A$AP Rocky‘s been pretty vocal about his love for UK artists. Having spent a lot of time in London over the last year, hanging out with Skepta, Stormzy and Section Boyz, the A$AP Mob rapper has got a lot of time for grime.
Last night (Mar 11) saw the London launch of Rocky’s GUESS Originals collection. Part of Selfridges was transformed into a 90s teenager’s dream chill-pad, decked out with pinball machines and Pamela Anderson posters to provide the set for live performances from some of the biggest names in rap and grime right now.
The main event saw Section Boyz and A$AP Rocky killing it on stage together. Section Boyz have had a pretty good couple of months, with Drake and Skepta joining them on stage at Village Underground after Drizzy’s Brits performance with Rihanna.
They’re also about to head to Austin, Texas’s SXSW festival where they’ll play an NME showcase gig and with three MOBO awards under their belt already, we predict huge things for the South London boys in 2016.
Watch a clip of Section Boyz performing their massive track Lock Arf below.

Skepta, Stormzy, Maya Jama and Krept were also in attendance at the launch party which saw Rocky and his pals dancing to bangers until the early hours.

From the fashion – a sick collection of ’90s-inspired GUESS pieces make up A$AP Rocky’s line – to the set, our obsession with the all things end of century is definitely here to stay.
