Most people go to South by Southwest to perform, promote their new film or report on the festival as a journalist. But A$AP Rocky had a totally different experience.
In an interview with the New York Post, the rapper talked about the psychedelic influence on his new album, which he released a week early on Monday night. Much of that influence is thanks to his friend, rapper ILoveMakonnen, who gave Rocky LSD at the festival once. "Makonnen gave me acid at SXSW," Rocky said. "This n---a looked like Buddha with a Jheri curl! After that, I went back to my mansion and f--ked nine chicks. It was pretty rad. That’s a true story."
It is indeed a true story, as Makonnen later confirmed the story on Twitter.
So wait, nine women? Rocky explained to the New York Post that he didn't actually sleep with all of them at once. "You have three at a time, and then you have three orgies," Rocky said. "That’s nine chicks."
Rocky, who was at SXSW this year to promote his acting debut in the upcoming film "Dope," clearly had a more eventful festival experience than most. We don't even want to know what he'll do next year.
