A few weeks ago, ScHoolboy Q hinted about the possibility of recording an entire project with Harlem upstart A$Ap Rocky. Now, in a recent interview with Maurice Garland, the TDE rapper talked about the possibility of recording a long-form collaboration with the leader of the A$AP Mob.

Although Q didn’t provide any further details about the project, he explained that both artists – who shared the booth on both of their respective mixtapes Habits and Contradictions and Live.Love.A$AP – are still very much interested in pursuing the collab. He did explain that the project most likely won’t get off the ground until the both of them finish their touring duties.

“I don’t have an answer [for when it’s gonna drop],” he said. “We’re trying, we’re trying. He’s on the road, I’m on the road. We’re gonna try and get it together. You gotta have it sound right – two of the hottest niggas coming up. I’m not a cocky nigga, but I call myself [one of] the hottest niggas [coming up in the game]. But yeah, Rocky, we gotta do it.”

Q also spoke about balancing his role as a rapper and a father. He explains that while he doesn’t get to see his young daughter while touring, he always brings her to recoridng sessions, including one with the legendary Dr. Dre.

“It’s cool [being a father], my little baby Joy-Joy. I just talked to right before I went on stage,” he said. “She’s with me in the studio – my baby’s a studio baby…everybody know. Everybody knows my daughter – [Dr.] Dre, everybody.”

The self-proclaimed pretty motherf*cker is virtually everywhere these days. And upon gracing the cover of Complex’s forthcoming issue, the New York-based publication also caught up with Rocky to discuss his favorite albums. There are several artists and projects named that you would definitely expect, along with a gang that may leave you a little shocked. Regardless, head on over to Complex to see A$AP Rocky’s 25 favorite albums.

If you haven’t heard by now, Los Angeles rapper Schoolboy Q released his album, Habits & Contradictions, this past weekend and it’s been received very well by the public. With guest appearances from Dom Kennedy, Curren$y, Jhene Aiko, and TDE labelmates Kendrick Lamar and Jay Rock, it’s definitely a project to check out. One of the standout songs from it is the Kid Cudi lyric-sampling single, “Hands On The Wheel,” which features none other than Harlem’s newest rap star, A$AP Rocky. Following up from their collaboration on Rocky’s LiveLoveA$AP mixtape, “Brand New Guy,” and the dark visuals to the Habits & Contradictions album opener, “Sacreligious,” that we saw in late November, Q has returned with the music video for “Hands On The Wheel.” In the clip, he and Rocky give viewers a look into the lives of two of the most buzzing rappers of the moment, complete with women, weed and 40s. Watch the hazy, monochrome visuals above, and head over to iTunes to purchase Habits & Contradictions.


A$AP Rocky – CEO Freestyle

December 22, 2011

A$AP Rocky lets loose an unreleased freestyle recorded back in either 2006-07. Highlighting that he’s trillness has been present since back in those days, he hits his Twitter to release this little surprise. Check it out and download the tune below.



A$AP Rocky speaks on chopped and screwed version of “LIVE. LOVE. A$AP,” recruits Bun B and Paul Wall for the project.

Only weeks after the release of LIVE. LOVE. A$AP and A$AP Rocky already has major plans for the chopped and screwed version of his project. A$AP went so far as to call the new chopped and screwed version “classic” and also added that he may have to enlist Scarface for the project.

“You can expect the best baby,” said A$AP when asked if there would be any surprises on the project. “Bun B, fuckin Paul Wall, maybe even Slim Thug. Shit man, I don’t know man. I might have to fuck with Scarface. That’s how really trill it’s getting. That’s gonna be fuckin classic right there.”

Aside from securing the likes of Bun B and Paul Wall for his next project A$AP has also caught the attention of producer/rapper Pharrell Williams.

“Yo, Pharrell reached out to me. He gave me some wise words like on some mentor shit. He was just looking down upon me as a young brother trying to get it and he just had nothing but kind shit to say to me and we’re gonna build,” A$AP explained to Hip Hop At Lunch. “I’m going out to Miami hopefully I see him when I get out there, but he told me one of his favorite lines was from the song ‘Out Of This World.’ The line was, ‘You a lie like fly without the letter f.’ When he told me that’s when I knew ‘Oh yea, he’s not just fronting saying he likes my music.’”

A$AP also spoke on touring with Kendrick Lamar and Drake and revealed that it was quite the learning experience touring with the two artists.

“It’s amazing. Both of those guys are like incredible. It’s a learning experience for me. I’m having fun at the same time. Doing what I love doing. They inspired me too,” the rapper explained.

New one from Harlem’s A$AP Rocky and again, the emerging star on the rap scene embraces the Southern Way of Life with “Grippin Woodgrain”. The RCA signee is joined by Seth Narley on this laidback tune and further whets the appetite for his full-length debut LiveLoveA$AP, due later this year.
