A$AP Rocky Explains Thought Process Behind Posse Cut "1 Train"

A$AP Rocky explains why he put Action Bronson, Danny Brown, Joey Bada$$, Big K.R.I.T., Kendrick Lamar and Yelawolf on his posse cut.

A$AP Rocky corraled an impressive group of emcees for his Hit-Boy-produced cut "1 Train," included on his upcoming debut album LongLiveA$AP.

During an interview with Fuse, the Harlem, New York rapper explained why he enlisted Danny Brown, Kendrick Lamar, Yelawolf, Action Bronson, Joey Bada$$ and Big K.R.I.T. for the posse cut, stating that he came up with on his own.

"That was one of the things that I absolutely came up with by myself," he said. "No [A$AP] Yams this time, no nothing. I heard the beat from Hit-Boy and said yo, I need Danny Brown on here, I need Kendrick... I just wanted to mess with a lot of the underground cats and a lot of people that didn't really get the recognition that they deserve who I thought were talented emcees. I just basically made a posse cut featuring my favorite underground emcees of my day, the cats that I came up with. I came up in the era of Bronson and Danny and Kendrick and Yelawolf and K.R.I.T. [They] were right before me. But I can relate to it and I'm friends with all of those guys so it was cool to make that happen."
