I first met A$AP Rocky in New York last summer and we agreed to make the "Wassup" video together. In about nine months, we’ve seen him go from a barely-known kid to one of the world’s most sought after rappers.
Now that Lana Del Rey's new video for "National Anthem" came out (with a cameo from Rocky as the black JFK), he’s gonna become about 28 million times more famous than he already is.
I called him up today to ask how he’s coping with all these awful things that keep happening to him. The money, the girls, the free clothes, the magazine covers, the sold-out shows, and now the international superstardom. I’m worried about him and how he’s coping with it all. I hope he’s bearing up ok.
