A$AP Rocky and Rihanna

Bang bang, boom boom, pop pop. A$AP Rocky turns his swag on in the artsy video for “Fashion Killa,” the latest track off his debut Long.Live.A$AP to receive the visual treatment.

The Harlem rapper cuddles up with fellow fashion icon Rihanna while popping tags in the clip, which he directed with Delaware. The stylish duo tries on some designer threads and goes shopping for fashion magazines, and RiRi even makes out with a mannequin.

“She’s a fashion killa in my eyes,” Rocky said of his co-star during his appearance on “106 & Park.” “I respect her jigginess. I respect her fashion sense, so that’s why I used her as a female.”

The conceptual clip features cameos from the A$AP Mob crew including A$AP Ferg and tagger Kid O. “We used his art and we used her art for being a fashion killa and made this conceptual video.”

See Rocky and RiRi share their passion for art, clothes, and each other.

Beyoncé

The second annual Budweiser Made in America festival rolled into Philadelphia over Labor Day weekend. A diverse lineup of hip-hop, rock, EDM, and R&B acts took the stage on the first day including Public Enemy, A$AP Rocky, 2 Chainz, Emeli Sandé, Phoenix, and Beyoncé.

The A$AP Mob leader invaded the stage 30 minutes late. “Pardon my tardiness,” he said to some not-so-pleased fans, who quickly forgot about his lateness.

“It’s time to turn the fuck up,” he declared before performing his hits “Fuckin’ Problems” and “Wild for the Night.”

2 Chainz sailed into the festival with his B.O.A.T.S. catalog and performed “Netflix,” his collaboration with Fergie, for the first time.

Public Enemy took hip-hop fans back with their classics during their hour-long set. Chuck D and Flavor Flav pledged to donate $10,000 to aid Philadelphia’s school system, challenging Beyoncé to either match or surpass their contribution.

Queen Bey closed out Saturday’s lineup, bringing her “Mrs. Carter Show World Tour” to Benjamin Franklin Parkway. She opened her 90-minute set with “Run the World (Girls)” and had the 60,000 strong singing along to “Irreplaceable” and “Party.”

Festival curator Jay Z did not perform, but he was seen smoking a cigar and passing out bottles of Ace of Spades during Deadmau5′s set.

Solange kept the crowd moving into the early AM by performing at the after-party.

Made in America continues on Sunday with performances from Kendrick Lamar, Wiz Khalifa, Miguel, and Nine Inch Nails.
