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… 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… 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… 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 lot… More »

ASAP Rocky – “Goldie”

Right after NYC rap station Hot 97 premiered ASAP Rocky's new single, "Goldie," Rocky posted a download link for the track which is, uh, pretty convenient. It's big and braggadocio-heavy, thanks in part to Hit-Boy's production -- that fellow is on fire right now. Download below. More »

Theophilus London & ASAP Rocky – “Big Spender”

ASAP Rocky and Theophilus London recently spent some time in the studio together, and the result of that collaboration is the DJ Carnage-produced "Big Spender." Since it rides a vintage pop hook, it's not unlike another recent ASAP hook up. Stream it below. More »

Preview The Inevitable ASAP Rocky/Lana Del Rey Collab

Well, it's happened. Lana Del Rey and ASAP Rocky are on the same song, and the internet can now explode. Brooklyn production team the KickDrums recruited both controversy-baits for a song called "Ridin'," which has LDR going full-on Betty Boop and Rocky proclaiming Lana to be his "bitch." He is dating Iggy Azalea, so maybe… More »

Watch A$AP Rocky’s SXSW-Closing Brawl

Several Stereogum staffers made it out to Vice's fest-closing Vice Killed Texas showcase, a lineup that featured the particularly resplendent Trash Talk followed by ASAP Rocky and Fidlar. Well, Fidlar, as you might have heard, never quite got the chance as ASAP's set erupted into a throwdown after one beer can too many wa… More »

Watch ASAP Rocky Perform In NYC Last Night

Though much praise has fallen on the lap of Harlem-bred rap upstart ASAP Rocky, last night's show at Irving Plaza was his true coronation as the scene's torchbearer; not only did he keep the stage clear so he could maximize his own performance (he has had trouble with this in the past) plenty… More »

ASAP Rocky – “Wassup” Video (NSFW)

ASAP Rocky inhabits his usual smoked-out aesthetic in the new clip for LIVELOVEA$AP cut "Wassup," albeit this time with a little more cashflow/production values. It's a clip that echoes a lot of rap video cliches, but in his loving and reverential way. NSFW as there are some boobs. Check it below. More »

Schoolboy Q – “Hands On The Wheel” (Feat. ASAP Rocky) Video

We're comfortable stating that we're pretty into that Schoolboy Q record -- Scott totally freaked out about the Genesis sample ("Firth Of Fifth"), in case you were wondering -- so it was exciting to see that one of its standouts, "Hands On The Wheel" got a video treatment. It features that pretty… More »

ASAP Rocky – “Celebration”

Now that he's signed a big record deal and released his ghostly, aquatic mixtape LIVELOVEA$AP, Harlem up-and-comer ASAP Rocky is suddenly sounding happier than we're used to hearing him. On the new track "Celebrate," he's positively triumphal, luxuriating in his success while riding an airy synth. Give it a listen below. More »

ASAP Rocky – “Pretty Flacko”

Two days ago, quarterback Joe Flacco led my motherfucking Baltimore Ravens to a crushing, dominant win over the Cincinnati Bengals, capturing the AFC North title in the process and giving me hope that we'll all be flipping over cars in my hometown in a month or so. I don't know if he's a Ravens fa… More »

ASAP Rocky – “Demons” Video

Harlem rap insurgent ASAP Rocky has already been responsible for "Purple Swag" and "Peso," two of the best and most evocative music videos of the year. His new clip for "Demons," a cloudy-brained Clams Casino collab from his LIVELOVEA$AP mixtape, isn't on the level of those two, but it does work a… More »

Danny Brown – “Blunt After Blunt” Video

Here's something I had to learn to hard way: No matter how much of a stoner you think you are, you should never, under any circumstances, smoke weed with rappers. You just can't handle it; I'm sorry. You will inevitably find yourself rolled into a ball on the carpet, wishing you could remember your ow… More »

ASAP Rocky – “Peso (Star Slinger Refix)”

I'm not sure why Star Slinger keeps tackling songs that are pretty perfect just the way they are, but I admire the kid's moxie. Check out his latest remix, this time a re-configured version of ASAP Rocky's syrupy "Peso," after the jump. More »
