Druggy Harlem rapper ASAP Rocky plays Jean-Michel Basquiat to fashion designer Jeremy Scott's Andy Warhol on the cover of this month's Complex magazine. And here is his new video, which has some fun with familiar rap-video tropes. (Be careful if you're at work right now, it may not be entirely safe for you to watch there.) The song, an echoey, ethereal number, was produced by the wonderfully-named Clams Casino, who should make a song for Jay-Z called "Oysters Roc-a-Fella." It could be about diamonds and pearls, or just having lots of money, or maybe something sexual.
