Watch the Livestream of A$AP Rocky’s Red Bull Music Academy Lecture
With spring break in the rearview, the slow march to the end of the school year has begun to take its toll on the world's collective sleep schedules and prescription drug supplies. Students would be forgiven for wanting to skip a lecture here and there, but today (April 8), Red Bull Music Academy is offering one that you might want to pencil in--one from A$AP Rocky himself. At 1 p.m. EST, click here to watch the livestream of Rocky's lecture, which should illuminate more details of his upcoming tour dates and recorded work. Fans can submit questions to ask via Red Bull's twitter (@RBMA) with the hashtag #AskRocky. Next month, the "Pretty Flacko" rapper will be headlining Red Bull's festival in New York.
Though no date has been given, Rocky's second major label album, At.Long.Last.A$AP, is expected out soon. Co-executive produced by Juicy J and the late A$AP Yams, the album's title was reverse engineered as a makeshift acronym for "Allah." The Harlem MC, whose parents named him after Rakim, told GQ, "It's the return of the God MC." Rocky went on to say that the album should distance himself from the kind of singles with which he promoted his debut, namely "Wild for the Night" and "Fuckin' Problems." Speaking of Yams, Rocky recently gave to the New York Times a chilling account of the night his friend and mentor passed away. In addition to his musical endeavors, Rocky has a starring role in Dope, a Rick Famuyiwa-directed film that was snatched up by Sony and Open Road Pictures after a run as a critical darling at Sundance.
