ASAP Rocky Speaks On Lana Del Rey Collaboration
Published on April 9th, 2012 | by Oliver Rivers3
ASAP Rocky recently spoke on his track with Lana del Rey called “Ridin’,” a preview of which was leaked on the internet last week and then shortly thereafter disappeared. Rocky mentioned that the track was going to appear on the Kickdrums’ mixtape Follow the Leader, however, Rocky decided he wanted to keep it for his album.
Now Rocky speaks on his love for the indie songstress and “Ridin’” to Billboard’s The Juice.
On the song, Rocky says,
“I might not put it out before because people already know what it is. It sounds crazy so far though. We were just gonna call it ‘My Bitch,’ but we’re not gonna get much play with that, so we called it ‘Ridin’.’ [The song] is some Bonnie and Clyde shit.”
“You didn’t know about me being a huge Lana Del Rey fan? That’s all I kept talking about all winter,” Rocky continued, “I first had had a crush on her from seeing her on the Internet — I fell in love with her voice the first time I heard it. I probably heard it in July, August for the first time, I think it was ‘Blue Jeans.’ And from then on, I’m like… I love her! Mind you, we never even spoke to each other, and then in Complex [magazine], when she said I was her favorite rapper, I was like, ‘Oh fuck no, man. I gotta work with her! My dream girl acknowledges me!’”
