Known for his singles “Peso” and “Purple Swag,” young Harlem rapper ASAP Rocky is scheduled to be the next big thing, securing a spot on Drake’s “Club Paradise Tour,” and releasing his first mixtape LIVELOVEA$AP someday soon. Read below to learn more.
A$AP Rocky is… that pretty muthafucka, that’s who he is. He’s the dude that has New York on his back, has hip-hop on his back for that matter. He’s that new up and coming freshman that everybody show’s so much love to. He’s the god of true love and, you know, there’s only a few that hate him. He’s that gold teeth, french braid, Rick Owen wearing muthafucka that the hoes love too. Laughs.
Being born & raised in Harlem, New York… made me the man who I am today. It help me be diverse, especially with the whole fashion influence, you know, downtown and shit like that. It helped me to appreciate different cultures.
Also, listen to Pusha T’s “Peso” freestyle:
Leaving the midtown SafeHouse has been… pretty whack because hoes don’t like to travel to Jersey. Laughs.
The most difficult part of life is… is the transformation between lessons and consequences…honestly.
Making LiveLoveA$AP has been… well overdue. Laughs. It’s been an adventure. It’s been awesome…
Getting ready to tour with Drake and Kendrick Lemar… is fun when I’m thinking about all the pussy I’m going to get. Laughs.
Starting next year… I wanna start donating money to the less fortunate…seriously. I want to give back.
