Prior to their portrayal as The Kennedys, A$AP Rocky and Lana Del Rey were united by production crew, The KickDrums. The song, “Ridin,” was originally set to appear on The KickDrum’s mixtape, Follow The Leaders, but was snatched at the last minute by Rocky. He wanted the song for his debut album, LongLiveA$AP, which he says will ‘solidify and justify’ everything that he stands for as an artist.
Last month, the production duo leaked the record prematurely and pissed Rocky off. He tells Jenny Boom Boom of Hot 93.7 that he was freestyling on that track just as a reference, and he’d never release that to listeners. The entire ordeal has turned the Harlemite off, and the song will not be featured on his album.
