It’s been an up-and-down couple of weeks for A$AP Rocky. On Saturday, the 26-year-old rapper attended the world premiere of his new film, “Dope,” a hip-hop-driven comedy in which he plays a drug dealer named Dom. (Also featured are Keith Stanfield, Zoë Kravitz and Rocky’s ex-girlfriend, the model Chanel Iman.) The movie — Rocky’s first — has been a Sundance hit, drawing rave reviews and becoming an early favorite to win the festival’s audience award. But Rocky, né Rakim Mayers, was in little mood to celebrate. Just six days earlier, on Jan. 18, his close friend and collaborator Steven “A$AP Yams” Rodriguez died suddenly of still-undisclosed causes. On Sunday morning, Rocky would have to fly to New York City for the funeral.
When T spoke with Rocky at the “Dope” after-party, the loss was weighing heavily on his mind. “I miss him,” he said of the A$AP Mob co-founder. “Yams was my Yoda. He’s my brother. He left too soon, but I cherished every moment that I knew him.” When the conversation shifted to the film, however, his mood brightened considerably. Citing the 1992 drama “Juice,” starring the late rapper Tupac Shakur, as an early influence, Rocky expressed a desire to keep acting after Sundance. And as he spilled about everything from fashion to film to the current state of hip-hop, it became increasingly clear that his ambitions extend far beyond Park City.

The Guggenheim is gearing up for its annual International Gala benefit Thursday night, but before the main event, the museum wanted to celebrate with a little music, a sprinkling of celebrities and plenty of fashion. On Wednesday evening, in collaboration with the folks at Christian Dior, the museum held a pre-party for the gala, taking over three levels of the museum to host an event where the Veuve Cliquot was free-flowing and the music was plentiful.
The affair was attended by a smattering of It girls, including Karlie Kloss, Zoe Kravitz, Camila Belle and Harley Viera-Newton. Also on hand was Dior Creative Director Raf Simons, who was tucked away in the VIP area chatting with brand muse Marion Cotillard and Dior CEO Sidney Toledano. Guests were treated to a performance by English indie pop band The XX, whose gurgling guitars and chill sound filled the museum with swaying spectators.
Before heading out after the performance, we ran into A$AP Rocky, dressed in a crisp white shirt, black jacket, leather skinnies and oxfords. Rocky is a proud disciple of fashion, and calls Raf Simons one of his favorite designers. “If you step out of your shoe and a guy can tell you what kind of shoe it is, that’s a keeper!” We assume he was referring to himself.
We chatted with the newly-single fashion plate (he split with model Chanel Iman last month) to get his thoughts on hip-hop, fashion and the #1 thing on his Christmas wishlist.
