As part of their annual Year In Review, Tumblr has announced some of the top blogs and posts featured on their site in 2014. Included in the many lists was A$AP Rocky, honored with having one of the sites Most Reblogged Songs (“Fashion Killa”) and being a 2014 Musician To Watch.
Places+Faces recently dropped their third episode, featuring behind-the-scenes footage of the Mob in London for Red Bull’s Culture Clash. Check it out above.
Take some advice from the most surreal panel of style allstars ever assembled, Candy Pratts Price, A$AP Nast, Danielle Greco, and A$AP Bari, on the premiere episode of #STYLEBYFIRE. In episode 1, the group tackles the most quizzical moments in fashion this year, from baby Timbs to Tony Bennett to Shia LeBoeuf The Legend.

A$AP Illz has high hopes. “I want to be somebody that people are gonna know,” he told FADER, “not just for one thing or two things, but for an expanse of things—for being a talented person.” We invited the Bronx-born 24-year-old, who caught a big wave of public attention this year with a DKNY casting, up to the office to talk about fashion, but what we got was more like a glimpse into his life. We spoke about his mom’s passing and the jewelry line he’s building in tribute, about how his sister’s mac and cheese is his favorite food in the world, and about the way he wakes up each morning: wanting to be remembered. Below, he shows us what that life looks like.

Fergenstein’s back. As promised, A$AP Ferg delivered his new Gangsta Grillz-hosted mixtape Ferg Forever on the day after Thanksgiving. The 19-track project includes features from artists like YG and Big Sean with production from the likes of Mike Will Made It and Big K.R.I.T. But Ferg decided to showcase some new talent as well.
There’s Harlem-bred rapper and producer Crystal Caines, who’s been working with Ferg for years. She produced the Trap Lord cut “Lord,” helped him lay down vocals for “Work” and “Shabba” and on this project she’s rapping her a$$ off on the songs “Reloaded (Let it Go pt. 2)”, and “Weave.”
NYC-based producer and songwriter, Stelios Phili, met Ferg while working at GQ and on this project he produced multiple standout tracks including the insanely catch “Ja-Rule,” “Dope Walk” and the single “Doe-Active.”
Crystal Caines and Stelios Phili broke down some of the tape’s highlights for MTV News.

Scott is a man of many talents. A true multitasker, his résumé is impressive: He is the brains (along with a handful of others) behind the hilarious website IMNOTATOY [http://imnotatoy.com/], which has a loyal cult following; was an integral part of the wildly popular Ballers Eve radio show [http://www.ballerseveplaya.com/] that helped break many underground artists; serves as the in-house deejay for the A$AP Mob; and manages and does A&R for vocalist, artist, and model Kilo Kish [http://kilokish.com/]. Originally from the College Park neighborhood of Atlanta, Scott now resides in New York City when he is not traveling the world working on different projects. He keeps an open mind and focuses on innovation—bringing an original perspective to all of his endeavors. His positive attitude and high energy are infectious and encourage creativity. Not overly concerned with credit or money, Scott focuses on pushing things forward and being a team player. Pay attention—he is definitely one to watch.
While in London competing in Red Bull’s Culture Clash with the rest of the mob, A$AP Rocky decided to debut his unreleased cut “Pretty Flacko 2″ produced by Nez & Rio. You may recognize the track from his “Multiply” music video as it was featured during the interlude. Check it out above and stay tuned for more new music as #FlackoJodyeSeason has only just begun.
