A$AP Rocky on New Album: "All My Pain Was Sacrificed for This. This Is a Revolution"

A$AP Rocky played his first hometown show since February when he performed at New York's Catalpa Festival last weekend, just across the river from his hometown of Harlem. You've already seen our exclusive photo gallery from his evening at the festival, but Fuse caught up with the rapper himself to discuss his upcoming debut album LongLiveA$AP, his UK documentary and why he loved the recent photoshoot for his tour with Danny Brown and Schoolboy Q. (Spoiler alert: he likes breasts.) 

On LongLiveA$AP: "There was a lot of blood, sweat and tears put into this project. For the most part, I'm very happy, but I've never been in this much pain in my life. All my pain was devoted and sacrificed for this whole project. This is the most passionate thing that I ever did…There's nothing out that's going to be compatible to what I'm about to put out with this [album]. Nobody's project is going to be touching this because it's not just hip hop. This is a revolution. This is a start of something new.”

On A$AP Mob: "We releasing the ASAP Mob album in a week now. It's going to be crazy because they don’t really know what the whole ASAP Mob is capable of.”

On his upcoming film project: “I’m working on a documentary for London. It’s going to come on the news, primetime television. They support me." 

On this picture: That photo shoot was cool because I had a handful of t*tties and s**t."

On Danny Brown: He's the new Ol' Dirty Bastard.

On his upcoming tour: If you into some punk rock sh*t, you gonna f*ck with us.  If you into some backpack sh*t, you gonna f*ck with us. If you into some old school ‘90s sh*t, you gonna f*ck with us. If you into some gnarly melodic sh*t, you gonna f*ck with us. And that’s all that matters.
