Maybe we didn’t get the First Day Out song, but it seems that Rocky is just on his way.
The 92.3 Real Street Real Festival in Anaheim, CA has a deck of cards, but the most awaited name on the bill is A $ AP Rocky, because he has not appeared since being released from Swedish prison on August 2. Rocky began Day 2 with the headline arranged from behind a white curtain. He remained veiled when he performed “A $ AP Forever” and acapella intros of songs that were not yet released. He then shouted “NEW SHIT” and asked for the music to be raised, the curtain falling along with the beat. Rocky is revealed on a platform, wearing a suit inspired by Testing and surrounded by a masked mob in the same outfit.
After doing a few test pieces, Rocky takes out his friend Tyler, the Creator, who is dressed neatly like your grandfather playing golf, as usual. Both display “Phone Calls” and “Who Dat Boy”. Before accompanying Tyler during the IGOR show, “EARFQUAKE”, Rocky paused to enjoy a “sentimental moment”.
He gave a little speech to express his gratitude for returning and for all who supported him when he was locked up: “I just want to say, what I experienced was crazy. I am very happy to be here, you all do not even understand … It was an experience condescending is scary, but I’m here now God is good … People who don’t even make love to me feel sympathy for my situation … It lifts me up when my spirits are low I can’t thank you all … Hip hop never seen so strong together. We are a big strong community. “
Then on set, Rocky celebrates by bringing in more friends, including A $ AP Ferg and YG.
Rocky was allowed to leave Sweden before his trial, which is scheduled to take place on Wednesday. He will plead not guilty.
Welcome back, Rocky. Watch the part of the set below and listen to Rocky’s speech at the 18:00 mark.
