Meeting A$AP Rocky
SpaceGhostPurrp: “[We met after we] reached out to each other. He put out ‘Purple Swag’ in like July 2011 and I saw the video. It’s crazy cause Miami niggas, we got love for Harlem niggas. I've never even been to Harlem but we fuck with Harlem niggas. When Harlem niggas come to Miami, we ain't gonna do grimy shit to them, we’re gonna show them love.
“We reached out to each other on Facebook and he wrote me, ‘Man, you dope.’ I wrote back like, ‘You too man. I fuck with you and everything you’re doing.’ We met up in New York, I introduced him to Juicy J, and we did a show.
I told Rocky, I want you to perform with me. I didn’t need him out there. So we get on stage, we both got paid that night... A$AP and Raider Klan, Raider Klan and A$AP.
“I met up with the owner of Santos Party House in NYC and he said he liked my music. He said, ‘I wanna do a show and make history out here.’ I said, ‘Let’s do it.’ I told Rocky, I want you to perform with me. I didn’t need him out there. So we get on stage, we both got paid that night. Santos got more popping. A$AP and Raider Klan, Raider Klan and A$AP.
“If somebody say, ‘Well, we heard you on ‘Purple Swag,’ wasn’t you with them? Why do you wear all black?’ I'm gonna go turn on ‘Rath of a Raider’ and I'm gonna say, ‘This shit came out before I hopped on ‘Purple Swag.’ Listen to the lyrics.’
“They’re gonna go listen to the lyrics and then they are gonna look at why I got on all black and the tattoo on my chest. They’re gonna say, ‘I feel where you’re coming from, bro. You’re not a wannabe. You’re hurt, you went through shit in your life and what you’re doing has a meaning behind it.’”÷
