Tyler Grosso Interview on No Jumper

by @Djordje

Tyler Grosso is that little emo kid in the corner at the party who gets more girls than pretty much everyone without even trying. He’s also a member of the infamous A$AP Mob and the founder of his own brand, Superrradical. He’s also probably one of the last people you would ever expected to do a podcast but I put in a few calls and made it happen. I got Tyler to tell me his entire story including some never before heard details about bootlegging Odd Future merch, being homeless, getting temporarily kicked out of A$AP and why he hates Travis Scott. All in all a great interview even though the video cut out towards the end.

A$AP Ferg Explains Why He Dedicated His adidas Sneaker to A$AP Yams

by @Djordje

co2b8538_x4w5s6_1_lbpxwe

In 2013 A$AP Rocky was given a sneaker collaboration with adidas on a pair of all-black Jeremy Scott Wings sneakers, and it was only a matter of time before his right-hand man, A$AP Ferg, got his chance to work with the brand, too.

It’s two years later and a lot has changed for the A$AP Mob since those days. They’ve lost their mentor, A$AP Yams, and it’s directly affecting Ferg’s project with adidas, as he’s chosen to dedicate the sneaker he designed to the late Yams.

The collection comes in the form of two “Hood Pope” colorways of the adi-Ease skateboarding shoe, along with a T-shirt featuring a painting of Yams that Ferg did himself.

With Art Basel taking place in Miami right now, adidas and Ferg have gone down to Florida to open an art gallery, titled “Always Strive and Prosper,” for the collection, which opens today at 9 p.m. at 337 SW 8th St.

The sneakers also released today, too, and can be purchased here for $70. To further understand how this sneaker collaboration came about and how much Yams influenced it, we spoke to Ferg himself.

Even in a year of significant upheaval and chaos, there’s a lot to appreciate. This Thanksgiving, we continued our annual tradition of asking members of the FADER family what they appreciated most this year. A$AP Ferg gave love to one of his biggest idols, Alessia Cara took time to evaluate her recent success, and Kranium kept it simple and sweet. Here’s to more success. *clinks glasses*

A$AP Ferg
I’m thankful for Jay Z, because he showed us we could be entrepreneurs—more than just young artists. He told us to own our artistry and push the culture forward.

He also explains how he’s designing his own live shows and discusses which Grime artists could crack the American market…

A$AP Rocky Interview with Noisey Australia

by @Djordje

asap3

It’s been a year of extremes for A$AP Rocky, or Pretty Flacko, the name he tells me he prefers when we are introduced. The Sundance premiere of Dope, in which the Harlem rapper made his acting debut, came just six days after the tragic loss of his friend and A$AP worldwide co-creator, A$AP Yams.

Yams’s (born Steven Rodriguez) print is all over Rocky’s latest album At.Long.Last.A$AP or A.L.L.A. He co-executive produced the album, and Rocky pays full tribute to his co-conspirator on the album cover by rocking Yams’s distinctive purple birthmark.

A.L.L.A is an impressive record. A considered chronicle of an artist transitioning from a young man filled with ambition, bravado and game to one who has truly lived and wishes to speak honestly. It also sees Rocky flex a more dexterous flow with a confidence that has him go toe-to-toe with Yeezy, Weezy, Juicy J, Future, Schoolboy Q, and, of course, Rod Stewart.

On the phone Rocky is warm, gracious and playful, constantly acknowledging and praising others. He explains that he wants to make the rawest music possible for his rawest fans and that he’s excited for next year’s Australia tour, presented by Noisey.

A$AP Rocky Interview with Time Out New York

by @Djordje

image-1

A$AP Rocky is late. Two hours late, to be exact. Then, out of nowhere, he rolls up (literally) to our cover shoot on an electronic skateboard, which he uses to travel from the door of his Escalade to the studio floor, approximately 30 feet away. “I’m just a big kid,” he shrugs, exposing a full-on golden smile—made of real gold—beneath his Céline shades. As with any kid, it’s hard to stay mad at him. But he’s not really a kid. He’s a 26-year-old Harlem-bred rapper who’s headlining the Theater at Madison Square Garden September 22 with fellow headline-making MCs Tyler, the Creator—who was recently banned from entering the U.K.—Vince Staples and Danny Brown. The event tops off a huge four years, during which Rocky’s ascended from releasing a mixtape (2011’s online freebie Live.Love.A$AP) to signing a $3 million deal with Sony, dropping two No. 1 albums and collaborating with Skrillex, Lana Del Rey, Kanye West and, most recently, Rod Stewart on At.Long.Last.A$AP. (The record’s acronym, by the way, is a reference to Allah.) During our candid chat—which is all conducted while Rocky rides his skateboard—the stylish MC touches on everything from political hip-hop to why God created weed.
