#FashionCrush-A$AP Rocky (@asvpxrocky)

From the front rows of Paris’s top fashion shows, to the streets of London, one man, whose style consistently captivates my psyche, is the ever stylish and uber talented A$AP Rocky.

His allure is not only indicative of his witty lyrics but also by his cool “don’t-give-a-fuck “ attitude, when it comes to his knowledge of fashion and its many day players.  Those that don’t believe me should refer to his song Fashion Killa, in which he melodically lists the fashion designers his woman bathes herself in day after day.  Listening to the line “Her jeans is Helmut Lang, shoes is Alexander Wang And her shirt the newest Donna Karan wearin’ all the Cartier frames Jean Paul Gaultiers ‘ cause they match with her persona,” simply makes me melt with the notion that a rapper could be so unapologetically real about his love of fashion.  Those words left me pondering that perhaps there is rap that I could actually relate too.

Not only has he embraced fashion, but the fashion world has also stood up and taken notice.  He became the first African American male ever to front a campaign for the historical, and ridiculously famous House of Dior.  Currently, he can also be seen putting his wonderfully handsome features to use in the world’s most notable fashion magazines, having graced the pages of American Vogue; as well as the covers of Dazed & Confused, I-D, and Jalouse.

His personal style, in my opinion, is nothing short of brilliant, successfully mixing Parisian chic with his signature street flare (i.e. grills and gold chains) making it hard not to spot his influence among rappers and hard street thugs alike. Even yours truly looks to him for inspiration when I’m having trouble choosing an outfit for work.   One thing I can say about this elegant lyricist is that if his existence is a foreshadowing of men’s style for the future, I couldn’t think of a better person to emulate.

In Stupid News…A$AP Rocky (@asvpxrocky) Accused of Trashing NYC Condo, Hit With $175k Lawsuit

Say what?! Rapper A$AP Rocky has been accused of trashing a NYC condo he leased for the last few years, and the landlord feels the repair for all damages are worth a lawsuit of $175,000!

Apparently A$AP Rocky made some alterations to the condo without informing the landlord first. Once the landlord was aware of the alterations, the two came to an agreement that the rapper would restore them back to the original condition of the unit without any damage being done.

It has been reported that upon Rocky’s departure of the unit, the landlord claims that on top of the rapper’s failure to restore the alterations as promised, there was a lot more damage done to the unit.

According to Scott Crowe, the owner of the condo suing Rocky, the rapper left the place “in a generally filthy state with dirt, huge piles of debris, and garbage throughout the Unit.”

Who Is Joe Fox (@yesjoefox)?

A$AP Rocky’s new album At.Long.Last.A$AP is now on the shelves and streaming outlets after an early release. If you have heard it or even checked out the tracklist, I know you were wondering, “Who the hell is Joe Fox and why is he on damn near every song on the album?”

Nonetheless, it is a pretty impressive start considering the guy has never been featured on any album ever! The young, smooth british songstress instantly captured listeners attention with his soothing, soulful vocals and the melodic screams coming from his guitar. On a recent interview with Sway, Rocky explained how he just ran into the London musician performing with his guitar outside of the studio he was recording in in London. Fox offered Rocky a mixtape but Rocky preferred to hear him play right there live. He instantly loved the music and the rest was history.

Celebrity Beef? A$AP Rocky (@asvpxrocky) Explains Rita Ora (@RitaOra) Diss!

A$AP Rocky didn’t only drop gems on his new, early released album “At.Long.Last.A$AP”, he also threw a few of them at some of his music peers; mainly his former love interests. He threw gems at Rihanna, Iggy Azalea, and some heavier gems at Rita Ora.

Yesterday, Mr. Flacko went up to BBC Radio 1 to talk about his new album and also cleared up some of the fog surrounding the controversial lyrics towards his secret love affair with Ora on the track “Better Things”. “I just want to clarify, this isn’t me saying, people don’t go listen to Rita Ora, or she’s an ugly person or nothing, I’m not saying she’s a terrible person, I’m just saying that when I was in a relationship and I did things with her that I wasn’t supposed to do, she had a big mouth,” Rocky said.

Not sure what those things were, but it most have been heavy if the outspoken, no-f**ks-given Rocky had to keep it under the radar just like the relationship. Rocky also mentioned that the song was old but he still wanted to include it on the album anyway despite the lyrics because it’s a good song.

….Am I the only one that’s still pondering on what that thing they “weren’t supposed to be doing” was? Maybe Chanel Iman, Rocky’s ex-girlfriend, knows. *Sips tea and walks away*

A$AP Rocky (@asvpxrocky): The Actor?

A$AP Rocky and the A$AP Mob have been making major moves and big splashes in almost every avenue of dope-ness they can possibly get there hands on. From music to fashion to art, it seems like there is nothing A$AP can’t conquer; and now, you can add film to the list?

A$AP Rocky has been hinting for the last couple of years that Hollywood was calling and acting looked like the next move for him. Fast forward to now, Rocky will get his debut on the big screen at Sundance in Director Rick Famuyiwa’s film “Dope” this week. The film will also feature stars like Zoe Kravitz, Tyga, Vince Staples, and more. The film is produced by Sean Combs, Forest Whitaker, and Pharrell amongst others.

“The main character, Malcolm (Shameik Moore) is a Nineties hip-hop geek,” Famuyiwa told Entertainment Weekly. “He isn’t a drug dealer or a gang banger. He’s into all types of music, and video games and computers. We’ve seen a lot of films about everything else in these neighborhoods—the crime, the athletes, the gangs—but you don’t see films about the regular kids who have to survive in these streets.”

Get ready to see A$AP Rocky make his cameo in the film “Dope” on the big screen soon. Here is the first trailer for the project. Let us know what you think about it.
