempt to guess the title.
