A$AP Rocky at Creators Project in October (more by Ryan Barkan)
ASAP Rocky

A$AP Rocky, who says he never even heard of Aesop Rock until "people started asking him that," is going on a tour in February and March with Drake and Kendrick Lamar. That tour doesn't include any NYC dates but A$AP Rocky will play his own show at Irving Plaza on February 1. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (12/30) at 10 AM.

In October, A$AP Rocky signed a $3 million record deal with Sony/RCA's Polo Grounds Music, and as Pitchfork points out, that's $1 million more than Drake's deal with Young Money was. He then released his LiveLoveA$AP mixtape which you can grab for free (it was one of Heems' favorite albums of 2011). He's now planning a proper release of the album for early 2012. Check out an interview at HipHopDX for more info on that and lots of other stuff.
