A$AP Rocky makes his feature film debut in this summer’s Dope, a coming of age film set in Englewood, California directed by Rick Famuyiwa. Prior to this year’s special CRWN with Elliott Wilson at The Tribeca Film Festival, the Harlem native spoke with WatchLOUD.com’s editor Jerry Barrow and shared his top 5 favorite New York-based films, which include Juice and Above The Rim.
“I feel like most of the kids in my generation don’t even know about half those movies, but they should,” he says.
Pretty Flacko, II also had some strong opinions about a hip-hop cinema classic, Friday, which turns 20 today. Watch the clip to hear who he thinks has to be in the long-rumored Last Friday to make it right.
CRWN with A$AP Rocky and Elliott Wilson premieres this Monday right here on WatchLOUD.com.
