A$AP Rocky Covers Complex’s December 2012/January 2013 Issue; Speaks On His Debut Album, Fashion & More

It has been a little over a year, since Harlem’s rapper and fashion trendsetter A$AP Rocky signed his $3 million deal with Pologronds/RCA Records. His Long.Live.A$AP and A$AP Mob mixtapes shook up the industry and showed the world that a new generation of trill kids are destined to become the next big thing in rap. Hard work beats talent any day and all of Rocky’s hard work is paying off. He is covering the December/January issue of Complex magazine. Inside his cover story, Rocky speaks about his upcoming debut album, future plans of running a label, and being a fashion trendsetter. This issue officially hits newsstands December 4. Below are some highlights.

You’re about to drop Long.Live.A$AP. That’s a big deal. What are you most excited about?
I’m most excited about finally unleashing this album that I’ve imprisoned for the past year. It’s begging to be free and rejoiced by the world. It’s some trill shit. It’s some real smoking weed, struggling, some real motherfuckers-is-coming-for-my-head, some real this-is-how-I-feel, this-is-how-you-feel shit.

People are always focused on an artist’s first week sales. With so much riding on your debut are you concerned?
Fuck no. ’Cause if I start being concerned about that shit I’m going to fail. I can’t be concerned with that. Hopefully God will make it so. I’ll do good. What does first week sales mean when Robin Thicke, who ended up doing nothing first week, goes double-platinum? The music industry is nothing like how it used to be. Everything’s different now.

It seems that you’re committed to building the success of the A$AP Mob. Do you think you’ll ever be ready to be a label head?
I hope so, ’cause I would fuck the industry up. I would open the door for all the trill motherfuckers that need that shot. West Coast niggas, southern niggas, New York niggas, midwest niggas, fucking European London niggas that I met, fucking French people. Not just on some A$AP Rocky-sounding shit—I’m talking about people who deserve a shot. And motherfuckers don’t want to give it to them ’cause it’s underground shit.

The Odd Future comparisons have gone away.
Thank God. It was just because we were a group. They were out first. I came out with a group. We’re all into the same shit. They wear Supreme, we like Supreme. It was silly shit. We’re nothing alike, when you think about it.

Do you think any of hip-hop’s fashion greats are influencing more people than you?
Hmm…no.

Do you think you’re influencing people like Kanye?
Of course. That’s obvious. [Laughs.] We’re all in the same circle. He’s way richer than me, but of course he’s influenced by me. C’mon, bro. I made waxed denim cool in hip-hop. Fucking waxed denim and rips in jeans. Nobody else did that. I don’t give a fuck. I didn’t know what I was doing. These jeans are Balmain, and I wear them with a Supreme jacket. Of course I’m influencing.

Nene Leakes Credits Herself & “We Are The Only Brown Girls” For The Success ‘RHOA’

Don’t we love the new season of RHOA? The first two episodes have been really good. This season premiere was the most watched show in Bravo’s network history. In a recent interview with The Insider, Nene mentioned that the show does so well because of herself and because they are the only “brown girls.” Nene does a great job at branding herself. Watch her interview below:

In the…’Real Housewives’ franchise, we are the only brown girls,” said Nene. “You can always turn on the TV and see those Beverly Hills girls, those Miami girls, those New Jersey girls, [and] New York girls and you still sort of…get the same flavor, but when you turn and see the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta,’ you’re getting a group of brown girls.”

Nene added that women on RHOA are “super entertaining and “fabulous.” “With us, we’re not so plastic surgery,” she said. “[On] these other franchises, everybody’s so plastic…We’re just regular girls. We’re really keeping it real, and I’m always surprised when people say, ‘Are you guys scripted?’ We’re so not scripted; we’re just a disaster.”

Lauryn Hill Speaks On Why She Hasn’t Replied To Wyclef Rumors & Recites The Lyrics To “Black Rage”

It is my opinion to say that Lauryn Hill is the greatest female rapper of all times. She influenced a lot of young girls around the world, opened up the doors and set a higher standard for female artists. Her 1998’s album, The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill was a major success. It debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200, sold over 423,000 copies in its first week and sold more than 19 million copies worldwide.

Back in September, Hill’s former Fugees bandmate Wyclef Jean made headlines when he released his autobiography, entitled Purpose. In the book, Wyclef claimed that Hill tricked him into believing that her first baby was his up until the child’s birth. Wyclef also talked negative and spread rumors about Hill’s relationship with her former longtime lover Rohan Marley and the Fugees. He also called Hill crazy and bi-polar. During a recent stop in Dallas, Texas on her ‘Life Is Good/Black Rage’ tour with Nas, Hill subliminally explained why she hasn’t replied to Wyclef rumors and she also recited the lyrics to “Black Rage”. Watch below:
