A$AP Rocky Interview with Esquire

ASAP-Rocky-What-Ive-Learned-43

The only thing that’s exquisite about my taste is my fashion sense. Other than that I’m a piece of shit.

I don’t get enough time to watch porn but I have orgies, like, every other night. It usually goes down with chicks in my room and once they’re done with me they want to go and get with some of my mates. Are they in my room, too? No. That would be strange. OK, I did say orgies. I should have said threesomes or foursomes but they do give my friends some so how do you include that? How do I manifest that into the combo? The most I’ve managed is five girls and me. A sixsome!

Expect the worst but pray for the best.

I sold drugs I’m not proud of when I was 15. As I got older, I was known for selling marijuana. I don’t recommend heroin, crack, meth, Xanax, OxyContin or opium. Did I ever try crack? Hell no! Crack is like something out of The Lord of the Rings. Once you fuck with the Ring, it sticks with you.

A$AP P On The Boards Interview with Viper Magazine

by @Djordje

38-1200x520

Firstly, briefly introduce yourself.
My name is A$AP P on the Boards. I was born in New York but have been back and forth between the city and Miami almost forever. As far as my style goes, it’s however I’m feeling at that moment – I wish I had a single word for it but there could be days I’m dark, happy, or just based and I’m letting my mind pour the thoughts out into the Universe.

(Video) A$AP Rocky Interview with Capital XTRA at Wireless Fest

by @Djordje

A$AP Rocky is moving across the pond and settling down in London.

The ‘Long. Live. A$AP’ rapper exclusively revealed to Capital XTRA that he’s bought a property in one of London’s most expensive areas, Mayfair.

Tim Westwood caught up with A$AP backstage at Wireless Festival today (3rd July) and asked A$AP where he would be living once he made the move.

“If I tell you you gon’ slap me,” Rocky laughed, eventually revealing that Mayfair will be his new home.

“That’s the most poshest [part of London]…” He said. “But they don’t know who I am over there, they don’t care about me that’s why I love it.”

A$AP performed on the main stage tonight ahead of Drake, who brought out Skepta as a surprise guest and ‘Shutdown’ Finsbury Park.

A$AP Rocky Interview with The Guardian

by @Djordje

A$AP Rocky … 'I'be been living like a black rock star'

When I meet A$AP Rocky at a restaurant in midtown Manhattan– the kind where veal tomahawk chops go for $50 a pop – he’s trying to figure out the day’s itinerary. How to, in the next six hours, cram in a performance on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show, a shopping spree at Dior Homme and the New York premiere for the film he’s making his acting debut in – Rick Famuyiwa’s coming-of-age comedy, Dope. “I’ve been living like a black rock star,” he says, “I slept for an hour today – an hour and a half? – but I need more.”

That schedule also goes some way to understanding how the rapper – real name Rakim Mayers – has morphed, in fewer than five years, from the self-proclaimed “pretty motherfucker” from across 110th Street to the cocky figurehead of the A$AP Mob – the Harlem crew that revived New York hip-hop. But there are multiple sides to Rocky. Is he, as he raps, the Fashion Killa more interested in hanging out with designers Raf Simons and Rick Owens than making music? Or the lothario who, as his lyrics put it, has had too many Fuckin’ Problems? On one level, he might be considered the typically brash young rapper who sports pavé diamonds in his teeth, has a downtown penthouse in New York and a Hollywood pad, and chases Roger Sterling-esque mind expansion via psychedelic drugs. On the other, he says, he’s the humble, studious creative, would-be director and movie star. Rocky knows that some of the preconceptions about him are down to his entrance into the world of rap in 2011, which wasn’t exactly subtle. “Coming in I was so braggodocious: gold, bitches, all that other shit. Not a lot has changed,” he says. “I’m just a little more humble. I’m here to stand out, I’m not here to shit on people no more.”

A$AP Ferg Reveals His New Denim Collaboration With L.A. Brand AGOLDE

by @Djordje

DSC_8295_b45lmc

A$AP Ferg is not like other rappers trying make their way in the fashion industry. Despite a successful music career, Ferg actually started off designing clothes. He graduated from art school; launched his own label, Devoni, which Chris Brown and Swizz Beatz are fans of; and has collaborated with brands like Young & Reckless and PacSun. Now, he’s entering the very tough denim industry with a collaboration with L.A. brand AGOLDE—the same project he’s been teasing on Instagram this past week.

The Trap Lord personally worked at AGOLDE’s factory during the production of the collection, learning the ins and outs of the denim industry while simultaneously contributing creatively to the range. The collection is inspired by his favorite pair of jeans, which he’s worn on tour, at fashion shows, and while riding BMX bikes. “I basically want to give the world a piece of me,” he says. The collection also includes T-shirts, a hoodie, and denim jackets—but it’s the jeans, he says, that he’s especially proud of.

We recently caught up with Ferg to talk to get the exclusive on his new denim collaboration, being inspired by Ralph Lauren, plus how the “Dope Walk” video with Cara Delevingne came about.

Ferg’s collaboration with AGOLDE launches Spring 2016.

A$AP Rocky Interview with The Daily Beast

by @Djordje

asap_rocky_edit_3318422b

A$AP Rocky is very high. We’re talking Jim Breuer in Half Baked. Brad Pitt in True Romance. Chris Tucker in Friday. Keanu Reeves in life.

He’s holed up in his hotel room in London. When I connect with him by phone, I say, “Hello?” All I hear on the other end is breathing, then a deep drag, followed by a glorious exhale. This lasts for about ten seconds. Finally, a hazy-sounding A$AP reveals himself.

What’s up, man? How you doin’?

It’s the second week of June, prior to tragic events of Charleston, and the 26-year-old rapper is flying high. His sophomore studio album, At.Long.Last.A$AP, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts, and Dope, which marks his feature acting debut, has been lauded by critics and audiences alike. Right now, A$AP Rocky doesn’t have a care in the world—except, that is, what he’s going to eat for supper.

“For the most part, the food is pretty shitty here,” he says of London. “But whatever.”

This food quandary is partially my fault. I mentioned my time studying in London close to a decade ago, and how difficult it was—as a New Yorker, especially—to find a nice, cheap lunch in a city sorely lacking in delis, bagels, tacos, and pizza. But this generalization was qualified to Mr. Rocky by admitting that the food situation across the pond had improved dramatically in the years since.

A$AP Rocky Talks ‘DOPE’ Role with i-D Magazine

by @Djordje

untitled-article-1435140723

Like Tupac, Ice Cube, Ice T, and many more rap stars before him, A$AP Rocky has turned his hand to acting and made his silver screen debut in the 90s hip hop comedy Dope. Rocky plays Dom, a drug dealer in a fictional Inglewood neighborhood named “The Bottoms.” To avoid arrest, Dom unloads a backpack filled with the titular dope on the film’s nerdy protagonist, Malcolm. But when he wants the goods returned, Dom becomes a man on a mission. i-D caught up with the rapper at Cannes and found out about how he fell into the role, how much love he’s got for P Diddy and how he doesn’t give a fuck about skin color.
