Rapper A$ap Rocky Has Laughed Off Reports Suggesting He Is Making A Mixtape With Veteran British Rocker Rod Stewart, Insisting His Comments Were Made In Jest.
The hip-hop star recorded an unlikely collaboration with Do Ya Think I'm Sexy hitmaker Stewart for his new album At.Long.Last.A$AP, titled, Everyday, and in a recent interview with Vulture.com, Rocky claimed they had teamed up for a series of other tracks too, which he would be including on a new mixtape.
He said, "Me and Rod Stewart have a mixtape coming out (sic). It's called Born to Be Pretty and it's definitely a panty-dropper. Droppin' this summer. You already know."
A$AP Rocky then hinted that it was a joke by then stating he was also doing a mixtape with singer/actress Zoe Kravitz, with her rock icon father Lenny hosting, but some publications still ran with the story and now the rapper has spoken out to clear up any confusion.
Taking to Twitter.com on Thursday (04Jun15), he writes, "THE ROD STEWART MIXTAPE WAS SAID AS A JOKE , AS FUNNY AND INTERESTING AS IT WOULD BE, UNFORTUNATELY, "BORN TO BE PRETTY" IS NOT REAL, LOL (laugh out loud)".
