A$AP Rocky needs no introduction in today’s rap sphere; the rise from blog sensation to international superstar has elevated the Harlem rapper beyond Manhattan’s ears to the world’s stage. While in France taking in Paris Fashion Week, Rocky sat down to speak with Parisian media outlet OFIVE TV for an exclusive interview. The conversation was documented only a few days after the release of Rocky’s major label studio debut Long.Live.A$AP, which so far has received overwhelmingly positive reviews. With the album as a major talking point, Rocky reveals his thoughts on hype, references Gil Scott Heron in regards to the future of music, and who he thinks had the best verse on “1 Train” (though that’s infinitely debatable). There’s no loss of conversation material here, so enjoy the link above with some popcorn, juice and snacks.
