Watch: A$AP Rocky - Jukebox Joints
Rocky and friends hit the diner.
The video for A$AP's Kanye West-produced single Jukebox Joints - off of his most recent LP At.Long.Last.A$AP - has dropped - albeit without the Kanye verse. A$AP co-directed the clip with Shomi Patwary and AWGE. The warm tune finds an equally as soulful home in a retro-style 1950s diner, where the Harlem rapper and his squad sip shakes and gather 'round the Jukebox. We then head out with Rocky for a wander through the NYC streets - he calls into a hairdresser, a house party, and the subway, and the video begins to take on a similar, tripped-out aesthetic to Rocky's LSD video clip, which found A$AP wandering through a loose-looking Tokyo.
"I think the world challenges me to stay sane," A$AP told Rolling Stone not long ago, "I just feel like my biggest challenge is doing things the new way. The smart way. Be responsible." We're not quite sure what creating a whole album influenced by psychedelic drug use has to do with being responsible, but we'll just have to take Rocky's word for it.

ASAP recently performed a two-song medley of L$D and Jukebox Joints, backed by The Roots, on The Tonight Show. The performance began with Rocky laying in bed before rising up to rap amongst psychedelic lighting and smoke. Watch below:
