Quick: list off seven of the hottest new emcees to emerge in the last few years. If you’re anywhere near my wavelength, your list will look a lot like the lineup of A$AP Rocky‘s latest single. Following the tremendously successful F**kin’ Problems (and Rocky’s recent guest turn on T.I.‘s Wildside), 1Train is a posse cut worthy of representing 2012 in a hip-hop time capsule. Here, Hit-Boy‘s sampled strings back high-energy verses from A$AP, Kendrick Lamar, Joey BADA$$, Yelawolf, Danny Brown, Action Bronson and Big K.R.I.T. Who spit the standout verse? As always, DJBooth readers get to lay down the final verdict. Whoever you think came out on top, you’ll want to keep your browsers locked for more bangers leading up to the Janaury 15, release of Rocky’s RCA Records debut album, LONG.LIVE.A$AP.
1Train is not currently available for stream, but the song can be purchased using the “$ Buy Song” button above.
