A$AP Rocky has had an extraordinary and interesting year.
From become a rap sensation, to meeting one of his idol Rakim, traveling the world, his album leaking a month early to most recently his dad passing away on Christmas, the Harlem Native’s 2012 was full of highs and low and he caught up with Hot 97’s Miss Info to shed light on it all.
The entire A$AP Mob and Miss Info gathered in Harlem’s Black Star Music where Rocky played his new album Love Live ASAP for a full house, with his partner A$AP Ferg by his side. The 24 year old took a moment to touch on meeting Rakim (who he’s named after), traveling outside of the country, working with Danger Mouse and some of his fashion choices naming himself a fashion rocket scientist.
But most interestingly on his album leaking A$AP remained positive and reveals he’s not too worried. He tells Info:
“I’ve been waiting for people to hear this music for so damn long, of course I’ve got to be a businessman but before anything I’m an artist. The album leaked, and I’m a leave it up to my dependable label which I rely on to fix all that….that’s the business aspect. I made my art, ya’ll love it and that’s all I cared about and I just want to thank everybody who anticipated this and who was waiting.“
Overall A$AP seems to still have his head on his shoulders post fame and fortune, and seems very eager in making sure everyone in his team shines just as bright as he does.
