Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

A$AP Rocky shines onscreen as brilliantly as he does onstage in the first chapter of the SVDDXNLY documentary from NOISEY. The opening installment clocks in just under 10 minutes and juxtaposes solo shots of a contemplative Rocky recounting his rise with raucous tour footage and tender family photos. The introduction to the Harlem World MC chronicles his evolution as a lyricist from the earliest rhymes he spit at the behest of his older brother to rocking out on the road with Rihanna and the rest of the A$AP Mob. Check the footage below to get the first taste of SVDDXNLY. Purchase Rocky's Long.Live.A$AP LP via iTunes. Stay tuned for the second installment of the 5-part documentary series, which is slated to arrive on August 12th via NOISEY.
