Virgil Abloh Previews New Song With Swedish House Mafia And A$AP Rocky
People around the world have been protesting the arrest of A$AP Rocky in Stockholm. Even Donald Trump is making arrangements to bring Rocky back home after a long conversation with Kanye West. The music community around the world has been backing Rocky up by either posting his picture with the #FreeFlacko hashtag or signing online petitions. Virgil Abloh, on the other hand, decided to show his support in a much more unique way.
The designer recently previewed an unreleased track with Swedish House Mafia and Rocky during his DJ set at Melt Festival. Before spinning the track, Virgil told the crowd, “With this, we’re going to get Rocky home right quick.” He even encouraged fans to take out their phones to make sure they record this “very rare one.”
