A$AP Rocky Dreams of the Glamorous Life in ‘Wassup’ Video
Hot rapper A$AP Rocky has teamed up with Vice magazine to create this NSFW video for his Clams Casino-produced track 'Wassup.' According to the publication, the clip takes its inspiration from such classic films as 'The Warriors,' 'Scarface,' 'Enter the Dragon' and 'Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory.'
We don't see any clear-cut references to 'Willy Wonka' in the NSFW clip, but the visuals are just as sweet as the Wonka's chocolate factory. Directed by Andy Capper, the video features Rocky and his A$AP mob family on a fantasy-filled ride of Cristal-drinking, money-spending, girl-on-girl action and other luxuries with plenty of smoke and mirrors.
One of the more interesting scenes finds the New York rapper bathing himself in $100 bills and showing off his gold-plated grill. "I be that pretty m-----f---er, Harlem's what I'm reppin'" he raps on the chorus, adding "the only thing bigger than my ego is my mirror." We also get to see him flaunt some expensive designs from Raf Simons and his Complex magazine cover buddy Jeremy Scott.
The PopCrush's 2012 Artists to Watch alum is currently working on his debut LP, which will be released on Polo Grounds/RCA Records later this year. The song 'Wassup' appears on Rocky's latest mixtape 'Live.Love.A$AP.'
