A$AP Rocky‘s prominent use of a Rod Stewart sample on “Everyday,” a single off his Billboard 200-topping new album At.Long.Last.A$AP, surprised many — but it turns out that’s not the last you’ll see of the unlikely duo.

Rocky shared in a recent interview with Vulture that he and Stewart are dropping a mixtape together (one has to assume this is Rod’s first “mixtape”) at some point this summer. Titled Born to Be Pretty, the record is, according to the rapper, “definitely a panty-dropper.”
2015 is looking like a busy year for the rapper — this project joins a posthumous A$AP Yams album and a Lenny Kravitz-hosted mixtape (with his Dope costar Zoe Kravitz) in the rapper’s list of upcoming releases.
UPDATE: It was a joke — bow down to A$AP Rocky, master of the trolls:
THE ROD STEWART MIXTAPE WAS SAID AS A JOKE , AS FUNNY AND INTERESTING AS IT WOULD BE, UNFORTUNATELY, “BORN TO BE PRETTY” IS NOT REAL, LOL
