A$AP Rocky is no one-trick-pony. The Harlem rapper– still riding high off the success of his 2012 LP, ‘Long.Live.ASAP’ — is planning on revealing yet another skill he’s conquered.
In addition to broadening the mindset of hip-hop heads everywhere with his Houston sound and haute couture, Rocky will be moving into the production side of rap fairly soon. How soon? He recently told Nessa On Air that he won’t reveal those details just yet.
“I am going to put it out—not even gonna announce it. Just drop it,” he shared.
He did say that he would be creating every one of the beats on his own — a feat that’s sure to be intriguing as the RCA/Polo Grounds Records emcee has already proven that he can put numbers on the board, leaked album, questionable wardrobe and all.
“It’s going to be interesting to see how people react [to] my production now,” he said.
A$AP dished his makeup tips to fashion and beauty blog The Coveteur, saying … “I feel like with the red lipstick thing, it all depends on the pair of complexion. I’m just being for real. You have to be fair skinned to get away with that.”
Jones — a Season 3 vet of “America’s Next Top Model” — tells us, “His comments show he has self-hate. Doesn’t he love himself? How do you make a comment like that when you’re brown yourself?”
Trina agrees … saying A$AP doesn’t know what he’s talking about, because she’s seen women of all shades “look beautiful in red lip wear.”
Rap’s ‘Baddest Bitch’ added A$AP can kiss something that needs no lipstick.

The feud between Drake and Chris Brown continues after the Canadian rapper took some shots at his nemesis during an interview with East Village Radio on Friday.
MTV reports that the 26-year-old reluctantly addressed his on-going beef with Brown, before finally admitting to dating Rihanna, when he told “Keep It Thoro” host Elliot Wilson:
“Don’t ask me sh*t about that man when I come up there and leave that man alone. Stop preying on his insecurities,” Drake said referencing Brown.
“His insecurities are the fact that I make better music than him, that I’m more popping than him and that at one point in life the woman that he loves fell into my lap,” he said, adding “I did what a real n***a would do and treated her with respect.”
According to Billboard, Drake recently alluded to the rumored love triangle in his recent single “5AM in Toronto,” in which he raps, “where you think she at when she ain’t with ya.”
And while we didn’t exactly need anymore evidence that Drake and Brown’s beef was over the “We Found Love” singer, the New York Daily news reported this week that Brown’s bodyguard Patrick Strickland has filed a lawsuit against both rappers over the injuries he sustained at W.i.P. last June, claiming the fight broke out after Drake sent Brown a note state, “I’m f**king the love of your life.”
Drake’s most recent comments about Brown has likely provided more fuel to their feud, especially since the 23-year-old “Look At Me Now” singer just happened to tweet “Lol” right after Drake’s interview aired:
