A$AP Rocky is a successful Harlem-representing rapper and one of Hip-Hop’s most fashion-forward artists. But in another life he just may have been an interior decorator. 

At least that’s what he told GQ Style magazine, of which he graces the latest issue’s cover.

“If I wasn’t doing this, to be real with you, I’d probably be an interior designer. I got this obsession,” Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye told GQ Style EIC Will Welch. Style collected questions from some of Rocky’s most famous friends for a feature in the magazine’s holiday issue. “I have such good taste. I love flowers. I think décor value and feng shui is very important.”

Oh yeah, the new album is done.

So when we saw you in London recently, you were on a phone-off lockdown, making an album. What was the vibe—the starting point for the new album?

My new album is really about testing new sounds. 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.

The feature covers a variety of topics include jumping some dude at Santos in NYC, potentially naming his kid Pharrell, details about his Under Armour partnership and plenty about his love for Raf Simons.
