A$AP Rocky is getting his Kanye on, declaring himself “the greatest artist of all-time”.
During A$AP Mob’s set at “Rap Caviar Live” at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom last week, the Harlem rapper thanked his hometown for their support before getting boastful.
“I’m the greatest f*ckin’ artist of all time,” Rocky told the crowd. “I’m on my cocky Kanye sh*t, whatever the f*ck, suck my d*ck with that, n*gga. I’m the greatest contemporary artist of all time, Renaissance, contemporary, all that. I need y’all n*ggas to know. All this little razzle dazzle bum-ass sh*t going on, but Flacko season ’bout to drop real soon.”

A$AP Rocky is currently working on his first new album since 2015’s At.Long.Last.A$AP.
According to Flacko, in a recent GQ Style cover story, said the new LP will feature experimental sounds.
“My new album is really about testing new sounds,” he told the magazine. “People are scared to test new sounds, so they go with what’s current ’cause it’s the easy thing to do. The top 100 songs sound a certain way. People cater more to that because it’s a bigger demographic behind that, or it’s a guaranteed demographic behind that. I prefer to experiment and have my crowd grow with me and to reach new crowds. I don’t just rap—I actually make music. That’s why it takes time. These sonics represent me.”
