If A$AP Rocky could smoke weed with anyone—dead or alive, he’d pick the King of Pop. He told of room full of media heads this a couple of Fridays ago at the launch of his Guess Club pop-up shop in Los Angeles:

“I would love to smoke a blunt with Michael Jackson. I wonder what his weed-smoking voice would have been. Would it have been high-pitched? I’m upset that he passed before I became famous because I really wanted to be in his presence. I wanted to be in the presence of greatness.”

That’s really just a fun aside from what was a super fun night out in L.A. I covered the event for Billboard while nabbing a denim jacket and tee from the ‘90s nostalgia collection (which he’s wearing in the shot above). The venue, designed to be a three-story treehouse, had arcade games, tents, booze and stylish partygoers enjoying the function.

After that, my girl and I went to The Standard Hotel West Hollywood for their monthly THIS NEVER HAPPENS party in the Mmhmmm room. It was easily the most fun and best party we’ve been to during our two years in Los Angeles. Great new and old music from DJ Earry Hall.

Oh, and people actually danced, which is an extremely rare sight out here. When we go out, the two of us are usually the only people doing more than a two-step. But we finally stumbled upon a room of folk who like to boogie. It was our first TNH party, but definitely won’t be our last.

A$AP Ferg: A Cozy Boy Hits Paris

The guys in the A$AP Mob have a unique kind of charm. It’s a mix of uptown NYC street smarts and downtown cool. From their raps to their clothes, it’s easy to tell that they’re not one-dimensional artists. Regarding style, I spoke to A$AP Ferg about attending his first international fashion week. He went to Paris to support his buddy and label mate A$AP Rocky, who recently became the first African American face of Dior. They both attended Dior’s masquerade party, which he greatly enjoyed.

Ferg, too, has had his hands in many fashion endeavors, designing pieces for several reputable brands, cosigning labels on the come-up and, of course, wearing some other the flyest stuff out that many simply just can’t afford.

“Oh, I was very cozy at the masquerade party! I felt like Master Bruce. I transformed with that coziness.” – A$AP Ferg

For Billboard, Ferg broke down the term “Cozy,” which I was already familiar with, but had to explain for those that slept on the Mob’s Cozy Tapes Vol. 1: Friends  2016 album and haven’t heard Rocky or Ferg’s slick talk in interviews over the last year or so.

It was really a fun conversation. I got a great understanding of who he is as a creative and a businessman who’s enjoying the ride while getting shit done. Check it out.
