Complex Names A$AP Rocky as The Best Dressed Man of 2016

by @Djordje

2016 can be marked as the year that ASAP Rocky completed his ascension from streetwear star to bona fide high fashion habitué. With the help of consistently killer front row style—see his Gucci Resort 2017 look—and his appointment as the new face of Dior Homme, Rocky became the “Fashion Killa” that he rapped about years ago. What’s been truly great about Rocky’s rise is a few things that have remained true; he hasn’t turned his back on any of the hallmarks that made him him. Rocky is still very Harlem jiggy, as evidenced by the floor-length mink he rocked at the Yeezy Season Three presentation. With his nostalgic Guess Jeans collaboration, he’s shown that he hasn’t forgotten the great streetwear brands of his youth. And no one can rock a classic ’90s style moment quite like him: white t-shirt tucked into light blue jeans, casually cinched with a belt, and topped with a black sport coat. Rocky is the rarest of style dudes; a man who can naturally embody the past and present with the ease of a furry Gucci mule. —Deidre Dyer

A$AP Rocky Interview with HYPEBEAST

by @Djordje

asap-rocky-cozy-tapes-hypebeast-interview-6

It’s been a long time coming, but as promised A$AP Mob has officially released their studio album Cozy Tapes Vol. 1: Friends. The album’s cover clearly pays tribute to their late member A$AP Yams, while the tracks live up to the name “Friends” by not only featuring members of the Mob, but also a slew of artists they co-sign. There’s no shortage of up-and-coming rappers on the album as Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Yachty, Madeintyo and Playboi Carti all drop verses; while “Nasty’s World” serves as a refreshing track featuring Onyx, a group that helped pave the way for many of today’s hip-hop collectives – including A$AP Mob. Tyler, the Creator also has a noteworthy contribution on the final track of the album “Telephone Calls” with friend/tourmate A$AP Rocky.

Despite the Mob’s frontman A$AP Rocky being seemingly everywhere over the past year, he still manages to appease his fans by hopping on a list of the Cozy tracks. Few artists in hip-hop have been able to navigate different worlds with as much success as Rocky, who has managed to solidify spots in music, high fashion and film. Adding to the impressive list of accolades is his recent partnership with MTV, where he’s landed a major role as a creative for the network. All of these achievements are a testament to his star power and with no signs of letting up anytime soon, it’s clear that Flacko’s in the game for the long haul.

We caught up with A$AP Rocky at a private Cozy Tapes listening session held in Los Angeles to ask him about the new album, his creative work with MTV and his hectic lifestyle. Check out the full discussion with Rocky below as he almost slips up to reveal some major upcoming personal projects in the works.

A Conversation with A$AP Rocky About Making ‘Cozy Tapes’ without A$AP Yams

A$AP Yams may no longer be here in a physical form, but his vision is still alive and well. The Harlem-born musical genius behind the success of A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ferg and A$AP Mob as a whole is seeing his passion project come to fruition with Cozy Tapes Vol. 1: Friends, the star-studded compilation project that Yammy always dreamed of. (His baby photo graces the album artwork).

The Mob—aforementioned breakout stars Rocky and Ferg, plus A$AP Nast, A$AP Twelvyy and A$AP Ant—banded together while mourning its visionary, who died of an accidental drug overdose in Jan. 2015. But the compilation album has been a long time coming. A$AP Mob dropped its freebie debut mixtape Lord$ Never Worry back in 2012, setting the stage for a proper studio project called L.O.R.D.. A$AP Nast led the way with the uber ‘90s nostalgia of “Trillmatic” in Dec. 2013, followed by A$AP Twelvyy’s “Xscape” and posse cut “Hella Hoes.” Yet after six months of album delays, Yams gave fans an update via his Tumblr account in Sept. 2014. “L.O.R.D. IS SCRAPPED,” he wrote, later citing “too many energies” and inability to “get everybody on the same page.”

But Yams had been filling his own pages with ideas for the project that would become A$AP Mob’s version of Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers—notes that are now in the possession of fashion-forward superstar and de facto leader A$AP Rocky.

Three days before the Halloween release of Cozy Tapes, Rocky sits back in a dark, smoky room at Hollywood’s famed Record Plant studio, rocking a black hoodie and ultra-wide black pants—a look he describes as “goth cozy.” He chats with Genius about the project’s recording process, eclectic influences, big-name guest list, and Yams’ guidance from beyond.

(Video) A$AP Mob – Money Man

by @Djordje

A$AP Rocky announced to the world via tweet (and crying Benedict Cumberbatch GIF) last weekend that “Cozy Tapes Vol. 1” was finished.

“Cozy Tapes” has been a labor of love and devotion for Rocky. The project, which features multiple A$AP Mob members, was initiated by close friend A$AP Yams, who died suddenly in early 2015. While there’s no release date yet for “Cozy Tapes,” we’re one step closer today with the release of the film “Money Man,” which includes two tracks from the album.

The intense 12-minute short film was directed by AWGE, A$AP Rocky’s creative collective, and tells the tragic story of Rina, a character trapped in a world of crime and misfortune. It is soundtracked by the song “Money Man” featuring A$AP Nast and a second song featuring Skepta. Both songs were recorded at Red Bull Studios London.

The film — shot over three days in northwest London — also features A$AP Nast and Skepta. Also making an appearance is Said Taghmaoui, the screenwriter and actor, who starred in the groundbreaking 1995 French film “La Haine,” upon which the “Money Man” film takes its inspiration, and the acclaimed David O. Russell movie “Three Kings.”

Last month, A$AP Rocky dropped the track “Crazy Brazy” — featuring A$AP Rocky, the Atlanta rapper Key! and A$AP Twelvvy — which is also on “Cozy Tapes.” In an interview with MTV, Rocky called the album “an introduction to a new cozy way. It’s really rap-punk meets alternative underground.”

Premiere via Red Bull UK.
