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.

A$AP Twelvyy Interview with Complex

by @Djordje

Jamel “ASAP Twelvyy” Phillips was, along with ASAP Yams, one of the founders of the ASAP Mob, the crew that’s taken over its hometown of NYC, and much of the world as well. With the solo stardoms of ASAP Rocky and ASAP Ferg firmly established, it’s Twelvyy’s turn.

Twelvyy’s brand-new album 12 paints a picture of his life growing up in Harlem and then in the Castle Hill (or “Castle Hell,” as the opening song has it) section of the Bronx, finding his crew, and the triumphs and tragedies that occurred along the way—the most notable of the which is Yams’ death in 2015. His loss permeates the album.

I sat down with Twelvyy, 28, at the Complex office to get an idea of how the album came to be—and what a certain cold-remedy-inspired viral hit had to do with anything.

(Video) A$AP Ferg Talks To Complex at NBA All-Star Weekend

On Sunday afternoon A$AP Ferg wasn’t scheduled to talk to Complex. But, as luck would have it, he just happened to be stuck in traffic on New Orleans’ Royal Street (where we were at) while on his way to the Voodoo Museum, and noticed a couple of high school friends in the neighborhood. Once he learned that 2 Chainz was about to take the stage he stuck around to catch up with us.

Cool, impromptu interviews always welcome.

While he was checking in he made sure to send shout-outs in the direction of James Harden and Nick Young, let us know that the follow-up to 2016’s Cozy Tapes Vol. 1 is coming soon, and also that he has his own continuation of 2016’s Always Strive and Prosper, which he personally guarantees will be lit.

Guess we’ll find out if he can follow through on that soon enough.

(Video) A$AP Bari Talks To Complex About VLONE Pop-Up

by @Djordje

Today, ASAP Bari is finally opening the doors to his weekend-long VLONE x NikeLab pop-up in Harlem. The pop-up, located at 113 West 116th St., will carry various VLONE items, including the insanely hyped Air Force 1s, clothing, accessories (a headband, basketball, and pins), and white AF1s that will be customized by an artist on the spot.

We stopped by the pop-up yesterday for a media preview. By the time we left, there was already a line—hours before the pop-up even opens to the public. While we were there, we spoke to Bari about VLONE, whether or not he ever expected the brand to get this big, and if he’s planning a wider release for the special AF1s. Of course, we also had to ask the question on everyone’s mind: What’s up with the VLONE x Nike AF1 high he teased?
