A$ AP Mob co-founder A$ AP Bari would probably do great on “Deal or No Deal” … after scoring a hell of a deal in his drug case. The Northampton County D.A.’s Office in Pennsylvania tells TMZ … the rapper recently showed up to court and pled…
A$ AP Rocky might be one of the few artists left in the game whose music videos grab your attention and hold on to it until the screen goes black.
His latest clip to “Tony Tone” continues that trend as we see A$ AP Rocky in different situations and places such as standing in front of an all white council with his crew to rolling deep through the ave while on a bike and flossing a neck chock full of ice.
On another side of town Janelle Monae gets her girl power on and rolls to a soiree with her girls in a drop top whip in the clip to “Crazy, Classic, Life.”

It’s been a great year for Travis Scott on both the personal and professional fronts and from the looks of things he’s not going to be letting up anytime soon.
In his clip to “Yosemite,” Travis continues to give his fans cinematic type visuals as he finds himself flying high (both literally and, well, literally) while a young child falls from the sky and travels a jungle where the natives welcome him with open arms.
Not to be left behind, A$ AP Rocky stars in a wild clip to the Juicy J featured which features everything from crash test dummies to white folks having sexual relations in the kitchen. Can’t say we’ve ever seen a Hip-Hop video quite like this before.

Just when you thought that the mannequin challenge was officially dead and gone, A$ AP Rocky decided to resurrect the internet trend from a few years ago for his latest video.
In his visuals to “Sundress,” Pretty Flacko hits up the club where everyone in attendance is seemingly frozen in time and he finds himself starring down the barrel of a gun. Gunners are apparently immune from the mannequin challenge.

EA Sports is bringing the most prominent names sports and music together with the FIFA 19 World Tour to take on each other in its uber-popular soccer video game franchise FIFA 19.
Today the video game company kicked off the FIFA 19 World Tour with the help of Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard, Grime artist Stormzy and comedian, rapper and actor Michael Dapaah aka Big Shaq. The first stop on tour takes us across the pond to London where we see the four take on each other in a no rules game of FIFA 19’s Kick Off mode.
Following London, EA will take the electronic version of The World’s Game to these other stops around the globe featuring these big names:
- Odell Beckham Jr vs. A$ AP Rocky in New York City
- Maluma vs. Martin Garrix in Rio, Brazil
- Kimpembe, Meunier, Niska, Alonso in Paris
- Liam Payne, Christian Pulisic, Marco Reus and more in Dortmund
For the first installment, Stormzy who has bragged about his FIFA skills was definitely getting the side-eye from the “Mans Not Hot” creator Big Shaq cause they definitely got their tails handed to them. In their defense, though they did take on two professional soccer players, so it’s quite understandable why they caught an L.
Regardless the match made for some hilarious banter between them we are looking forward to the other videos from the other tour stops. You can watch Stormzy, and Big Shaq gets schooled in FIFA 19 below.

This time around the rap stars are Joey Bada$ $ , A$ AP Ferg and Powers Pleasant (no “$ ” in his name), the video is “Pull Up,” and the palce is Tokyo, Japan. Getting their fast and furious on, the three rappers enjoy Tokyo’s city lights and underground Hip-Hop scene.

The finale of Complex x Fuse airs tonight Wednesday, February 21st at 11pm ET / PT on Fuse.
G-Eazy may not be on everyone’s radar but judging from his latest video he’s trying like f*ck to get your attention.
In his clip to “No Limit Remix” the white kid from Oaktown unites an impressive cast of Hip-Hop all-stars in A$ AP Rocky, French Montana, Juicy J, Belly and 2017 rookie of the year Cardi B to help him turn up at an underground party and steal the show.

In his visuals to the October London assisted “Go On” that much is evident as the Doggfather throws a pool party where it seems like anyone over 35 isn’t allowed unless it’s Snoop himself of course.
Meanwhile over in UK Skepta is joined by A$ AP Rocky and A$ AP Nast in his clip to “Ghost Ride” which features some old school gritty cinematography reminiscent of our beloved Video Music Box days.

At the end of the day everyone loves themselves a comfortable bed, but A$ AP Ferg and A$ AP Rocky might have an obsession with mattresses.
For Ferg’s A$ AP Rocky’s assisted clip to “The Matress” the Harlem mob boys make the most of every matress they come by from the abandoned one in the alley to the high priced joints in a Mattress Firm. We wonder how much they had to pay to hop on those beds all night long.
Back on the Left Coast YG calls for the release of Meek Mill and takes to the streets to have his voice heard while showcasing his 4Hunnid Fall/Winter 17 clothing line in his clip to “Free Meek.”

It’s been just a few days since Meek Mill got sentenced to an unjustified and unnecessary bid, but until he begins to serve it (hopefully he won’t) we should just enjoy whatever material drops with his name on it.
Today we get blessed with a Meek Mill appearance on A$ AP Ferg’s “Trap And A Dream” where the two share some good times on the streets of Harlem where they stunt in a Rolls in front of the projects.
Keeping things Uptown, Chris Rivers details the domestic abuse he witnessed his legendary father, Big Pun commit when he was growing up in his black-and-white clip to “Fear Of My Crown.”

A$ AP Rocky and Playboi Carti’s popularity these days are what most rappers dream of having so it’s only right the two link up and give their fans something to bump for the summer ’17.
In the visuals to “New Choppa” the two get their How High on and zone out to an informercial featuring themselves and some bikini-clad women testing out some automatic rifles at a firing range. Bet them conservatives re-thinking that 2nd amendment right about now.
Back in the Boogie Down Bronx representatives Don Q and A Boogie link up and put it down for the borough in the visuals to “Protect Ya Patek” where they go from splurging on some high end diamond time pieces to burning rubber in a high speed car chase. Just another day in the birthplace of Hip-Hop.

A$ AP Ferg’s been making some big boy moves for the past few months now but that doesn’t mean he’s abandoning the music game nor forgetting where he comes from.
In his clip to “Nandos” the A$ AP Mob member takes it to an abandoned inner city school where some kids skateboard the empty halls and Ferg promotes his upcoming adidas collabo. Who says he can’t multitask?
Meanwhile back in Brooklyn Joey Bada$ $ cruises the streets in a spiffy droptop Mercedes for his visuals to “500 Benz.” In 2017 that retro everything is a good look if you can pull it off.

Gotta love it when rappers get nostalgic with their visuals and remind everyone of simpler days.
That’s the route that D.R.A.M. went in his A$ AP Rocky and Juicy J assisted visuals to “Gilligan” where they take today’s sexually charged norms and use it to shock the conservative way of life of the 1960’s. Lord, how times have changed.

Joey Bada$ $ ’s been securing that bag as of late but that isn’t changing up how the man goes about his life.
In “Temptation” the Brooklyn rapper takes it back to the hood with retro cinematography which showcases how life in the struggle is for those who aren’t blessed with the glitz and glamor of fame. But they’re rich in family and sometimes that’s more than enough.

A$ AP Rocky isn’t keen on settling. Especially in the case of his former manager Geno Sims, who says the Harlem rap star swindling him out of a cool $ 850,000 during the course of their working relationship.
In new documents obtained by The Jasmine Brand, the 27-year-old personality (real name Rakim Mayers) is countersuing Sims, alleging that Sims breached their contract by disclosing information about his finances, personal life and his business to others.
Rocky also attributes any confusion as to what Sims claims he’s owed to the new negotiation they reached when the PMF brought in a second manager circa 2011 to help with his burgeoning celebrity. He says the paperwork filed at the time of Sims’ termination in 2014 explicitly states he wouldn’t be giving him one more red cent.
It appears this issue will be heading to court in the near future.

Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2016 was lit with who’s who’s yesterday thanks to the Vogue 95th Anniversary Party.

Emmanuelle Alt, the editor-of-chief of the longstanding publication, is being showered with praise for not throwing a snobbish snooze fest as she reportedly told the famous attendees, “All I wanted to do tonight was have a big party.

A$ AP Rocky is a Samsung man. In a new commercial, Lord Pretty Flacko is deciding whether to go with the Galaxy S6 edge+ or the Galaxy Note5.
For A$ AP Rocky, deciding whether to get down to business with the S Pen on the Galaxy Note5 or hit up VIPs with the Galaxy S6 edge+ People Edge is a tough choice. See what he chooses, then head over here to learn more about The Next Big Thing: smsng.us/1J1DM4E
Watch the full spot below. Check out behind the scenes photos from the commercial’s shoot on the flip.
A$ AP Rocky also says people need to be less serious.
Samsung has repeatedly told you that “The Next Big Thing” is already here and the prestigious company is set to release the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy Note5 on August 21 to live together in technological matrimony.
Last night (August 18), West Hollywood was transformed into a star-studded celebration for plenty of Samsung ambassadors ahead of the new product rollout.
DJ M.O.S. warmed up the crowd with Hip-Hop freshness from new and old as Chrissy Teigen (fresh off her viral ad), Jamie Foxx, Tyrese, Russell Simmons, Wesley Snipes, Demi Levato, apl.de.ap and Aldis Hodge (coming Straight Outta Compton), among others enjoyed an open bar and the atmosphere.
Elsewhere, technical newlyweds Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade treated their Los Angeles rendezvous like a date night and planned an one-year anniversary vacation.
Midway through the night, A$ AP Rocky–alongside A$ AP Twelvy–took the center stage for a surprise performance and ran through three albums worth of material with hits like “M’s”, “Wassup”, “Goldie”, “Electric Body” and “Everyday.” Seeing that power of the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ was at his disposal, he allowed fans to use the phone to choose his swan song. Of course they chose his “favorite” track, “F**king Problems.”
Check out the sights and scenes from the actual “Next Big Thing” party down below. For more information on the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy Note5, visit their official website.

"These niggas been on the West Coast too long," A$ AP Rocky says, "and these niggas wanna smoke too much."
(AllHipHop News) On his latest album At.Long.Last.A$ AP, A$ AP Rocky managed to get veteran emcee Yasiin Bey to return to his roots and perform under the name Mos Def. The man born Dante Smith dropped the Mos Def moniker in 2012, and he had not done much musical work since that time.
A.L.L.A. features Mos on the the closing cut “Back Home.” A$ AP Rocky spoke with DJ Whoo Kid about collaborating with the Brooklyn legend.
“He was Mos Def when he was rapping. He wasn’t Yasiin Bey,” said Rocky. “Mos is an artist. Mos will start rapping for no reason.”
The A$ AP Mob member also talked about his experiences doing drugs with Wiz Khalifa. Wiz claimed Rocky ran away from a “blunt challenge” which led Rocky to address his rap peer’s accusations.
“I don’t know what’s wrong with Wiz, and I don’t know what’s wrong with Snoop [Dogg]. I don’t know what’s wrong with Chris Brown and all these n*ggas. These n*ggas been on the West Coast too long and these niggas want to smoke too much,” Rocky stated.
According to Rocky, he told the Taylor Gang leader he would go blunt for blunt, but Wiz responded that he does not smoke blunts, only papers. While Rocky admitted he had trouble handling Wiz’s dab, the “L$ D” rapper got Wiz back when he got him to do mushrooms for the first time.
“Since he put me on blast for being a punk cause I couldn’t take the dab – even though that was three years ago – that’s cool. Now I gotta put him on blast,” added Rocky. “I give him the shrooms. We go to the after-party. Your man is leaning. He’s like, ‘Oh sh*t, I see it now man. I feel it. You see the light right there, it’s f*cking bending.’”

Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye’s sophomore album, At.Long.Last.A$ AP, is in stores June 2.
The biggest story going into A$ AP Rocky’s sophomore album At.Long.Last.A$ AP is that the Hip-Hop superstar will have to do it without his right-hand man, A$ AP Yams.
The 26-year-old rap mogul-in-the-making passed away in January from an accidental overdose of drugs including opiates and benzodiazepine (a.k.a. syrup) and was said to be the man who brought the A$ AP Mob together.
Well the young Harlemnite has forever immortalized his friend on the At.Long.Last.A$ AP album cover which depicts Sir Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye facepalming with his fingers covered in audacious rings and an image of Yams watching over him.
In a recent interview with Billboard, Rocky admitted to being influenced by a multitude of non-Hip-Hop entities such as Portishead, Massive Attack, Thom Yorke, The Kinks and The Stooges. He still maintained that his new LP would be rooted in Hip-Hop but his latest single “Everyday” featured the eclectic talents of Miguel and Rod Stewart (of all people) so the expansion and experimentation is evident already.
The At.Long.Last.A$ AP album cover can be seen below. It will now be released on June 2.

Stage diving and crowd surfing are an essential part of any A$ AP Mob live experience. According to TMZ, the young rap collective have been slapped with a lawsuit for doing so.
The group is being sued by a woman who attended their concert at the Fonda Theater in Hollywood back in 2013. Tammy Nguyen claims she was a VIP at the show when A$ AP Mob took the stage at around 11PM. There was lots of crowd surfing during the evening, but it really intensified.
She says A$ AP members, including Darold Ferguson, Jr. — better known as A$ AP Ferg — were diving in the crowd, along with a bunch of fans. When Ferguson jumped, Nguyen says he nailed her. And what’s worse, she says she had to fight her way through the crowd to get out, and security didn’t help.
Ferg and the entire Mob to were named in the suit.
