ASAPComplexA 540x360 ASAP Rocky Cover Of Complex December 2012

A$AP Rocky grabs the cover of Complex magazine’s December 2012 issue, and chats about the imminent launch of his long-awaited album, Live.Love.A$AP.  The article includes a q&a in which Rocky, aka Rakim Mayers, discusses the changes that have come with fame, including some painful losses (which sorry but he had to be THE only one surprised by betrayal of a crew member! I mean that kind of thing is biblical).

Complex: What’s changed the most in the past year for you? Rocky: I had a lot of close friends stab me in the back for their own greedy desires. I never saw that coming. I never thought my real niggas would be on some fuck shit with me, and do wack shit. I’m a good nigga, and a lot of people fuck with me and then leave with these accusations trying to fuck up what I worked hard for.

He also brings a little fire by stating flat out that Kanye’s fashion is influenced by him.

Complex: Do you think you’re influencing people like Kanye? Rocky: Of course. That’s obvious. [Laughs.] We’re all in the same circle. He’s way richer than me, but of course he’s influenced by me. C’mon, bro. I made waxed denim cool in hip-hop. Fucking waxed denim and rips in jeans. Nobody else did that. I don’t give a fuck. I didn’t know what I was doing. These jeans are Balmain, and I wear them with a Supreme jacket. Of course I’m influencing.
