When A$AP Rocky’s breakout mixtape hits streaming services on Friday, there will be a few notable changes to the project.
It’s always great to hear that a classic project from the mixtape era is getting added to streaming services, and this week, A$AP Rocky fans were the latest to be able to rejoice. The Harlem rapper’s acclaimed mixtape Live.Love.A$AP is getting the re-release treatment on Friday, days before it celebrates its 10-year anniversary.
However, as we’ve already seen with fan-favorite projects like Chance the Rapper’s Acid Rap or Mac Miller’s newly re-released Faces, there will be a few considerable changes to A$AP Rocky’s groundbreaking debut mixtape when it hits DSPs on Friday.

According to Rolling Stone, the streamable version of Live.Love.A$AP will mostly remain true to its original release, but the mixtape’s “Out Of This World” outro as well as the A$AP Ferg-assisted cut “Kissin’ Pink” have unfortunately been dropped from the final tracklist. Furthermore, it appears that the iconic black-and-white cover has been colorized for its re-release, a creative decision that many fans will likely feel some way about as well.
Despite all of those changes, fans will at least be treated with a brand new song for their troubles. “Sandman,” a previously untitled track that features production from Kelvin Krash and Live.Love.A$AP alum Clams Casino, was teased earlier this year during the virtual Yams Day broadcast, and now, it will serve as the mixtape’s new outro. Check out the updated tracklist below.
