Various artists have been mentioned as working on ASAP Rocky’s first album and now pictures have surfaced showing Rocky and Kanye (above) recently getting together to cook up something. Not sure who is making what for who, but apparently Fat Joe and producer Diplo among others were also in on the session. Via Theurbandaily.

Update: We see ASAP is quoted in a Billboard interview as saying he has a crush on Lana del Ray and their single ”Ridin” (leaked last week) may or may not be featured on his upcoming album. And he’s also working with Santigold!

ASAP Rocky Chats On Music, Alexander Wang, Azaelia, Iggy Etc.

27 March 2012, 20.36 | Posted in Music | No comments »

ASAP Rocky covers a ton of ground in an interview in which he chats about his upcoming single, “Pain,” why it’s not yet time for him to work with Drake (”a kind-hearted kid”), being told to keep your eye on the prize by Kanye, and working with Alexander Wang(!) on the styling for his upcoming video “Cristal.” 

He then goes on to discuss how Azaelia Banks might be mad at his crew, and his belief it was “petty” and a “low blow” for Banks to pick on Iggy Azalea over her runaway slavemaster lyrics because “she’s not a racist–trust me” (rep for your woman, Rock!). He finishes by describing his upcoming album as “epic,” “great” and “futuristic.”

Video: DJ Nardwuar Interviews ASAP Rocky & Crew

He is new to me, but apparently Canadian DJ journalist and musician Nardwuar the Human Serviette is known for a q&a style marked by his ability to dig up unknown details on his subjects’ history, which he springs on them during the interview. Throughout the exchange he also gives out pertinent gifts. Watch as he takes on the ASAP crew while in Austin at the recent SXSW event with hilarious results that keep ASAP Rocky flashing his “pretty” smile throughout. Stayed tuned for the group pose scene at the end when Rocky returns and gives Nardwuar a gift in return. Hysterical.

XXL Explains ‘Freshmen 10′ Cover And ASAP Absence

06 March 2012, 18.11 | Posted in Magazines, Music | No comments »

Editors for XXL visit radio station Hot 97 and explain some of the more controversial feedback resulting from the artists chosen for the magazines recent “Freshman 10″ cover. It’s been documented that Harlem rap artist ASAP Rocky opted out, but the Hot 97 DJs make the valid argument that it shouldn’t have been his choice and thus would have worked better as an article rather than a cover story. The editors also explain that Iggy Azalea–probably the most controversial of the 10 chosen, gained her spot through a reader vote.

Photographer Brock Fetch: Iggy Azalea, ASAP Crew, Etc.

BrockFetch 540x358 Photographer Brock Fetch: Iggy Azalea, ASAP Crew, Etc.

Was doing a deep dive on Tumblr last night and worked my way back to photographer Brock Fetch’s site and thought I would share the goodness. He does a lot of concert photography and seems to be almost a staff photographer for the ASAP crew. A side benefit is the fashion worn by his subjects. (On that note, can I tell you how much I am appreciating the new Harlem youth’s interpretation of grunge, with the Dr. Martens and flannel shirts, triple luv!)

That’s Iggy Azalea peforming above. She along with nine other performers recently were featured on the cover of  XXL’s “Freshman Class” issue, for which a spot was supposedly offered to and turned down by ASAP Rocky. Quite the chess player that one!
