Subscribe to TheBoombox on

A$AP Rocky has enjoyed one of the swiftest rises to stardom of recent memory and Noisey is looking to tell his story in their new five-part documentary, ‘SVDDXNLY.’

The first installment picks up in 2013 as the Harlem rapper and his crew open for Rihanna on her ‘Diamonds’ World Tour, featuring never-before-seen backstage footage as Pretty Flacko prepares to perform in front of some of the biggest crowds of his career.

Looking back at his initial breakout, the documentary spotlights Rocky’s very first shows in 2011 — at the ALife store, Santos Party House and The Creators Project, all in New York. Delving into the rapper’s history outside of rap, the film also includes interviews with Rocky’s mother and sister, who share some old gems from the family photo album.

The rest of the series sees A$AP Rocky open up about his father and brother, as well as chopping it up with the likes of Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore and Bun B.

Stay tuned for part two of the ‘SVDDXNLY’ documentary, which drops next Tuesday (Aug. 12).
