To celebrate NBA Rookie of the Year Kyrie Irving’s success in the NBA this year, Alife teamed up with Pepsi Max, the A$AP Mob, and French Montana for what should’ve been a crazy night.

Everyone’s favorite VJ, radio host, and beanie-rocker Sway, recently sat down with Black Hippy’s ScHoolboy Q at MTV studio’s to discuss Q’s relationship with his Harlem, New York brethren A$AP Rocky.
In 2011, Q and Rocky linked up in the studio to drop two bangers on us, first with “Brand New Guy” off of Rocky’s Live.Love.A$AP mixtape, followed by “Hands on the Wheel” off Q’s Habits & Contradictions LP.
