A$AP Rocky + OG Ron C – Live Love Purple (Chopped Not Slopped) | Stream x Free Download

Although he reps Harlem, A$AP Rocky has never hidden his appreciation for the musical culture of Houston. For his latest release, young Rakim recruited one of H-Town’s favorite sons, OG Ron C, to give his Live Love A$AP project a good ol’ Texas choppin’.

For the uninitiated, when an album or mixtape is “chopped” — also known as “chopped and screwed” or “throwed and slowed” — its tracks are slowed down and treated with techniques like record scratching or beat skipping to make them seem like they’ve been cut up (or “chopped”) and rebuilt. This technique originated in Houston and was popularized the late DJ Screw and his Screwed Up Click (S.U.C.) and by Swishahouse, founded by Michael “5000” Watts and OG Ron C himself.

The chopped not slopped version of Rocky’s Live Love A$AP — dubbed Live Love Purple as a nod to the purple-colored syrup beverage that inspired the chopped and screwed phenomenon — contains all the tracks from the official version plus a few freestyles from A$AP Rocky and other members of the A$AP Mob.
