The latest December/January issue of XXL Magazine with 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather on the cover has a special feature on ASAP Rocky under their Show & Prove section. Take a look at the excerpt below and be sure to pick up your own copy at news stands today.
SPG released a very rare commercial for his upcoming mixtape God of Blvck. He also revealed on Twitter that there is a collaboration with super-producer Lex Luger. Look for the full project to be dropping soon.
You never know when opportunity can come calling. In the midst of an interview with BET.com Bad Boy Record’s new rising star Machine Gun Kelly accepted a call from fellow rap newcomer ASAP Rocky that would lay the groundwork for a potential collaboration. The two upstarts confessed a mutual admiration for one another and made plans to hit the studio together in the near future to record new material.
“I want to work with ASAP Rocky A.S.A.P.,” says a fired up MGK after a four-minute conversation with the Harlem rapper. “I see how he’s been moving in the industry and how he moves as a person with his crew. He sounds like a thorough motherf—–.”
Though that was the first time MGK had ever spoken to ASAP, he has long been a fan of the Harlemite’s unorthodox style. It’s hardly surprising that the brash Cleveland rhyme slinger would be drawn to the carefree shock rap aesthetic ASAP Rocky offers. The two rappers, who share similar cult-like followings—MGK’s Lace Up nation and Rocky’s ASAP crew—will likely create something to the liking of their young hipster heavy fan bases.
After exchanging info MGK and ASAP went over some future show dates which could provide a potential rendezvous point for their studio hook up. As for as this MGK is concerned the time and place are just formalities in a must see music event.
“Two real motherf—-, two wild motherf—–,” MGK boasts. “It’s a problem. Not as far as when you hear the record, but when you see both of us perform it live. Get back b—-!”
“I got a song with ASAP Rocky. It’s actually his song,” Schoolboy Q explained. “He’s supposed to leak it sometime soon…It’s crazy. It’s real gangster though. But it’s gangster swag shit though, it’s dope. Shout out to Rocky.”
The Harlem newcomer everyone is talking about is ready to make his way to the majors. Today, it was announced that A$AP Rocky had official signed a label deal at Polo Grounds Music/RCA Records, a division of Sony Music Entertainment.
“I feel great about the new deal; I believe it was destined and with a label like Polo Grounds & RCA behind me I don’t see anything stopping us,” said Rocky. “I wanted go with the right partner that can help get a bigger platform to get me and my A$AP crew’s music and movement out.”
Rocky added, “I expect to be in the same league as today’s most relevant artists, and there are just some things you can’t do on your own. The plan is to not only release great music, culture, and style for myself and A$AP worldwide, but to also be the next major artist/exec in the business and make great business men out of my brothers.”
The 23-year-old rapper spoke with The New York Times this week where he gave incite on his personal style, his fashion, and sipping lean, as talked about in his viral smash, “Purple Swag.” A$AP will join Drake on his “Club Paradise Tour” along with Kendrick Lamar this November.
