(Video) Acclaim Magazine: In The Bag with A$AP Ferg

by @Djordje

If you’ve been paying any attention to the local tour circuit, you would know that the hood pope, AKA the trap lord, AKA Fergenstein, AKA A$AP Ferg was recently in town. We know the A$AP Mob member is just as influential in the style world as he is in the music, so when we linked up with him in Sydney we made a beeline direct to Subtype Store. Once we got there we did a little shopping, chilled out, and introduced him to our friend Careaux for a quick chat about life on the road.

A$AP Rocky Interview with Vulture

A$AP Rocky is in a car on his way to Philadelphia to do a screening for the movie Dope, a coming-of-age comedy set in the ’90s about a band of hip-hop kids trying to get out of L.A. The film, which marks Rocky’s acting debut, is just one of several projects the New York rapper is juggling at the moment. His sophomore effort, At.Long.Last.A$AP, dropped last week (one week earlier than expected) and is now at No. 1 on the Billboard “200.” The album includes a staggering number of guests — from Rod Stewart and Mark Ronson, to M.I.A. and Mos Def — that reflect the 26-year-old’s wide-ranging tastes. On top of that, he’s developing a new line of high-end luxury fur coats. “I can’t help that I can multitask,” he says. During a recent call from the road, the A$AP Mob member shared more details about his eclectic taste, the title of a dubious mixtape with Rod Stewart, and why you should never publicly disrespect Lil B.

(Video) A$AP Rocky Interview with DJ Whoo Kid

by @Djordje

Promoting his recent album “At.Long.Last.A$AP”, A$AP Rocky stopped by “The Whoolywood Shuffle” with DJ Whoo Kid on Shade 45. The 30-minute interview is laced with gems; Rocky speaks on losing the ring that Swizz Beatz gifted him, PacSun pulling his “anarchist” merchandise from their shelves, being instrumental in Mos Def changing back his name from Yasiin Bey, working with Rod Stewart on “Everyday”, Rick Owen’s wife Michèle Lamy paying homage to A$AP Yams with the artwork for “A.L.L.A.”, Lil B cursing the Houston Rockets and diffusing a beef that Rocky had with another rapper, and more.

The interview ends with Rocky putting Wiz Khalifa on blast. It’s out there that Rocky turned down a weed challenge from Wiz, but he sets the record straight and how he got Wiz back by popping his mushroom cherry. Tune into “The Whoolywood Shuffle” each and every Saturday from 12p-6p EST, with a re-broadcast on Sunday’s from 10a-4p EST exclusively on Eminem’s Shade 45 (Sirius XM).

A$AP Rocky Interview with EBONY

“I hope you all enjoy this, nah’mean? If it’s one thing I can say about this album, it’s that I wanted to make music the way I wanted to, not like any of this other wack sh*t out here.” This is how Rakim Mayers, alias A$AP Rocky, recently addressed an intimate crowd of about 25-30 journalists, label reps and industry folk at his pre-release album listening event.

Of the 18 tracks that make up his second studio album, A.L.L.A (At.Long.Last.A$AP), the crowd only heard about seven or eight songs, but one could already get an impression of the trippy, psychedelic sound Rocky was experimenting with for the new project. With anticipation already building for what A.L.L.A. would bring from the banger of a single “Lord Pretty Flacko 2,” all buzz seemed to fall to the wayside with the sudden and tragic death of A$AP Mob founder A$AP Yams. How the Mob will move forward without their fallen captain remains in question, but with Rocky at the forefront, they’ve made it known that it would be business as usual, with them dedicating all that comes next (including A.L.L.A.) to their longtime friend.

A$AP Rocky Interview with The Village Voice

by @Djordje

It’s been a long afternoon, but A$AP Rocky has just gotten a second wind. The rapper is sitting in a swivel chair in a control room at Jungle City Studios in Chelsea. He’s in the middle of a nonstop press day, giving consecutive interviews to promote his new album A.L.L.A. — an acronym for “At. Long. Last. A$AP” — and despite the fact that we’ve been here for hours, the Harlem native is bright and alert…although he’s lost track of time.

“What’s today?” he asks, holding an almost-smoked joint to his chest. His hair is pulled back neatly into braids and his smile glistens from a gold bottom grill. He’s wearing all black and what appear to be red slippers — both comfy and very expensive-looking — on his feet. His amnesia is understandable; it’s been a whirlwind week. On May 26, he dropped his sophomore album a week early with a party at Milk Studios. A family affair, the event was attended by his A$AP Mob collective, relatives of his late former manager Steven “A$AP Yams” Rodriguez and his mother. “She just be chillin’. She’s happy for me. She keeps me humble,” Rocky laughs about his mom. “She kind of had something going when she named me Rakim. She was onto something!”
