(AllHipHop News) The world will soon have the chance to get a closer look into the life of A$AP Rocky. A video crew trailed the Harlem rapper during his run opening for Rihanna’s “Diamonds Tour.” The footage from that trek has inspired the 5-part documentary SVDDXNLY.
The film will also feature other A$AP Mob members, Rihanna, Drake, and Snoop Dogg. SVDDXNLY (pronounced “Suddenly”) was produced and directed by David Lavin.
“[A$AP Rocky's] been on a rapid rise, and it’s kind of the thing about the film title it may not be so straightforward, but he rose to fame overnight,” Lavin told THR. “Literally, two days in… Rocky was just like, ‘Can you guys just stay with us the whole tour?’ We came back and started editing, and this seven-minute piece we were going to make turned into an hour-long film.”
Fans will be able to get a preview of Rocky’s forthcoming instrumental album Beauty & The Beast: Slowed Down Sessions (Chapter 1) via the documentary as well. The creator of Long. Live. ASAP describes his sample-free next musical project as “how music is supposed to sound.”
SVDDXNLY will run on Noisey starting August 5. Watch the trailer below.
