A$AP Rocky has revealed that he worked with Kanye West on his new album 'Yeezus'.

The Harlem rapper does not appear on the final version of the album - which went straight to Number One in the UK upon its release in June and features guest spots from Frank Ocean and Bon Iver. However, he has revealed in an interview with NME that he visited Kanye in the studio. "He's a great artist, so working with him was a blessing," says Rocky in this week's magazine, available digitally and on newsstands now. "I went to his studio at his house. His new shit is really revolutionary. He's on some Lord God revolutionary black slave shit."

Speaking about his own album, 'LongLiveA$AP', Rocky reveals how he celebrated after the record went to the top of the US charts. "I shed a few tears on the night I found out it was Number One. It was about a month after my Dad died and I was emotional," he says. "I had a good night that night. I fucked a very popular pop artist from Great Britain. I'm not saying shit, I'll leave the guessing to you. It sounds really silly but when you got four bad French chicks naked in your jacuzzi, just waiting for you with champagne flutes it's like, 'Damn, I'm not even from France!' I don't speak any French but they spoke A$AP."

A$AP Rocky returns to the UK this weekend where he will perform at London's Wireless Festival on Sunday (July 14) alongside Jessie Ware, A Tribe Called Quest and headliners Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake.
