A$AP Rocky has landed on another Complex list. Their latest feature is a countdown of The 30 Most Lyrical Rap Songs of the Past 5 Years. Coming in at #17 is Flacko’s posse-cut “1Train” featured on Long.Live.A$AP. Check out what Complex had to say here.
In 2013 rap’s dividing lines have disintegrated. Bitter battles over regionalism are a thing of the past, fans no longer have to opt for either “gangsta” or “conscious,” and the differences between underground and mainstream are ethereal at best. This is good news for Wiz Khalifa and A$AP Rocky, whose 20-date Under the Influence of Music tour kicks off July 17. Today’s rapper doesn’t have to fit somebody else’s stereotype of who he should be. The former hails from Pittsburgh, is tattooed head to toe, wears skinny jeans and hangs with Snoop. The latter reps Harlem and gold teeth, has his own clothing line, and collabs with Skrillex. Each presents a complex profile and as it turns out they have a lot in common, even if only one of them is married to model Amber Rose and has a two-month old son — ahem, Khalifa.
In honor of their forthcoming North American jaunt (also featuring Trinidad James and Joey Bada$$), SPIN sat down with Wiz and Rocky in Los Angeles to discuss their shared love of Smokey Robinson, the benefits of not doing groupies, the perks of pescetarianism, and the joy of fatherhood.

Hip-hop artist A$AP Rocky is definitely into fashion. And he wants to share some of the basics with you.
A$AP Rocky is no “Fashion Killa.” In fact, he’s more of a walking, talking, wearing fashion encyclopedia…but he’s too modest to cop to it.
“Nah, I’m not. I wouldn’t toot my own horn like that. I just know what I know,” the rapper told us. “Fashion is almost like a religion, for me at least…I get it, I identify with it. It’s just one of those things that I’m into. I can’t help that I know it. It’s like subconscious.”
We sat down with the rap genius at Soho House Toronto. Decked out in a crisp, double-breasted Saint Laurent Paris blazer, fresh off the runway, mind you, A$AP was friendly, warm and down to earth. Although we were still feeling the effects of a few too many Belvedere vodka-somethings at the party we co-hosted with him the night before, we were eager to get some one-on-one time and get to know the real man behind the flashy grillz and braids.
