A$AP Rocky is a natural trendsetter. Since 2011, when the Harlem rapper and leader of the A$AP Mob debuted a distinct fusion of syrup-slow Southern rap and Uptown Manhattan swagger on his debut mixtape, LIVE.LOVE.A$AP, he’s been influencing pop culture and making it seem effortless. As Rocky’s developed into a producer, director, actor, model, designer, and creative director, not a damn thing has changed. He leads, the people follow.
And so it makes perfect sense that A$AP Rocky is the first GGN guest in a new era for Snoop Dogg’s beloved news show, which originally launched on his YouTube channel, WestFestTV, and has been an important part of MERRY JANE’s YouTube network. Today marks the launch of MERRY JANE’s content partnership with Apple Music, which will now exclusively air new MERRY JANE/Snoopadelic Films-produced GGN episodes on a bi-weekly basis. Apple Music will also air a selection of archived episodes, such as Snoop’s classic interviews with Seth Rogen, Jamie Foxx, Ice Cube, Omarion, Rick Ross, DJ Khaled, and Khloe Kardashian.
On the newest episode of GGN, Rocky and Snoop talk about music, fashion, the eras they most closely identify with, how beef gets blown out of proportion, being ridiculously high, and more.
