The rapper reveals the news to Pharrell Williams and promises to include him on the record
A$AP Rocky has made a concept album with Danger Mouse.
The rapper revealed the news on Pharrell Williams‘ OTHERTone Beats 1 show.
In an interview with Williams, A$AP Rocky confirmed he had been working with Danger Mouse, the musician, producer and former half of duo Gnarls Barkley along with Cee Lo Green.
“Are you guys going to do a concept album?” Williams asked.
“We kind of already did,” Rocky replied. “Danger Mouse is ill. People don’t appreciate that kind of shit. There’s no lyrics out there. What’s important about this, he told me, ‘yo dude, you bring out a side in me that I need’. And I feel he brings out a side in me. We got records. I can’t wait to let you hear them.”
Keen to be involved with the new project, Williams replied, “Don’t leave me out of this album,” with Rocky responding, “I got you.”
Footage has emerged from the show showing the collaborations, which include Kendrick Lamar on ‘Alright’, A$AP Rocky on ‘Everyday’ and Snoop Dogg on ‘Drop It Like It’s Hot’ droppping in over the course of the night.
Elsewhere, A$AP Rocky is reportedly being sued by a fan following a crowd-surfing incident.
Krystina Clowes is seeking $75,000 (£48,128) for the incident. She claims Young Shabba, another member of the A$AP Mob rap collective, tried to crowd-surf and landed on her, resulting in a fractured spine from which she may never fully recover.
As TMZ reports, although A$AP Rocky wasn’t directly involved, Clowes is claiming that the group’s history of stage-diving makes them all responsible for the accident.
