      A$AP Rocky's “Wassup” Video Premiere

      By VICE Staff

      January 23, 2012

      Harlem rap sensation A$AP Rocky just teamed up with global media sensation VICE after a chance meeting with Global Editor Andy Capper at the VICE office in Brooklyn.  Rocky pitched a vision of a video to Andy which took elements from his five favorite movies, namely Scarface, Belly, Enter The Dragon, The Warriors and, of course, Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory.

      Smitten with the idea, Andy and VICE set making the video with one of VICE's most talented DPs, Jacob Burghart (VICE Guide To Congo, Toxic: Garbage Island and many more).
