A$AP Rocky may be better known for fashion than fitness, but as one poor paparazzo discovered this week, he keeps himself in pretty good shape.
TMZ bumped into Pretty Flacko in the sunny streets of Los Angeles on Tuesday (October 31), but it quickly became apparent that this was no ordinary interview as the Harlem rapper was in the middle of a jog.
Not letting the opportunity to talk to Rocky pass her by (literally), the interviewer was put through her paces as she attempted to run alongside him and fire off a series of questions about his music career and personal life.
Rocky revealed that he’s still putting the finishing touches on his upcoming project, but he remained tight-lipped about the 6 God’s apparent shot — although his focus was more on running (and laughing at the breathless pap) than answering questions.
Eventually, the paparazzo gave up and conceded defeat. “A$AP, I’m dying. I’m fading fast. Man, you’re in good shape,” she remarked as the rapper left her for dust.
Years before coupling up and having kids with Pretty Flacko, RihRih is rumored to have had a fling with her “Take Care” collaborator. She revealed in 2018 that she and Drizzy “don’t have a friendship now, but we’re not enemies either.”
On the song “Fear of Heights,” Drake led fans to believe he was addressing Rihanna by rapping: “Why they make it sound like I’m still hung up on you?/ That could never be/ Gyal can’t run me/ Better him than me/ Better it’s not me.”
His verse continues: “I’m anti, I’m anti/ Yeah, and the sex was average with you/ Yeah, I’m anti ’cause I had it with you/ Okay, I’m auntie like your daddy’s sister/ Auntie like a family picture/ And I had way badder bitches than you, TBH/ Yeah, that man, he still with you, he can’t leave you/ Y’all go on vacation, I bet it’s Antigua.”
Elsewhere, on “Another Late Night,” the OVO hitmaker mentions Rihanna’s new man by name by saying: “I ain’t Pretty Flacko/ Bitch, this shit get really Rocky.”
As for his own new album, A$AP Rocky has yet to confirm a release date for Don’t Be Dumb, but he’s been steadily teasing it for some time.
“I’ve been really experimenting as usual and what I like about this is it feels like my best work yet,” he said of the long-awaited follow-up to 2018’s TESTING.
“I want to leave expectations wide and open. I don’t want to tell you what to expect. I just want people to experience it how they do naturally.”
