Watch A$AP Rocky On Fallon

Last night, A$AP Rocky went on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to play “Goldie,” a performance where Rocky never seems to get comfortable. That’s probably because he’s focusing so hard on the many new lyrics of the swear-free version of “Goldie.” Thing is, the censor didn’t get them all! Watch the performance below. More »

Øyafestivalen 2012 In Photos

A$AP Rocky – “Purple Kisses” (NSFW)

In his self-directed video for “Purple Kisses,” a song from the forthcoming A$AP Mob group mixtape Lord$ Never Worry, crew leader A$AP Rocky enjoys his time as the sole dude in a drugged-out orgy, and the general lack of punches pulled makes this one very, very NSFW. The song’s hook is a screwed-up sample of… More »

A$AP Rocky – “Pussy Money Weed”

Just last week, we started things off with “Bath Salt,” the first single from A$AP Rocky and A$AP Mob’s forthcoming group album. This week, we’ve got a brand-new A$AP Rocky track, though we don’t know if it’ll end up on the A$AP Mob album or what. This one has the wonderfully generic title “Pussy Money… More »

A$AP Rocky Covers “Pumped Up Kicks”

Today, A$AP Rocky did a live session for Zane Lowe’s BBC1 Radio show, where he played a rendition of his single “Goldie.” But luckily enough, for all of us, that wasn’t it! He also covered “Pumped Up Kicks.” He doesn’t know many of the words, though if I had to guess “Which critically-approved rapper i… More »

A$AP Rocky – “Bath Salt” (Feat. A$AP Ant & Flatbush Zombies)

For a while now, A$AP Rocky has been promising a new compilation album from his A$AP Mob crew. That album is apparently still in the works, and last night, they posted the bloodthirsty first single. It’s called “Bath Salts,” and it brings Rocky and his crew’s Baltimore affiliate A$AP Ant together with Flatbush Zombies, the… More »

Pitchfork Festival 2012: Dirty Projectors, ASAP Rocky, Purity Ring & More

Friday’s first day of Pitchfork Festival wasted no time getting into it, where many festival entrants walked in to the fully-wrought hypnotic swirl of Lower Dens, a set that eventually gave way to the raucous appearance of the ASAP Mob, all before dinner time. Once again, one of the country’s most manageable, well-paced festivals hit… More »

The Kickdrums – “Ridin'” (Feat. ASAP Rocky & Lana Del Rey)

Lana and Rocky hook up again for “Ridin’,” a collaboration that was originally on production duo the Kickdrums’ last mixtape but was later scrubbed so Rocky could consider it for his debut LP. Now, it rides again. Listen below. More »

Lana Del Rey – “National Anthem” Video (Feat. ASAP Rocky)

We’ve already seen the extended trailer for Lana Del Rey’s “National Anthem,” which features ASAP Rocky as John F. Kennedy and LDR as some sort of Jackie Kennedy/Marilyn Monroe hybrid. And now we’ve got the full eight-minute video for the transcendently dumb song, which is everything you’d expect. And the video, through good performances and… More »

Lana Del Rey – “National Anthem” Video Trailer (Feat. ASAP Rocky)

Here’s the trailer for Lana Del Rey’s forthcoming “National Anthem” video, a clip that features Lana and ASAP Rocky in the roles they were born to play: LDR as Jackie O and ASAP as a BLVCK SCVLE-clad JFK.

Usher – “Hot Thing” (Feat. ASAP Rocky)

If early looks are any indication, Usher’s new record, Looking 4 Myself — his first since 2010’s Raymond V Raymond — will drop next week with its eye focused on the Billboard charts. We’ve already heard the climbing, Diplo-produced burner “Climax” but now we’ve got another glimpse of Looking 4 Myself, this time the Neptunes-produced… More »

ASAP Rocky – “Brand New Guy” (Feat. ScHoolboy Q) Video

Here’s the clip for ASAP Rocky and Schoolboy Q’s LiveLoveA$AP collaboration “Brand New Guy,” a steely street diary that finds the ASAP Mob and the TDE representative Q rolling around NYC. It’s a little less memorable than their last team-up. Watch it below. More »

Waka Flocka Flame – “Pretty Gordo” Freestyle

We got the first glimpse of Waka Flocka’s spin on A$AP Rocky’s “Pretty Flacko” when Flocka exploded on stage with it at Rocky’s February NYC gig. Over the weekend Flocka posted the track effectively steals it from Rocky. Watch it, if you want to get pretty hyped up, below. More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

This happens to be a great week for the low-budget video, full of immediate grainy cinematography and big cheap ideas and strong visual sensibilities. For whatever reason, it’s been especially great for energetic rap videos. I loved the offerings from Big K.R.I.T. and Big Baby Gandhi, but I couldn’t find room for either one o… More »

Swizz Beatz – “Street Knock” Video (Feat. ASAP Rocky)

Swizz Beatz and ASAP Rocky are both magnetic music-video screen presences, and both of them show dangerous amounts of charisma in the video for “Street Knock,” their feverish new AraabMuzik-produced collab. But neither one really emerges as the star of the video. Instead, the best moment belongs to deposed NBA superstar and cult hero Alle… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Kanye West’s new video for “Lost In The World” is being positioned as a collaboration with a filmmaker rather than a “music video,” and that’s good, since it’s a pretty shitty music video. If there’s a sure bet in music videos, it’s Mr. West, who tends to have a ton more vision and audacity tha… More »

ASAP Rocky – “Goldie” Video (NSFW)

This morning, ASAP Rocky dropped the video for his swollen, turtle-moving Hit Boy-produced single “Goldie,” and all ASAP videos are pretty much immediate must-watch situations. This one has Rocky driving around Paris while resting his feet on the door of an extravagantly expensive convertible, which can’t be all that safe. It also has lots and… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: April 2012

It’s the last week of April, and so it is time for a look back at the month’s best free MP3s that also happen to work well as a single, sequenced mix. This zip file finds the common ground between Purity Ring and ASAP Rocky, has a heart of new wave compliments of Psychobuildings and… More »
