A$AP Rocky checked into Beats 1 radio with Zane Lowe to talk about his recently released album, and more. The radio appearance coincides with the debut of his “Everyday” music video featuring  Rod Stewart, Miguel, and Mark Ronson.

At the start of the interview, Stewart, called in and gave Rocky props for “Everyday” which samples the British singer's music. “I loved it,” said Stewart. “I mean I’m not absolutely a rap fan, I try to understand… I can understand what other people love in it.”

After a few laughs, Rocky got more serious when speaking about staying true to himself with At.Long.Last.ASAP. “It’s not about the trill or swag only, those are aspects of me that makes me as a whole,” explained the Harlem native. "I wanted to manifest all my personality traits into this album.

“I didn’t want to hide nothing,” he asserted. “I wanted to tell ya’ll I was doing psychadellic drugs, that I messed up my relationship, and I miss my best friend [A$AP Yams].  I don’t wanna’ hide nothing no more.”

That sentiment of honesty carries into Rocky’s “Everyday” music video, touted as a “Hip-Hop Hollywood Story.” In the video Rocky grapples with the challenging combinations of fame and sobriety.
