A$AP Rocky has really blown up in the last couple of years, he must look like a hip-hop Ganesha elephant God behind his rose-gold teeth to have enough hands to have so many fingers in so many pies, removing obstacles and tooting fashion-referential lyrics through his wrinkly trunk-nose-hose.
He’s currently on tour with Rihanna, he’s worked with Raf Simons and walked the runway for Hood By Air. He’s musically corroborated with Florence Welch and Clams Casino among many others and worked with Alexander Wang in his Fall 2012 commercial with Diplo and his Spring 2013 ‘T’ [line] video with Bon “securrrrry” Qui Qui.\
Basically the only worthwhile person he hasn’t yet worked with is Sabrina the Teenage Witch, but this isn’t on the cards..not yet anyway!
A$AP is the cover girl for Interview Magazine’s April Issue which includes an interview between himself and collaborator Alexander Wang where they discuss Wang’s appointment as head honcho at the helm of Balenciaga, the loss of Rocky’s father and “the gay thing”:
“It’s 2013, and it’s a shame that, to this day, that topic still gets people all excited. It’s crazy. And it makes me upset…because it makes it seem like everybody in hip-hop is small-minded or stupid–and that’s not the case.”
