A$AP Rocky is closing out the year strong. After getting cozy with Rihanna in “Fashion Killa,” and “Angels” striking fear into everyday citizens, Lord Flacko cuts to a deeper meaning in the video “Phoenix.”

Directed by Francesco Carrozzini, A$AP Rocky goes into storytelling mode with a dramatic clip co-starring actor Michael K. Williams and supermodel Joan Smalls. “They don’t expect the average…me with my gold teeth and swag, it’s just really about a life message,” explains Rocky when speaking about the visual in support of his Long.Live.A$AP debut album.
