Yeah I'm not trying to be a basher, still really dig his music, but kind of BS that he keeps saying he directs his own videos.

I respected A$AP for saying he always directs his videos...but I'm starting to think that's a bunch of garbage. I looked up to Tyler, The Creator because Yonkers and She were dope videos and I've even seen old videos of his on his Vimeo page, so I know filmmaking is definetly a hobby of his, leading me to believe he definitely makes the treatments for his videos. As an aspiring filmmaker I did some research because I was interested and it seems to me like Rocky is just saying he directs his videos because he thinks it's a cool thing to do. Don't get me wrong he definitely has input on his videos, but so does any rapper in his music video. I just have a big problem with him saying he directs his videos when there are professional directors actually creating the work.

The purple swag video director is credited as Jason Ono and on his website it also says so, Rocky is only co-director: http://jasonano.com/

And for the Peso video the director is Abteen Bagheri and ASAP is once again credited as co-director. http://vimeo.com/abteen/videos

And the Wassup video is credited as "A video by A$AP Rocky, Jacob Burghart and Andy Capper." from Vice.

Honestly even the video "he directed" for Danny Brown is credited as also being directed by The ICU, http://vimeo.com/theicu/videos whose done videos for Kendrick, Joell etc.


A$AP I'm pretty sure directs just cause he doesn't have his own single work and shit doesn't me he doesn't. Why are you trying os hard to take credit away form him when you have no proof at all just statements pointing out he has co-directors in the videos his directed maybe's hes need equipment or another perspective but for all you know h could of been doing most of the work.

Yeah you never know. Maybe he really does direct his vids but he just needs equipment or watever. But the fact that this information exists says that there's something suss bout this niggas directing. Dont believe everything you see or hear.

lmao deadass, that's what having a professional "Co-director" means. The Purple Swag and Peso vids were OD high quality and if you think Rocky did the majority of the creative heavy lifting on the production of those videos, you stupid.

All I do is smoke weed, blow lines, and listen to MF DOOM. And rap. http://www.facebook.com/SpacemanNYC

i'm sure they're his concepts but he has someone else get the visuals locked, that's still enough for me to give him credit, but his vids aren't that much of a creative stretch really, who cares?

rocky mentioned pharrell in a tweet earlier with a pic of some keys and shit, so that makes sense. Pharrell and rocky could make some dope music, but i feel like his production style is a bit different to what rocky flows on normally.

In one of Rockys songs he says "Fuck a metrosexual. Suck a dick, I'm disrespectful." If ANY rapper right now could be considered a metrosexual it's definitely Rocky. I think he just wasn't brave enough to say "homosexual" and it back fired on him.

i think he might have been referring to people who refer to him as a metrosexual as in like he doesnt want to be labeled as such.
