ASAP Rocky on Sound Session (video)

Posted in Artists, Interviews on May 27th, 2013 by Hyphen

Recently, J. Moore and I were joined on SNSS by A$AP Rocky for an interview in our KUBE 93 studio.  Rocky talked in depth about his background, including how his brother first got him into hip-hop, his first rhyme, his influences locally (Big L, D.I.T.C., McGruff, Children Of The Corn, etc.) and around the country, and his early relationships with the A$AP Mob.  He also spoke on how “Long Live A$AP” has been well received, even with the early leak, and about his collaboration with Skrillex for “Wild For The Night.”  In discussing that song and video, Rocky mentioned his appreciation of the women in the Dominican Republic, especially his favorite group, cougars.

Shout to A$AP for coming through and our Detooz Films friends for hooking up the video.

ASAP Rocky ft. Skrillex and Birdy Nam Nam – Wild For The Night (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on March 26th, 2013 by Hyphen

When I first peeped Rocky’s album, I actually thought this song sounded mad out of place and it was kind of a jarring switch from the vibe of the whole project.  That still might be the case to be honest, but on its own, this is my jaaaaaaam.  I dunno about most dub-step x hip-hop records, but when they hit, they come out sounding RIGHT.  This is one of those occasions.

Seattle people: we’ll be giving out 2 pairs of passes to meet ASAP Rocky at our April 3rd Studio 93 on this coming Sound Session.  Tune in if you’re trying to get down with the Mob.

ASAP Rocky – Purple Kisses (video)

Well this one is about as self-explanatory as possible.  It goes though.

Look out for the ASAP Mob Lords Never Worry album dropping on the 28th.

Nardwuar vs. ASAP Rocky

Posted in Artists, Other Peoples' Interviews, Videos on March 25th, 2012 by Hyphen

Alright, last Nardwuar interview from SXSW…I just love these…and you can’t even front, they actually get the artists to reveal a little more about their history than most interviews.

Plus, this might be the best ending in a while.  “Everybody Harlem Shake!”

New Jerome D visuals for one of the standout records off Q’s new Habits & Contradictions project.  Loving the sample.
