Want to know how the hell A$AP Rocky keeps those gnashers so damn clean? Or how last Saturday’s Miss Fat Booty performance with Mos Def went down? What about how the loss of close friend and collaborator A$AP Yams shaped his music making?
Last week, hip hop’s Harlem renaissance man A$AP Rocky sat down for a heart-to-heart with i-D’s music editor Hattie Collins to deliver his Red Bull Music Academy lecture.
The event was live streamed here on Huck and readers could tweet #AskRocky for a chance to have their burning questions answered at the end of the lecture. If you missed the live stream, you can catch the best bits in this highlight video.
Having spent the better part of two years straddling the Atlantic between NYC and LDN while recording his sophomore album, this is just the beginning of Rocky’s dialogue with RBMA. He’ll be continuing the conversation by hosting a second public lecture onMay 7 in Harlem, with “a surprise or two along the way.”
The 2015 edition of Red Bull Music Academy kicks of in early Autumn, but until then the RBMA squad will be criss-crossing the globe, bringing their lectures, ‘experiential audio events’, and parties with them.
