With collaborations with everyone from Krispy Kreme to GUESS Jeans and a new album on the way, to say A$AP Rocky is busy would be an understatement. The A$AP Mob head honcho sat down with SHOWstudio to discuss his impressive grind and address those who admire him.
“I think I do a good job at being responsible for those that look up to me as far as making good decisions career-wise. As far as me cleaning up my act and not smoking, shit like that…fuck that,” Flacko said, claiming he’s “the best role model because I’m not a role model.”
Due to his deep admiration for the Belgian designer, A$AP Rocky has been almost synonymous with Raf Simons these days, and he explained why he’s resonated with him for so long.
“Raf is a pioneer in himself. A lot of his early collections I connected to…a lot of his stuff is about being rebellious and being a teenager and what not. I’ve been fuckin’ with Raf since day one out of the gate.”
Rocky chatted about his love for LSD, marijuana, Harlem and London, where he recently hosted an AWGE pop-up bodega at Selfridges. According to the self-proclaimed Renaissance Man, if he died today, he’d be a legend, and he wants his skull in teeth to be preserved in a museum next to Michele Lamy’s. Check out the full interview above.
