Our February/March cover boy A$AP Rocky catches up with Fuse in an interview at SXSW. One thing they jumped into right away is the name of A$AP’s album, which is not A$AP Rocky Forever but Long. Live. A$AP. He also said that the A$AP Mob mixtape is scheduled to release in May, while his debut album is slated for July 4. To compliment the trill raps of Pretty Flacko, the usual suspects are featured on the production side, including A$AP Ty Beats, Clams Casino, Beautiful Lou, SpaceGhostPurrp, as well as Pharrell.
Adding to the debate of Action Bronson and Schoolboy Q not featured on XXL’s Freshman cover, readers have also questioned why A$AP was absent from the lineup. The Harlem rapper also addresses that topic, and calls the list "corny." Watch what he had to say about the final class picks.
