Among the young torchbearers of NYCs prestigious rapping tradition, A$AP Rocky’s light shines as one of the brightest. Stepping on to the scene with a fully-formed vision and a mouth full of gold, the charismatic MC’s rapid ascent to style icon has made him the face of Harlem hip hop in the post-Dipset era.
The 7 May conversation with RBMA team member, EgoTrip founder and Harlem resident Chairman Mao will take place at Madiba Harlem at My Image Studios (40 W 116th St, New York, NY 10026). For additional information and link to tickets--on sale now, visit: http://win.gs/rocky
In advance of his appearance, he will join RBMA team member and BBC Radio 1 host Benji B for a Q&A on Wednesday, 8 April at St Pancras Renaissance Hotel in London. The event is part of the Red Bull Music Academy UK Tour and fans across the globe will have the opportunity to tune in to the live video stream online at redbullmusicacademy.com at 6:00 pm BST.
Additionally, Twitter users can submit their questions to @RBMA using the hashtag #AskRocky, before and during the conversation. A few of the best questions will be selected and passed on to Benji B, who will pose them to Rocky towards the end of the lecture.
