Drop what you’re doing, ASAP! A$AP Rocky’s summer rap blockbuster of note has arrived! The rapper’s long-awaited new album Testing is out NOW via RCA, and it’s available through every outlet in existence.

But what’s a hip-hop event record without a cast list brimming with expensive, on-trend, and occasionally outlandish names?! As usual, Rocky’s guest docket has it all. Want that hip flavor? Have a taste of Frank Ocean and FKA Twigs. In need of some reliable voices? Try some T.I., Kid Cudi, and Skepta. Nostalgic for the classics? How about Snoop, Puff Daddy, Ms. Lauryn Hill, and, erm…Moby? Gotta imagine RCA’s accounting department is really sweating this one.

But wait, lemme throw some special icing on that enormously costly and commercially-tested rap cake by letting you know that producer extraordinaire Dean Blunt had an extremely-talented hand in the making of three tracks on the album. The man/myth/all-around-legend reportedly produced “Gunz N Butter” and “Purity” (here’s a pretty little tweet from Hyperdub to prove it!) and offered background vocals on “CALLDROPS.” That’s a whole 20% of the tracklist, my dudes!

Oh, and as if that wasn’t extravagant enough, there’s also a video (that you’ve probably already seen)! Watch “A$AP Forever,” featuring that tasty Moby sample, below. Head here to stream/purchase the whole thing, and be sure to check out the tracklisting with its cornucopia of features below, as well.

Now, consider your blocks…busted!
