When I interviewed ASAP Rocky for FADER #76, he said of his Harlem heroes, "Max B went to jail, Jim Jones cut his braids, now its ASAP's turn." During a Dipset reunion Friday night at New York's Best Buy theater, a newly shorn Jim Jones invited Rocky onstage. Cam, Jim and Juelz took the stage together, peeling off for solo sets. After his run, Jones hand-tagged Rocky as he rushed onstage, with a small assemblage of varsity jacket clad ASAP representatives, to perform singalong anthem "Peso." Jones stood back, head-nodding, with a gang of friends and family. Rocky leaped forward and counterpart ASAP Yams shuffled slow, toasting an Olde English. Today Rocky celebrated turned 23. He shares his birthday with his in-house producer ASAP Ty Beats, who turned 18. According to Facebook, Rocky's LiveLoveASAP may drop this week. According to Tumblr, Jones and Rocky are hanging out in the studio.
