ASAP Rocky Latest Act On Polo Grounds Music

After a bidding war for his services, 23-year-old Harlem emcee ASAP Rocky has signed as the latest artist on Polo Grounds Music/RCA Records.

The “Purple Swag” rapper was excited about his choice of a label home.

“I feel great about the new deal; I believe it was destined and with a label like Polo Grounds & RCA behind me I don’t see anything stopping us,” said Rocky.

“I wanted go with the right partner that can help get a bigger platform to get me and my A$AP crew’s music and movement out. I expect to be in the same league as today’s most relevant artists, and there are just some things you can’t do on your own. The plan is to not only release great music, culture, and style for myself and A$AP worldwide, but to also be the next major artist/exec in the business and make great business men out of my brothers.”

Bryan Leach, President of Polo Grounds Music agrees, saying,

“I haven’t seen an unsigned artist with this much hustle and confidence since I signed Pitbull & Lil Jon and Rocky being from Harlem (as I am) was gravy! He dares to be himself which I love and will support fully. He’s also created great alliances and built a solid unit. Winning Rocky & his team’s confidence was not easy or fast but as they are partners I will make sure everything remains in his hands.”

The Harlemite is currently prepping his debut mixtape, Live Love ASAP and will join Drake on his “Club Paradise” tour later this fall.
