Frank Ocean lands gracefully on Testing before the curtains get raised. A$AP Rocky’s willingness to separate from the pastiches of current day hip hop is highly commendable. “Purity” on a gentler slope, caps a ride through busy weather. While Rocky has been all kinds of busy in the lead up to this effort, it’s slightly ironic that we’ve chosen to highlight the last cut on the record, but not for nothing. Frank Ocean’s rarefied presence proves that quality doesn’t breed out of nothing. If A$AP Rocky had but one strength, it’s his ear for curation. Before his rap skills were as polished as they are now, the production value stood firm, and his recruitment process, as always helps him to create a universalized maxim of ideas.
