Playing SXSW can be a pretty tedious experience, a week full of countless performances and media obligations that run together like a real-life version of Groundhog Day, only without Bill Murray. Actually, my mistake: Phil Connors does make an appearance.
Which makes ASAP Rocky‘s recent SXSW experience all that more ridiculous. As the Harlem MC recounts in a new interview with the New York Post, his latest trip to Austin saw him tripping on psychedelics while engaging in a series of sexual encounters.
From Rocky’s own mouth:
Why do you think LSD is so in vogue in rap right now? It’s obviously an influence on your new material, and for artists like Chance the Rapper and ILoveMakonnen too.
There’s definitely a psychedelic influence on my new album. Makonnen gave me acid at SxSW. This n***a looked like Buddha with a Jheri curl! After that, I went back to my mansion and f**ked nine chicks. It was pretty rad. That’s a true story.
Did you say nine women? As in, one fewer than 10?
Yeah, but not all at one time. It’s like group sex. You have three at a time, and then you have three orgies. That’s nine chicks.
Nice to know at least one rock star still exists.
