Watch: A$AP Rocky – Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye 2 (LPFJ2)
It's Flacko season.
Last night Harlem MC A$AP Rocky conducted a pretty interesting no-holds-barred Q & A session on his new Tumblr. During the session he covered everything from how A$AP Yams’ family was coping following A$AP’s death, how he’s tired of playing Multiply, to his thoughts on HAIM and Iggy Izalea, and the possibilities of working with ScHoolboy Q again.
Q: A$AP Rocky, on a scale of 1 – 10, how awesome would you say you are?
A: MAYBE A 7 OR 8. I'M REALLY A PIECE OF SHIT THO. SO MAYBE 4.
He also unleashed the visuals to accompany Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye 2. Rocky said in the Q & A of the clip: “I wanted to make a fun lo-fi video using projectors and showcasing that fun energy” – indeed, the clip, directed by Samantha Lecca, uses lo-fi footage of Rocky projected across various buildings and parties in NYC. A$AP and his crew then hit the Laundromat for some boozing and thugging, before the clip rounds out with a nice tribute to ASAP Yams (“Always strive and prosper. Rest in peace A$AP Yams.”). Rocky’s set to release ALLA soon, a follow-up to 2013's Long.Live.A$AP. The forthcoming album is executive produced by Juicy J, Danger Mouse, and the late Yams.
