A$AP Rocky Debuts New Playboi Carti Collab At Smoker's Club Festival As Rihanna Watches On
San Bernardino, CA – A$AP Rocky returned to the stage this past weekend at the Smokers Club Festival in San Bernardino, California — and he had some surprises in store for fans.
During his eagerly anticipated set on Saturday (April 30), Lord Pretty Flacko previewed a couple of new songs for the Glen Helen Amphitheater crowd, and the new tunes seemed to go down a treat. In a clip shared on social media, Rocky had the crowd turnt up as he performed a hard-hitting collaboration with Playboi Carti.

A second clip showed the Harlem rap star teasing another unreleased track reportedly titled “Mushroom Clouds.” That record found A$AP Rocky using autotune in a more somber tone compared to his Carti collaboration.

Watching the whole set from the side of the stage was Rocky’s pregnant girlfriend Rihanna, who seemed to be enjoying the performance with her bare belly on show.

A$AP Rocky’s last album, TESTING, came in 2018, and fans have been patiently waiting for something new to drop. Rocky unleashed a few loose singles over the years, including “Babushka Boi,” but people have made it clear Flacko is long overdue for a full-length project.
The 33-year-old seems to be keeping his energy high with his Smokers Club Festival performance given his current legal troubles. The A$AP Mob leader was arrested at LAX on April 20 for his alleged involvement in shooting that took place in Hollywood in November 2021.
Rocky was released from custody after posting $550,000 bail and guns that were found at his home don’t match the weapon used in the shooting. However, it was reported last week that police seized video evidence of the shooting, which could spell bad news for Pretty Flacko.
