Release date: October 2011
LiveLoveA$AP is the debut mixtape by American rapper A$AP Rocky, released as a free digital download on October 31, 2011. It features production by Clams Casino, A$AP Ty Beats, DJ Burn One, and Spaceghostpurrp, among others. The mixtape also features guest rappers Schoolboy Q and Fat Tony, as well as members of A$AP Mob, Rocky's hip hop collective.
The mixtape's music incorporates stylistic and production elements of hip hop scenes distinct from Rocky's hometown New York scene, particularly Southern hip hop. Rocky's lyrics deal with themes about moral decay, including promiscuity and drug use, expressed through his boastful, varied flow. Allmusic editor Andre Barnes dubs LiveLoveA$AP "the antithesis of conscious rap" and a "guilty pleasure" for hip hop purists.
The mixtape was promoted with two singles, "Peso" and "Purple Swag", which garnered Rocky mainstream attention and led to his first record deal. Upon its release, LiveLoveA$AP received general acclaim from music critics, who praised its production aesthetic and Rocky's charismatic style. It was included in several year-end top album lists by critics and publications.
