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)

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.
