For A $ AP Rocky, his new documentary is a chance to speak the truth, and he feels “truly blessed” to have the support of his famous friends and girlfriend, Rihanna.
Rocky spoke with ET on the carpet before Stockholm Syndrome premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York on Sunday, and spoke about the film and his sweetheart’s appearance.
When asked how important it was to have Rihanna’s support for the doc, Rocky replied that it was “important to have that support in real life, you know?”
“It’s amazing and honestly I’m really blessed, for real,” added Rocky.
With Rihanna – whom Rocky recently called “the love of my life” during an interview with GQ in May – the film also features notable appearances from some of the artist’s A-list friends – including Kim Kardashian, Naomi Campbell and Tyler the Creator.
The film itself follows Rocky’s rise to stardom, along with his high-profile legal issues that landed him in a Swedish prison, stuck for some time in solitary confinement, in July 2019. The artist has explained that “nothing is off limits” when it comes to what the film is ready to explore in his life.
“I think making a documentary is about vulnerability,” he explained. “The documentary aims to show honesty, authenticity, purity.”
For Rocky, it was important for him to explore the nuances of his life and career, as well as his imprisonment, without throwing it in a particular light, or in a way that tries to make people feel bad for his situation.
“I just wanted to tell my story without really complaining or without, you know, sounding like a victim, or like I wanted a pity party or whatever,” he shared. “So this is it.”
This documentary marks a return to professional life, of sorts, for the artist after more than a year of quarantine and containment amid the pandemic, and Rocky explained what he plans to work on during the coming year.
“The next step for me was what I did before going to jail,” he explained. “Me and the most beautiful muthaf ** ker of all time, we make headlines and creatively make history.”
