Despite some of the hardships the past two years have presented him, with the passing of his father and A$AP Yams, Rocky has still managed to maintain and debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 200 chart. With so much happening, we had to ask where he was mentally at this stage of life and he assured us, everything is in good spirits along with the focus, drive and creative energy.

“I’m happy to be here, I feel inspired right now, I just want to create.”

During our discussion A$AP Rocky also made sure to share some of the intricate workings behind A.L.L.A., and of course addressed the critics who we feel kind of unfairly portrayed him these past few weeks.

“Nowadays you got cameras all up in your face, motherfuckers wanna know the grade school shit, and it just takes the thrill and suspense out of shit, so now it goes from a good dope album to oh now he’s just talking about bitches, then I become that guy who just talks about bitches, then next thing before you know it, women will think I only look at them as bitches and that’s not true. I just want to make it clear, I’m young, I do fun stuff, with women while I’m young, a bunch of young men do it and if you don’t fuck with me, suck a dick.”

A.L.L.A. is available now on iTunes.
