Exclusive in-depth interview with ASAP Rocky. Part 1 starts with Rocky talking to Nick Huff Barili about the growth from his first mixtape LiveLoveA$AP to his upcoming album LongLiveASAP (which we are told got pushed back again). Asap Rocky addresses fans and blogs that have an issue with him collaborating with main stream rappers on his new song Fuckin Problem Feat. Drake, Kendrick Lamar & 2 Chainz. As the interview continues Rocky clarifies that both his Mother and Father named him after Rakim and that he grew up with both parents and both played a big role in his development. Rocky spit a verse from his favorite Rakim track: Know the Ledge. Asked if we can expect a track with Rakim on the new album, he responds that collaborating with him, Kanye, Drake, Kendrick, SchoolBoy Q, etc is what is expected from him and he doesn’t want to do anything that is expected on his first album. Part 1 of the interview ends with Rocky talking about directing, producing, why he hasn’t collaborated with Cam’Ron yet and Dipset’s influence on his music (but not as much on his fashion).
