After making the top of the news and being covered with (true) rumors about his brand new love relationship with the beautiful star Rihanna, ASAP appears in a video clip from Slowthai.
Now, some people may ask themselves, “but, who is Slowthai?”.
Slowthai – from his real name Tyron Frampton – is an emerging rapper from Great Britain. Besides rapping, he tells stories and invents fantastic movie scenarios. His work is an opportunity to bring them to life, notably through his music videos. His stories, brilliantly revisited, have as a backdrop the Brexit, Trump, and the 1%, told in Needles tracksuit sets, with Nike TNs on his feet. In the world of Slowthai, Batman dies, and the Joker survives.
In “Nothing Great About Britain”, he tells the legend of Excalibur and presents himself as a modern-day King Arthur.
Now, let’s talk about this amazing collaboration.
Slowathai got really inspired when he decided to invite ASAP Rocky on his Mazza video clip. He chose to serve us a totally insane and psychedelic scenery full of decadence. We can happily see that ASAP gets a little bit back to his old aestheticism.
« Olive, body shaped like a bottle/Popeye off of spinach/Pop a model ’til she swallow, dropping Tyler off, damn […] Got jokes uptown, Harlem world, New York like I’m Pop Smoke/Riding ‘round in the drop rolls, watching rats in the pot roast/Finger polish with the topcoat, the bottom platinum but the top gold. »
He made a reference to Popeye, another to Tyler, the Creator, a wink to the late Pop Smoke. And, the cherish on the cake, a tribute to the love he has for nail polish.
What does this brand new year have in store for us?
Two years after releasing his controversial project Testing – for many people, he went a little too far concerning the principle of experimentation – who knows if ASAP Rocky won’t come back in 2021 with a brand new one? The EP was criticized by HipHopDX, saying that “Rather than creating a new movement, A$AP Rocky drowned in his ambitions and lost his identity in the process. »
But, to conclude, the main question that everyone has on their minds is whether or not we will see more features from Rocky or better yet, a new album from him in 2021?
And, in bonus, let’s look at the video clip reaction from a Youtuber. Do you also think that he recreated the Playboi Carti vibes?
