Noisey rolls out part 1 of its five-part documentary series with A$AP Rocky, dubbed SVDDXNLY.

In the first clip, the Harlem rapper talks about waiting to be famous as a kid, his first freestyle at the age of eight, and some of his earliest memories.

It also follows A$AP Rocky, as he prepares for his opening slot on Rihanna’s “Diamonds World Tour,” who makes a cameo backstage at his Hollywood Palladium show.

“Everybody out there was hype as sh*t,” she says of the crowd. “I want my crowd to look like that before I get on the stage.”
