Gravitas. Sharp comedic timing. Did we mention, gravitas? Rocky's speech has it all, and more. We're not sure what his role is in this outfit of powerful men, what they sell, and how it is that this crew got there, but one thing cannot be denied: Rakim Mayers, a.k.a. A$AP Rocky, led them there. You want to talk range? He has acres of it.
In a poignant moment that can go criminally unnoticed on a first viewing, Rocky emotes a rich yet understated display of concern for his friend. He deftly, subtly points to Drake and then puts his champagne down to give the beleaguered man the attention that fateful phone call deserves. No, Rocky, you know what takes a lot of balls and a lot of heart? Your performance.
