A$AP Rocky has finally dropped his "Goldie" video and the Harlem rapper left nothing to be desired. The clip comes complete with the standard trimmings of a hip-hop video--nearly naked women (or in this case, actually naked women), cars, expensive clothing and jewelry but Rocky, as always, makes it uniquely his own. Maybe it's the Eiffel Tower backdrop.
The A$AP Mob hit Paris to film the clip, and you've gotta love the visuals of a gold-mouthed A$AP against the scenic backdrop, drinking 40s and champagne dressed in the finest of Alexander Wang gear. "Goldie" is the first single from Rocky's debut Long.Live.A$AP, due out in July.
In a teaser released earlier this week, he explained his vision for the clip. “Basically the concept of the video is to be more flamboyant and just to showcase a lot of flashy luxury—old foreign cars and fashion models," Rock said. "I need you to know this is all my idea. I’m the flyest motherfu--er you know."
“With this video, I think people are gonna respect the art and the visions,” Rocky added. "They gonna respect the swag.” In the above clip Rocky breaks down how the collaboration with producer Hit-Boy came about.
