This could be the most interesting collaborative mixtape of all time.
In a recent interview with Vulture, Rocky spilled the beans.
“Me and Rod Stewart have a mixtape coming out. It’s called Born To Be Pretty and it’s definitely a panty-dropper. Droppin’ this summer. You already know.”
He made it very clear that he’s not switching genres. Instead, he’s trying to “master” his craft.
“I wouldn’t just jump into another genre. That’s like being an athlete and going from one league to another. For me, I let my inspirations and influences in, and that’s better for the music, as opposed to just trying to do a whole different genre. I think you should master your craft before you present new art to people, or at least try to master it. I enjoyed my first trial with that, but I don’t know if it’s mastered. It might be rookie level. It might just show I’m a novice. But, no, I never wanted to do that. I’m a fan of it, but just because I’m A$AP Rocky doesn’t mean I could just pick up and make a whole rock-and-roll album, just because I like it. I like some psychedelic shit, but that’s just not me. I’m not a rock singer.”
There’s no specific release date for Born To Be Pretty, but it’ll be here sooner than you know it.
You can catch a glimpse of how this mixtape might sound on Rocky’s new single featuring Stewart: “Everyday.”
