In 2013 rap’s dividing lines have disintegrated. Bitter battles over regionalism are a thing of the past, fans no longer have to opt for either “gangsta” or “conscious,” and the differences between underground and mainstream are ethereal at best. This is good news for Wiz Khalifa and A$AP Rocky, whose 20-date Under the Influence of Music tour kicks off July 17. Today’s rapper doesn’t have to fit somebody else’s stereotype of who he should be. The former hails from Pittsburgh, is tattooed head to toe, wears skinny jeans and hangs with Snoop. The latter reps Harlem and gold teeth, has his own clothing line, and collabs with Skrillex. Each presents a complex profile and as it turns out they have a lot in common, even if only one of them is married to model Amber Rose and has a two-month old son — ahem, Khalifa.
In honor of their forthcoming North American jaunt (also featuring Trinidad James and Joey Bada$$), SPIN sat down with Wiz and Rocky in Los Angeles to discuss their shared love of Smokey Robinson, the benefits of not doing groupies, the perks of pescetarianism, and the joy of fatherhood.

A$AP Rocky is no “Fashion Killa.” In fact, he’s more of a walking, talking, wearing fashion encyclopedia…but he’s too modest to cop to it.
“Nah, I’m not. I wouldn’t toot my own horn like that. I just know what I know,” the rapper told us. “Fashion is almost like a religion, for me at least…I get it, I identify with it. It’s just one of those things that I’m into. I can’t help that I know it. It’s like subconscious.”
We sat down with the rap genius at Soho House Toronto. Decked out in a crisp, double-breasted Saint Laurent Paris blazer, fresh off the runway, mind you, A$AP was friendly, warm and down to earth. Although we were still feeling the effects of a few too many Belvedere vodka-somethings at the party we co-hosted with him the night before, we were eager to get some one-on-one time and get to know the real man behind the flashy grillz and braids.

The ratchet homies A$AP Rocky and Nessa sit down and talk about his upcoming instrumental album he produced, hitting the strip club with Rihanna, getting boo’d up with Chanel Iman, who from A$AP Mob gets on his nerves, his favorite music videos, working with Danger Mouse and his dream collab with Andre 3000.
We met A$AP at the Soho House in Toronto, speech slow and heads aching from a few too many Belvedere vodka-somethings at the A$AP x Cov jam the night before. But the hangover was no match for A$AP’s savoir-faire—he totally schooled us with his encyclopedic fashion knowledge (not-so-subtle hint: maybe there’s a closet feature coming up A$AP in our iCal?). We sat down with him in a Kindergarten, show-and-tell-like circle and learned the A to Z’s on fashion – literally. He gave us the golden-grilled goods on witch hazel, purple lipstick and his philosophy on women’s beauty (and er, the facts of life?). Break out that Moleskine, ladies, because this worth taking notes..
