Drake is not the only rapper in Toronto. If you don’t know, P. Reign is an up-and-commer from the Toronto area as well. For his newest track “We Them Niggas”, P. Reign connects with ASAP Rocky. “We Them Niggas” can be found on P. Reign’s upcoming mixtape “Dear America.” The title of the tape is symbolic of P. Reign showing to the masses in America who he is. In addition to featuring ASAP Rocky, “Dear America” will also boast features from Drake, Waka Flocka Flame and French Montana.

ASAP Rocky recently spoke with Billboard at the 2012 Pitchfork Music Festival. In the interview below ASAP Rocky talks about “LongLiveASAP”, his network TV debut next Friday on Jimmy Fallon, and says that we will have the Mob album in “2 Weeks”.
“Who’s that?” ASAP Rocky asks when the Dirty Projectors begin their set and start emitting their pitch-perfect vocal harmonies at the 2012 Pitchfork Music Festival. When informed of the Brooklyn indie rock group’s handle, Rocky stands up to get a better view of the group. When he sits back down a minute later, he asks an ASAP Mob member to write the name ‘Dirty Projectors’ down and asks, “What do they make? Reggae?”
So it goes at Chicago’s Pitchfork Music Festival, where genres awkwardly bump against each other and tastemaker-approved artists unwittingly discover each other’s mass appeal. An hour before speaking with Billboard.com, Rocky had wrapped up an unrelenting, brilliantly vacuous set alongside his A$AP Mob cohorts, stomping through “LiveLoveA$AP” cuts while threatening the audience to put their hands up. When the rain started and quickly intensified, no one in the crowd moved a muscle; instead, they bounced along with the bass of “Hands on the Wheel” and supported crowd-surfers during “Wassup.”

This Wednesday at 4 p.m., a Chicago veteran and a Harlem rapper on the rise will bring two worlds together on what will undoubtedly be a memorable episode of “RapFix Live.” A$AP Rocky will make his return to the red couch with MTV News’ Sway Calloway, while Lupe Fiasco makes his official debut on the show.
Since the last time he appeared on “RapFix” with Young Jeezy and Big K.R.I.T. back in November, A$AP Rocky’s star has only continued to rise. On the heels of his critically acclaimed Live.Love.A$AP. mixtape and his $3 million record deal with Sony, the Harlem rapper has continued to extend his influence in the hip-hop arena, commanding guest appearances from artists such as Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Waka Flocka and Bun B during his own sold-out shows and rocking festivals like South by Southwest and Coachella.
