A$AP Rocky: SVDDXNLY – Part 4/5

In part 4 of the SVDDXNLY Documentary the fans get another in-depth look at ASAP Rocky’s life, celebrity mentors, and friends. ASAP speaks fluently about his humble perspective and opinion about life. I identify with ASAP’s motto of doing right by himself and always doing what he feels is right. The Harlem rapper speaks his truths while immersed in an atmosphere that some would consider negative. There’s weed in every scene or at least some type of reference to it.

Songstress Teyana Taylor has finally released the video for her single “Maybe,” and it oozes sex appeal.

Using a series of wigs and costume changes, G.O.O.D. Music’s leading lady portrays three different female characters with the same goal: to lure men into her diabolical hands. She plays herself in an all-black get-up and a wig of long kinky curls, as well as “Jacqueline Mercury” in a fiery red wig and matching cat suit, and finally, “Greyla Greathouse” in a seductive bra and panty set complete with a gray purple wig.

In the preview, Ms. Taylor previously said she was going for a “sexy, underworld type of a feeling.”

It’s not just a video the guys will enjoy, there’s a little eye-candy in there for you too, ladies. Philadelphia Eagles Linebacker Mychal Kendricks plays the suave, romantic love interest, and they share a smooch at the end of the video.

Hit that play…
