Now, his name is being celebrated for his work on his major label debut, Long.Live.A$AP.
In a recent interview, he told MTV News, "This album is more advanced; it's like [I] graduated," while comparing it to his mixtape.

Live.Love.A$AP [is life] before the record deal and Long.Live.A$AP is after the deal."
