The single, via A$AP Worldwide/Polo Grounds Music/RCA Records, shows the rapper/singer/songwriter/record producer reflecting on his losses.

Initially, the song was unveiled during his live show at the Amazon Music Live concert in L.A. a month ago.

You can see the video below.

Here is how he introduces the song –

“Rest in peace, to everybody we lost in Hip-Hop throughout the years. You gotta know that we’re the highest statistic of losing people. No other genres loses rockstars, pop singers, and country artists. Hip-hoppers, we get killed and shot everyday. Overdoses and all sorts of unfortunate events, so this next song is dedicated to everybody we lost or anybody who ever lost somebody.”

As you can see, the tempo is significantly slowed down compared to his usual songs.

The 34-year-old rapper’s last album, “Testing”, was dropped in 2018.

Reportedly, his upcoming album is now complete and ready to go.

Speaking with Apple Music, Rocky reveals that he is feeling a ‘sense of guilt’.

Therefore, this song expresses how these hip-hop losses are affecting him.

“Without preaching too much, I just wanted to touch on something a bit different opposed to just being braggadocios, flamboyant and just regular rap content for me. I just kind of wanted to express myself and tell how I felt without preaching. And I think we can all relate. We all got the same problems. The irony that my biggest hit to date was … My first hit was ‘F*ckin’ Problems’. And now 10 years later exactly, I’m putting out a song named ‘Same Problems’. It’s just like problems, problems, you know what I mean?” – A$AP Rocky

How are we feeling about this one?

Personally, I think it is absolutely incredible and gives us a lot to think about.

I can’t wait to see what else he has for us on his highly anticipated upcoming album.
