A$AP Rocky: Drake Taught Me Confidence

Before he hit the stage at the mtvU Woodie Awards in Austin, A$AP Rocky caught up with MTV Buzzworthy on the red carpet. The Harlem newcomer, whose RCA/Polo Grounds debut is due in July, flashed his grill as he shared what inspires him and what he learned from touring with Drake on the “Club Paradise” tour.

“I learned how to gain confidence, stage presence, because honestly before all of this, I was actually partying with the crowd,” said A$AP. “It really wasn’t me doing a show. It was actually me performing. Now I put on an actual show.”

Watch him give props to Drizzy and perform “Hands on the Wheel” with Schoolboy Q below.
