A$AP Rocky has declared himself the ‘greatest artiste of all time during his performance at Spotify’s Rap Caviar at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City.
The rapper paused in the middle of his performance to let the eventgoers know how he truly feels about himself. “In case ya’ll don’t know, like I said last time, I’m the greatest fuckin’ artist of all-time n****a,” he said.
He continued, “Yeah, I’m on my cocky Kanye shit, whatever the fvck, suck my d!ck with that n***a. I’m the greatest contemporary artist of all-time. Renaissance, contemporary, all that. I need ya’ll n****s to know, all this little razzle dazzle, bum ass shit going on, Flacko Season ’bout to drop real soon.”
Some fans got excited about his bold statement, while people who didn’t find his comments likely booed him before he continued thrilling them.
A$AP’s next album will be his follow up to At.Long.Last.A$AP that dropped in 2015. According to his interview with GQ Style, the forthcoming LP will feature some new sounds.
“My new album is really about testing new sounds,” he told the magazine. “People are scared to test new sounds, so they go with what’s current ’cause it’s the easy thing to do.
“The top 100 songs sound a certain way. People cater more to that because it’s a bigger demographic behind that, or it’s a guaranteed demographic behind that. I prefer to experiment and have my crowd grow with me and to reach new crowds.
“I don’t just rap—I actually make music. That’s why it takes time. These sonics represent me.”
