The Red Bull Music Academy Festival will be back in New York City for the month of May to bring a series of workshops, lectures and live performances with some of music’s finest. This year, A$AP Rocky will be apart of one of the main festivities.
For “A Conversation With A$AP Rocky,” Flacko will sit down with Jeff “Chairman” Mao to discuss his influences in music and fashion and how he became one hip-hop’s acclaimed artists. The event will take place on May 7th. Tickets have not gone on sale yet.
The Harlemnite has been having a rocky 2015 so far. In January, his best friend and A$AP Mob co-founder A$AP Yams passed away. Then weeks later, he turned heads at the Sundance Music Festival after his appearance in the film, Dope. He’s currently working on his sophomore album, which will be executive produced by Juicy J.
