Now that the A$AP Rocky has been out for a minute, the spotlight has been pointing at some other players in the Mob. A$AP Ferg is up next with his upcoming Trap Lord mixtape, but it remains to be seen who from the Mob will be breaking next. A$AP Twelvy’s a good bet, as he’s consistently the best part of any A$AP Mob track he’s on and will be joining Bodega Bamz, Black Dave, and Kyle Rapps at our upcoming Rap Party on Wednesday, March 6th at Santos Party House.

I was lucky enough to recently hang with Twelvy as we nerded out on video games, playing laser tag, and being courtside at a Knicks game.

Noisey: How did you get the name Twelvy?
A$AP Twelvy:
I got the name Twelvy because it’s short for 212. Everybody calls me 212 since the area code in Harlem is 212, you know what I’m saying? I’m a real Harlem cat, real New York type. The name 212 stuck with me and I didn’t want to be called “A$AP 212” because it don’t flow right. A$AP Twelvy is smooth and girls love Twelvy.

What’s your favorite number?
Twelve [laughs].
