Swizz Beatz Feat. A$AP Rocky and cameo from Allen Iverson- “Street Knock” (Official Video)

I think A$AP Rocky is trying to break some kind of record of being in a music video, like on a daily basis, which is pretty damn dope! We heard him featured on this Swizz Beatz song in late March, right after we came back from SXSW. Today, they dropped the video for “Street Knock”, which also features an appearance from ex-NBA All Star, Allen Iverson. He says that the cameo is a promo for bringing back his old shoe-line The Reebok Question. The Reebok Question will be available May 25.

I still stand by my claim that 2012 will be the best summer for music festivals, ever! To add to the list I have written about and compiled, here’s another fantastic lineup, you’re not going to want to miss. It’s The Bamboozle Festival, in Asbury Park, New Jersey, this May 18-20.

The 3-day festival will be beachfront, with 7 total stages. According to Bamboozle.com, “The Bamboozle Festival is an artist development resource that has launched the careers of so many of today’s top national recording artists and celebrities, while providing incredible entertainment to over 1 million fans over the past 9 years.” Sounds damn impressive to me, just wish I was closer to the east coast… any offers? ha.
