Back in January, we got our hands on a Virtual Reality Oculus Rift and the first thing we did with it was start watching porn. (Duh!) We got our staffers to watch some VR porn, filmed their reactions, and made this awesome video. But weren’t done yet! In February, we got the bright idea of doing the same thing with elderly people. Turns out, they weren’t all that impressed by the way future generations will probably spend their time pleasuring themselves, but the results were still pretty damn funny.
Since this is Complex, the only logical next step for us was to get some rappers and singers to watch VR porn for the first time. So we hollered at A$AP Ferg, Action Bronson, Fetty Wap,The-Dream, Jean Grae, and (just for shits and giggles) Big Body Bes to see how they’d react to watching some VR porn. Check out the results above.
NYFW is a magnet for artists of all types who see clothing as a way to express their creativity. Artists, social stars, singers, actors all rub elbows with editors and buyers as they check out the latest get-ups from our favorite designers. This week I made friends with rapper A$ap Ferg, who caught my attention with face-paint tattoos and warmth. I chatted with Ferg about his impressions of fashion week.
When fashion titans Timberland and VILLA collaborate, the streets take notice. With their past three collaborations already cemented as cult classics, the pair teamed up yet again to release their most eye-catching pair to date: the VILLA x Timberland Emerald 6” Boot. Originally debuted in February, the Emerald boot sold out instantly in all of VILLA’s 100+ locations.
One of the first people to embrace the Emerald Timberland was Harlem’s sartorial sultan, A$AP Ferg. Completely enamored by their killer kelly hue, Ferg was instantly inspired to redesign his signature Trap Lord gear to pair up nicely with Timberland and VILLA’s creation. After Ferg gave his emerald-tinted blessings, VILLA was able to find a few more pairs of the Emerald 6” boot, right in time for St. Patrick’s Day.
If you missed out on the initial release, then this could be your last chance to cop one of the most coveted kicks of the year. Throw in the jewels that A$AP Ferg has dropped, and there’s no better to way to shine for the Emerald Isle. This extremely limited re-release and exclusive Trap Lord gear will only be available through the Virgin Mega app on 3/12 Noon EST. Download the Virgin Mega app (iOS/Android) to get in line to buy this product.
The Emerald Essentials Collection consists of the VILLA x Timberland Emerald 6” Boot ($190), the Trap Lord x VILLA Snapback ($35), and the Trap Lord x VILLA Long Sleeve Tee ($45).
The very first time we met ASAP Ferg, he was touring with the ASAP Mob—the Harlem-based hip hop collective that boasts a long list of talented producers and rappers (and yes, that includes ASAP Rocky). It was a little hectic as ANDPOP’s SImon Mohos interviewed the group as they were surrounded by their fans in a crammed Toronto clothing boutique. It was only yet another day in the life of a talented rapper.
Simon’s next encounter with ASAP Ferg was a little calmer. While tour with Compton, Calif. rapper YG, the former fashion designer and all-around businessman chatted with our host on a comfy couch backstage when he rolled into Toronto earlier this year. They talked about ASAP Ferg’s friendship with model-actress Cara Delevingne (like many modern friendships, it, too, started online), designing his own sparkly grillz and what he’s been eating these days (he’s no longer a Pescetarianism). ASAP Ferg also delivers his best Batman impression as he and Simon do a dramatic reading of a scene straight from The Dark Knight. How did he do? Hit play to find out!
The dope lord never fails to keep things fresh. Days after Ferg Forever dropped on Black Friday, A$AP Ferg and Cara Delevingne exchanged videos on who had the better dope walk. Today, Ferg uploads his response as the music video for “Dope Walk.” In this fun, creative visual, A$AP Ferg gets on a FaceTime call with Delevingne and shows everyone on Ferg’s side moving their feet. Footage from Ferg’s fashion week bring out HAIM, A$AP Rocky, and Kanye West. Everyone is in this. See if you can spot all the cameos.
