Weeks after his release from jail in Sweden, A$AP Rocky made up for the lost time by gifting fans with a new song and video titled “Babushka Boi.” The Harlem rapper teased the video earlier this month. Directed by Nadia Lee Cohen, Rocky and his crew aim to rob a bank while keeping out of law enforcement’s grasp. The visual pushes boundaries when it comes to makeup and wardrobe, adding to Rocky’s mission of producing aesthetically pleasing music videos.
On Instagram, the 30-year-old thanked his supporters for their concern after a Swedish judge ruled that he was guilty of assault. The sentencing avoided a jail stint, but Rocky will have to “pay damages to the victims” and allocate funds for “expenses and public legal counsels” for the state, according to Rolling Stone. “I am of course disappointed by today’s verdict,” he began. “I want to say thanks again to all of my fans, friends, and everyone who showed me love during this difficult time. Imma keep moving forward.”
