At a recent private showcase, A$AP Rocky sat down with Revolt to expound why he has so much love for his soon-to-be tour-mate, Tyler, the Creator. His response was in line with what we’ve come to expect from the creative.
I f*ck with Tyler’s whole movement. His aesthetic, what he does. He directs his own videos, produces his own beats, designs his clothes. He ran his crew for awhile, ran companies and stuff like that. And I mean, just being a fellow artist I respect that.
Rocky went on to wish for the widespread respect of art in hip-hop, for a reverence of “substance” he believes to be missing. The Harlem artist also touched on the recording process of “Electric Body,” his latest collaboration with close friend ScHoolboy Q, who he jokingly referred to as a “fool” and an “old-ass man.”
