The money, girls, magazine covers, sold-out shows, and international stardom are all a reality now for hip hop’s rising star, A$AP Rocky. This week is proof alone how fast the promotional train is running.
First, a teaser for a forthcoming documentary on the young rapper and his crew by directors Luke + Barber which airs on Channel4 in the UK in August and worldwide on AnimalNewYork.com.
Then the video for Lana Del Rey’s latest single “National Anthem” hit the web today which features A$AP as a young black JFK. The label must have spent a ton of dough on this. Word is that Del Rey herself is the brains behind the concept acting as a version of Jackie O.
Additionally, we finally get a full preview of the much talked about “My Bitch” (originally “Ridin’”) which also features Ms. Del Rey. An updated version of the track is due on A$AP’s forthcoming debut album “LiveLoveA$AP.”
