(Photos) A$AP Rocky Takes W Mag Behind-The-Scenes of Gucci’s Cruise Show

by @Djordje

The Gucci Cruise 2019 show certainly didn’t skimp on the dramatics. There was a fire-encased runway, a soundtrack of funeral music, and models accessorized with oversize crosses and blooming bouquets of flowers. And, of course, setting the scene for it all was the backdrop: the South of France city of Arles’s Alyscamps burial ground, which is a large Roman necropolis—or, in layman’s terms, a giant cemetery.

All in all, it would not have looked out of place on an episode of Game of Thrones. Or, according to A$AP Rocky, who attended the show in Arles, a certain other pop culture fantasy world. “It felt like I teleported to another world type shit. Each look told a different story,” said Rocky. “My favorite piece was the black leather puffer; I need that right away. Also, the cloaks were amazing. I might need one of those, too, when I’m on my Harry Potter shit.”

(Video) A$AP Rocky Breaks Down “A$AP Forever” for Genius

by @Djordje

Back in January, A$AP Rocky started teasing his upcoming album Testing with a series of sporadically released new tracks. On April 5, the Harlem rapper shared the project’s first official single “A$AP Forever.” The song is produced by frequent Rocky collaborator Hector Delgado and is built around a sample of Moby’s 2000 hit “Porcelain.” Not only has “A$AP Forever” reached No. 65 on the Billboard Hot 100, its trippy music video has over 24 million YouTube views.

A$AP Rocky’s Complex May 2018 Cover Story

by @Djordje

“Have you ever cheated on your boyfriend?”

“No.”

“Don’t lie.”

A$AP Rocky and I are in a studio in Brooklyn for a cover shoot and interview, and he’s running the show. So far, he’s asked me when I bought my white, hoof-like Martin Margiela boots, what brands my black jeans and leather jacket are, whether or not I have a boyfriend, and how long I’ve been with said boyfriend. But there’s more he’d like to know.

“So, listen. Hold on, let me check,” he says. Committed to playing the role of interviewer, he looks down at the white notecards he borrowed from me and pretends to examine his next question. “You got any kids?”

“No.”

“Oh, yeah. We gotta mark that one off.” He pretends to draw an “X” with his fingers on the notecard. “Do you want any kids?”

“Yeah. One, maybe two. Do you want kids?”

“I do,” he says.

“Boy or girl?”

“Sometimes I say girl, sometimes I say boy. It depends. I’ll take whatever.”

“How many?”

“One or two. Maybe not right now, but eventually.”

“Too soon?”

“Nah, it’s not too soon for me.”

Rocky is extremely charming—magnetic personality, a perfectly chiseled jawline that hugs a perfect smile—when he wants to be. And right now, he’s in a playful and jovial mood. “I’m having fun by the way,” he says.

It’s a stark departure from just minutes ago. Earlier in our conversation, the 29-year-old Harlem rapper was avoiding my questions, telling me to never ask a few again. At one point, when I asked what happened to the luxury fur line he once said he’d been developing, he asked if I was “working with the feds.”

“Why are you trying to get me in trouble so much, bro?” he said. “Do you have actually have a vendetta against me? Why are you asking me about fur in 2018 knowing them PETA motherfuckers are gonna come looking for me, knowing I been killing my Instagram with furs the past couple months?”

It’s hard to tell if he was bored, tired, irritated, or high off the blunts he’d been hitting. Maybe it was a combination of everything. In any event, Rocky turns the charm on and off at will, and it’s impossible to tell when each version of Rocky will emerge. He doesn’t seem to care what I think, an interesting tactic for a rapper with more to sell than ever.

(Video) A$AP Rocky and Artist Ai Weiwei on Art & Fearlessness

by @Djordje

This season, Sotheby’s has paid tribute to creative voices from the 19th century to today who have pushed boundaries and challenged the definition of art. Inspired by these bold creators, we invited artist-activist Ai Weiwei and musician, producer and entrepreneur A$AP Rocky, two very different voices, to discuss the courage needed to create truly original artwork. Through their current projects, the pair reveal complementary sources of inspiration and a unified vision of why art is central to humanity. Their shared commitment to creative expression defines what it means to be Fearless Now.
