The latest installment of CRWN is finally here, and it stars none other than A$AP Rocky, one of the hottest rappers in hip-hop right now. His sophomore album At.Long.Last.A$AP is right around the corner, and in part 1 of CRWN he talks about being inspired by Kendrick Lamar, Danny Brown, Earl Sweatshirt, and Joey Bada$$.
Rocky also discussed his love for psychedelics, working with Dangermouse and Juicy J, his unreleased instrumental album, and how he feels about rap today.
“Rap is the new wrestling,” said the Harlem rapper. “Make up a weird ass name, just come out saying some outlandish crazy dumb shit, and everybody’s gonna pay attention.”
Watch part 1 of CRWN with A$AP Rocky above, and then watch part 2 right here, where Rocky talks about A$AP Yams, Lil B, Mos Def, and lots more.
