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.

Nardwuar vs. ASAP Rocky

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!”

I reeeeeeeally hope this gets done right and if the trailer is any indication, I think it’s in good hands.  Fun fact: Big L is my favorite MC of all-time…
