A$AP Rocky looks happy.

He’s sitting in a green room, waiting for his turn to film scenes for Pusha-T’s “MPA” video. Fellow Mob member A$AP Nast and longtime mentor Chase Infinite sit on a couch while Rocky relaxes in a vintage barber chair.

Before we begin our interview, he looks up at a rack of clothes and has an idea. He wants to throw on a “cozy” green Stussy robe. When he sits back down, he looks even more relaxed, laughing as jokes and smoke fill the room.

But Rocky’s happiness doesn’t just come from this; the state of hip-hop’s also got him smiling.

A$AP Rocky Covers Johnson Magazine: Issue 001

by @Djordje

johnson-magazine-00

Rob Meyers, editor-in-chief of Johnson, voices an understanding of today’s culture that no one else is really talking about. On how today’s modern man can be described, Meyers says, ““Everyday it feels like our lives are a constant mixture of high brow and low brow culture. No guy wears head to toe designer clothing, he mixes high fashion with street wear and a bit of vintage…This publication stands to represent both ends of the cultural thread that makes the modern man.”

Inspired by a progressive and pragmatic view of a contemporary fashion environment, Johnson caters to what is historically known as a very broad category: the men’s magazine. On the inspiration behind the new project, Meyers adds, “Johnson is not engineered for any particular social background, cultural association or sexual orientation. It’s inspired by every minute channel of modern life in its truest form: from the city-skipping fashion editor to the working class guy.” For its inaugural issue, the publication features a wide range of topics that include style, music, cars, food and interiors, tapping the likes of Harlem rapper A$AP Rocky and gender-defying designer J.W. Anderson. Issue 001 will be released internationally this week. You can check out a preview of the A$AP Rocky feature above, and don’t forget to follow Johnson on Instagram to stay updated.

A$AP Rocky Interview with Noisey Australia

by @Djordje

asap3

It’s been a year of extremes for A$AP Rocky, or Pretty Flacko, the name he tells me he prefers when we are introduced. The Sundance premiere of Dope, in which the Harlem rapper made his acting debut, came just six days after the tragic loss of his friend and A$AP worldwide co-creator, A$AP Yams.

Yams’s (born Steven Rodriguez) print is all over Rocky’s latest album At.Long.Last.A$AP or A.L.L.A. He co-executive produced the album, and Rocky pays full tribute to his co-conspirator on the album cover by rocking Yams’s distinctive purple birthmark.

A.L.L.A is an impressive record. A considered chronicle of an artist transitioning from a young man filled with ambition, bravado and game to one who has truly lived and wishes to speak honestly. It also sees Rocky flex a more dexterous flow with a confidence that has him go toe-to-toe with Yeezy, Weezy, Juicy J, Future, Schoolboy Q, and, of course, Rod Stewart.

On the phone Rocky is warm, gracious and playful, constantly acknowledging and praising others. He explains that he wants to make the rawest music possible for his rawest fans and that he’s excited for next year’s Australia tour, presented by Noisey.

A$AP Rocky Interview with Time Out New York

by @Djordje

image-1

A$AP Rocky is late. Two hours late, to be exact. Then, out of nowhere, he rolls up (literally) to our cover shoot on an electronic skateboard, which he uses to travel from the door of his Escalade to the studio floor, approximately 30 feet away. “I’m just a big kid,” he shrugs, exposing a full-on golden smile—made of real gold—beneath his Céline shades. As with any kid, it’s hard to stay mad at him. But he’s not really a kid. He’s a 26-year-old Harlem-bred rapper who’s headlining the Theater at Madison Square Garden September 22 with fellow headline-making MCs Tyler, the Creator—who was recently banned from entering the U.K.—Vince Staples and Danny Brown. The event tops off a huge four years, during which Rocky’s ascended from releasing a mixtape (2011’s online freebie Live.Love.A$AP) to signing a $3 million deal with Sony, dropping two No. 1 albums and collaborating with Skrillex, Lana Del Rey, Kanye West and, most recently, Rod Stewart on At.Long.Last.A$AP. (The record’s acronym, by the way, is a reference to Allah.) During our candid chat—which is all conducted while Rocky rides his skateboard—the stylish MC touches on everything from political hip-hop to why God created weed.
