A$AP Rocky Drops 'Babushka Boi' Video
A$AP Rocky is getting back to the music. Three weeks after arriving back in the U.S., the Harlem rapper takes on the pigs in the comical video for his new song “Babushka Boi.”
The Dick Tracy-inspired clip, directed by Nadia Lee Cohen, opens with Rocky and his quirky crew of bandits robbing a bank. Following their heist, they are chased through the streets by the police, who are dressed as pigs. Wearing facial prosthetics, Rocky and his cartoonish crew of gangsters, which includes A$AP Ferg, ScHoolboy Q, A$AP Nast, and Kamil Abbas, face off with the pigs in a bloody gun battle, which ends with them becoming sausages.
Rocky debuted “Babushka Boi” live on his “Injured Generation Tour” earlier this year. It marks his first music since he was arrested and detained for assault in Sweden, leading to a guilty verdict. He won’t face jail time, but has been ordered to pay damages to the victim. A week after his homecoming, Rocky returned to the stage at the Real Street Festival in Anaheim, Calif.
On Tuesday, Swedish prosecutors announced that they would not appeal the verdict. “I have accepted the District Court’s evaluation of the evidence, in as much as the use of whole or broken bottles during the assault has not been proven,” said prosecutor Daniel Suneson. “After due consideration, I have chosen not to appeal the verdict.”
