Up and coming rapper ASAP Rocky is bereaved. He has lost his dad who died yesterday. The rapper tweeted a heartfelt message to his dad which read -
R.I.P DAD , UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN . “SEE MY DADDY IN HEAVEN , HE BE DA REALIST G” TTTL.
Rocky also instagrammed a pic of his father. Link below. The artist’s tweet received a flood of commiserations from fans and followers and also from industry brethren. Rihanna tweeted her condolences – “My most sincere condolences bro #BajanBlood,”
There is no word on how ASAP’s dad died. This is what the rapper had said about his dad in an interview -
“Well, my dad is from Barbados. He was a clean cut kind of a guy, especially in the way he dressed,” “I just took the advice he gave me and I ran with it. He told me to always be yourself and always feel comfortable with whatever decision you make because you chose to do it. Just because something doesn’t fit in doesn’t mean it’s not right.”
ASAP Rocky chatted up DJ Drama and for a change it wasn’t about music, but about fashion; kinda related and a cool thing to chat about. ASAP dropped the fact that he is dead sure about his sartorial elegance inspiring Kanye West.
But perhaps what was more interesting was what the up-and-coming rapper had to say about Lil Wayne’s dressing sense “I hate the way Lil Wayne dresses sometimes,” “The lime green Ugg boot thing? I didn’t like that but that’s his style. There’s people who probably hate the way I dress – not a lot – but a few people might hate the way I dress. That’s my style. At the end of the day, I’m not judging. They asked me my opinion, how I felt, and all I gave them was my feedback. He’s got way more money than me, way more successful so I can’t say nothing bad about him.”
Fat Joe burns it up with a mic in his hand leading an ensemble cast including Lil Wayne, A$AP Rocky, and French Montana. The music for this number, Yellow Tape, flows from DJ Khaled’s head. The video for this track was shot in Miami.
This is the official video of the track and has been directed by Eif Rivera. Fat Joe’s going to add this number to an album that has got neither a release date nor a name as yet; but you despair not. Stay tuned and we’ll let you know all the nitty gritty in good time, till then check out this video.
ASAP Rocky, touring to promote his forthcoming album titled LongLiveA$AP, pulled a surprise on the audience when he had Kendrick Lamar join him on stage to spit verses from the number “F*ckin Problems”. The number also features 2 Chainz and Drake, but these homies were conspicuous by their absence.
Rocky performed to a sold out crowd and had other guest stars come up on stage as well, but it was this collaboration that got the most cheers. The number, if the buzz is to be believed, is the standout song of this fall / winter. Let’s see what the album brings in toto.
