First heard on DJ Nick’s The Big Payback by Chynna, it was only right to remix it. Chynna grabbed her homies A$AP Mob’s Ant and Twelvyy to lay their twists to the record, giving that New York and Baltimore flair they’re known for.

New Music: A$AP Rocky – In Distress ft. Gesaffelstein

by @Djordje

rockystein

Earlier this month, we reported that the soundtrack for the movie Divergent would be teeming with new tracks from some of our favorite artists, including Kendrick LamarChance The Rapper, and A$AP Rocky. We heard Chance’s link with Pia Mia and Clams Casino yesterday, but today we are pleased to premiere Rocky’s offering, “In Distress.” The song features French producer Gesaffelstein, who had a pretty big 2013, releasing his critically-acclaimed LPAleph and working with Kanye on Yeezus. Rocky doesn’t got full “Black Skinhead” here, but the similar undertones are in line with Rocky’s propensity for danker production.

The Divergent soundtrack is in stores March 11. The movie hits theaters March 21.

Premiere via Complex.

A$AP Ferg Interview with i-D Magazine

by @Djordje

A$AP Ferg, the self-appointed Hood Pope – a man confident enough to put out Fergivicious without fear of it sounding like a Fergie Black Eyed Peas comeback track – spent much of last year criss-crossing the States on his Turnt x Burnt tour. We first caught up with him and the rest of the A$AP Mob (an album from the whole crew is due later this year) at his biggest hometown gig yet in NYC in December where the posse’s first superstar, that pretty mofo A$AP Rocky, shouted out: “I’m so proud of my brother Ferg!” The gig showcased Ferg’s dizzying mix of voices, sounds and ideas: gruff and smooth; hard ‘90s beats and woozy present-day trap; aggressive lyrics and comforting paternal musings (“This is for all those kids who want to do something for themselves”). The overall mood was deservedly joyous – a bunch of Harlem kids who’ve made it big and are celebrating as they takeover their city and beyond. i-D caught up with Ferg backstage at the gig, then again at the Polo Grounds studios in the Bronx. Here’s what the Trap Lord had to say.

GQ Magazine x A$AP Illz: Hood to High Fashion

by @Djordje

asap-illz-hood-to-high-fashion-13

The ascent of the A$AP Mob is one of the most authentic New York stories of today. The thought that a group of friends in Harlem with similar styles and tastes could rapidly become pre-eminent tastemakers in music and fashion used to take decades, but thanks to the advent of social media platforms like Tumblr, Twitter, and Instagram—that time frame’s been reduced to mere months. The collective exudes a decidedly unique New York City energy that industry insiders and brands want to tap into, which is why it’s no surprise that DKNY tapped prominent member A$AP Rocky for its most recent campaign.

Fresh off the the release of his new visuals for See Me, A$AP Ant aka YG Addie takes on Que’s club banger OG Bobby Johnson. Get to know more about him below:

Name: YG ADDIE. LIL FACE TAT. A$AP ANT

From: Born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland

Inspired by: Inspired by my bro, pops, moms and anybody out doing what they wanna do in life and getting money by doing it.

Musical influences: A lot cause I was born in 93 so my big bro Dj Nick (@djnickmarino) put me on DJ Clue tapes, Diplomats I mean everything. Since I can remember I had Cory Guns & Lord Tariq uptown single on tape cassette. First beef song I listen to was Beanie Sigel vs Jadakiss, so I experienced a lot of the late 90s & early 00s. Went from bumping No Limit to Cash Money to Hot Boyz to Rocafella type shit, so every era from late 90s to early 00s we was bumping it. I remember being young as fuck just listening to the lyrics & actually getting what they meant, ahead of my time I guess. Prodigy from Mobb Deep also in my top three rappers of all time.
