Amidst high anticipation for A$ap Rocky’s fourth rap album “Don’t Be Dumb”, Harlem’s legendary emcee and record producer has finally premiered the “Riot (Rowdy Pipe’N) music video.
Directed by A$ap Rocky himself, the music video furthers Rocky’s incendiary rap music as he swerves across Paris blocs in a tank. “Flacko Got The Tank”, an actor can be heard right at the beginning of the music video. Notably, the music video does not feature an appearance by its record producer Pharrell Williams.
The music video arrives within days after Rocky premiered the lead single “RIOT (Rowdy Pipe’n). Produced by the Louis Vuitton Menswear Director, the rap record was featured during La Flacko’s historic Amazon Music Live Set in Los Angeles.
In fact, the “Long.Live.A$ap” rapper premiered another single “Same Problems?” from his forthcoming LP too.

Upon its release, A$ap Rocky teamed up with Beats by Dr. Dre for its latest “Beats Studio Pro” headphones commercial. The short film, directed by Rocky himself, featured his latest rap record “RIOT” and captured the A$ap Mob affiliate on a diaper run for his son RZA.
At the time, fans presumed that Rocky’s latest single may not have a visual treatment at all. However, it’s here now.
Notably, Rocky hasn’t won a GRAMMY Award for self-directed music videos since his third studio album “Testing”. Released on May 25, 2018, the 15-track album featured guest verses from various Hip-Hop/Rap pioneers including Kid Cudi, Skepta, Kodak Black, French Montana, Dev Hynes and FKA Twigs.
Most recently, Rocky allegedly dissed Houston’s legendary emcee Travis Scott.
As reported earlier, the A$ap Mob bossman, who recently shut down Rolling Loud Miami, appeared to “throw shade” at Scott by premiering an unreleased rap record from his highly anticipated forthcoming album “Don’t Be Dumb”.
Interestingly, Rocky himself headlined Rolling Loud’s second leg in the U.S. this year alongside the “Whole Lotta Red” emcee Playboi Carti and Travis Scott. The alleged flagrant diss involves the legendary woman emcee and singer Rihanna too. Reportedly, Rihanna was involved in a relationship with La Flame before Lord Flacko.
Scott is yet to respond to Rocky.
