A$AP Rocky Confrontational Interview In His Hotel Room In Shanghai

Published

on

Rap star & Fashion Icon A$AP Rocky allowed Lou Stoppard to interview him in his hotel room in Shanghai for the confrontational ‘In Your Face’ series.

Right after his show in Shangai, the rap superstar and fashion icon authorized SHOWStudio to proceed an intense 17-minute interview in his hotel room.

A close-up square shot of Flacko with tame lights will be enough to set the mood and start the question.

First asked how he felt about his show, the young rapper answered that he feels electrified especially when the crowd is very responsive. He is then asked what is it like to be a man in 2017, but apparently, he doesn’t get how deep the question was and keeps on puffing on his joint. Reinterpreting the question to what it is to be ‘THE’ man in 2017, we can clearly understand that he lives that life. A mix of confidence and what seems to be a stuck-up attitude, the New York emcee then clarifies the fact that he is not a role model.

However, it is crystal clear, Rocky is a brilliant business man who managed to keep his net worth from media outlets. As a lot of young influencers might have went the same path, Rocky has built longevity in his career and is surely not going anywhere.

yeah and I think I’d do a good job at being responsible for those who look up to me as far as making good decisions career wise far as being entrepreneur making money commodities entities etcetera … So yeah but as far as me you know signing up my hack not smoking shit like that fuck that man.

When asked about the Raf Simons worshiping he has spread for the past years, the A$ap front man makes his point.

“I mean Raf is a pioneer …  within himself Raf working with Jil Sander  and there was a lot of his early collections I connected to, so you know, since I was a teenager, all his stuff have been about being rebellious and being a teenager and what not, you know. I think raf signs and his aesthetics was crazy too so you I fucked with raf since day one, you know as a designer and as an artist.”

Back in 2013, the rapper took issue with ‘ the gay thing’ in the NYdailyNews interview, Lou gave Rocky the opportunity to clear up his feelings on the fashion industry, gay people and the hip hop community standards concerning the subject.

” I don’t know if it really was ever really a problem. But it sure was thing or is it a thing … You know for me I live life, I don’t really prejudge people or have preconceived notions about gay people, no shit like that. You got good people and bad people, it is what it is, [ …] I think this was what’s gonna be, is what’s gonna be and like you know how I said prior, you’re not doing a good job at being a leader because it’s just like those kind of leadership skills and showing people that having, you know, judging people without meeting them is just not, it’s just wrong.”

On the drug side, he shuts down the British interviewer telling her to stop making it sound like he does ‘Drugs’ and quote Bob Marley who conjured Marijuana as earth natural gift. However the rapper only acknowledge using one drug, marijuana, but kind of stumble upon the question:

“I ain’t justifying what I do, I’m just letting you know it is like I don’t do no fucking “drugs”. Like that’s at the same time, it’s like to each his own. There’s people who do tobacco and it kills them quicker than half of the drugs I used
He also talks on how many time he felt in love and what part it plays in his creative process. How women influence his vision but denies being a feminist and could come across mysogynistic due to his A$ap Rocky side.
He also goes deep on how he feel about the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement, talks about people who bandwagoned it and rephrase it, as he does not fully developped the concept, into : ‘Does black lives matter to white people ?’

I’m everything I wanted to be, I turned out even better

After the release of their most anticipated drop of the year and the last chapter to their FW17 collection dropping Thursday, Supreme bags headlines once again as rumors spread that they are in talk with Rolex for a 2018 collaboration.

As for their first attempt to do unauthorized Louis Vuitton items, Supreme took the liberty to customize Submariners that boasts the “F**K EM” slogan back in 2013. The unauthorized limited edition wristwear was rumored to have been only a friends and family release, with just 20 units being produced selling for between $10,000 and $12,000 which were last seen for $50,000 on Stadium Goods in December 2015.
