SELECT 1 on 1: A$AP Rocky Discusses his Upcoming adidas Shoe & More

September 25, 2013 BY / 1

SN:  How hands-on did you get in the design process? Did you and Jeremy sit in a room together and work on it? Do you go back and forth on emails? How does it all go down?

A$AP Rocky:  Every way you just named. I see him in person, we talk about it, we go over emails, we get on the phone sometimes, stuff like that.

SN:  So is it him throwing stuff out to get your feedback and then you just keep tweaking it based on what you like and don’t like?

A$AP Rocky:  Not necessarily. This is just one amongst many things that we’ve collaborated on. The process isn’t always consistently the same thing every time. There’s always a different process each time and it’s more of an experience each time.

SN:  Where did the “Black Flag” concept come from? It seems safe to assume that it’s a nod to the use of the flag on your album covers, but does it go deeper than that?

A$AP Rocky:  Basically, yeah. The Black Flag is a reference to us turning a traditional red, white, and blue American flag to black and white, and it’s basically like anarchy and we turned it upside down and stuff. And the “Black Flag” was just a tribute to that. You know, sometimes we would do an all black flag or an all white flag or a black and white flag, and he just took that and threw it on the Wings and it was just an homage to what we do.
