For those frothing at the mouth for new beef-related gossip between feuding rappers, you'll be happy to know that you can choose sides between A$AP Rocky's and Spaceghostpurrp's mobs and klans this Art Basel Thursday. Well, sort of. We're being a tad bit dramatic here. But it's a blog. Excuse the hype.
The trill life rep is hosting an art exhibition at the Garrett with Adidas and HVW8 Gallery. That same day, Robb Bank$ and Metro Zu, among other friends of SGP will be performing down the street at the Electric Pickle. No guarantee or even hint that he'll be there, but it's fun to pretend.
Though not a concert, the show at the Garret (upstairs at Grand Central) sounds like a pretty rad representation of some up-and-coming LA and New York artists.
Fortune, as the group show is called, will have work by Harlem's Justin West
, who helped A$AP Rocky's video get his look, Los Angelean graphic designer Hassan Rahim
, Cal Arts grad Alessandro Moroder
, and artistic observer of the New York urban landscape 13th Witness
We heard through the grapevine that it's possible that Rocky will also perform a song or two, but there definitely will be music by DJ Mr. Mauricio and the ever-awesome Peach Fuzz DJ DZA.
In other news, A$AP's real first name is Rakim, named after the classic hip-hop star who, oddly enough, will be performing Friday at the Stage.
Fortune, presented by Adidas and HVW8 Gallery, hosted by A$AP Rocky. 8 p.m. to midnight, Thursday, December 6, the Garrett (above Grand Central) 697 North Miami Ave., Miami.
