A$AP Rocky @ Fun Fun Fun Fest - 11/03/2012
A$AP Rocky @ Fun Fun Fun Fest - 11/03/2012

If A$AP Rocky has anything going for him besides a few internet rap hits and some memorable moments dropping in on his friends' shows, it's that he's already got some pretty far out stories to tell. He recently revealed an interview with Hard Knock TV that he smoked weed with Daft Punk on his tour bus (hopefully in Colorado). Now he just needs to get them to play at his house!

He also declared himself a factor in evolving society's views on homosexuality. "I kicked down the door for kids that's my age, older and younger, to be able to wear Jeremy Scott sneakers, rips in their jeans and not feel gay," Rocky says. Because of him, kids can wear whatever they want and not have to worry about being mistaken for being gay. Yeah, that doesn't sound homophobic at all (it's a start though) (watch the whole thing in the video below - he means well).

He's also taken his fashion to another level, and now has his own limited edition T-shirt line. You can purchase one while supplies last at Karma Loop.

In 2013, he'll be able to add another epic story to his resumé, when he heads out on tour with Rihanna. That tour comes to NYC for the previously discussed show at Barclays Center on May 4, which is sold out, and also hits the same venue one day later (5/5), which tickets are on sale for now. Hopefully Rocky will have his new album, LongLiveA$AP, out by then which he has kept delaying. He's now hoping to get it out during the first quarter of 2013.

As mentioned, you can also catch A$AP Mob with A-Trak at Best Buy Theater on November 29 and A$AP Twelvy at Highline Ballroom on November 22.

A$AP Rocky also just played Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin this past weekend (as did Run DMC). You can check out more pictures from his set (like the one above), the video of that Hard Knock TV interview, and a list of all upcoming tour dates, below....

classic soft bigotry of low expectations in this article with the 'it's a start' comment.

How much does this asshole pay you to keep running press on him?

This guy is just a fucking idiot.

Yeah, because all black males are rappers with gold teeth and narrow-minded views on homosexuality, 3:22. Just like all you "indie" white kids are self-important, pretentious douche-nozzles sucking off whatever shitty new 'band' your stupid blogs tell you to like this week. This right here is why we can't have nice things AT ALL.

STFU and go jack off to the new Yeasayer album, dick-breath. Fuck you.

^ Heh, Yeasayer's so cool.
