(Note Language) It’s been a few months since A$AP Rocky and Rihanna welcomed their first baby, so the rapper has had some time to get a feel for parenting. In an interview with Complex, he reflected on his experience with fatherhood thus far, noting it’s already helped him to get his priorities straight.

“It’s beautiful,” he said of the life adjustments he’s made since becoming a father. “Honestly, I think fatherhood gives me more time to do exactly what I want. I don’t have time for anything that isn’t priorities.”

“It helps you prioritize, honestly. I love it,” he continued. “Everything is just based around my newfound love for being a dad and a family man. It’s lit right now. I can’t even describe it. Yo, you see this smile! I’m all smiles right now, man.”

With priorities on his mind, A$AP continues to share his art via music and fashion. He recently launched his new design studio, Hommemade, a “dream come true” that will feature “tons of innovative decor.” He’s also working on his upcoming album. A$AP says it’s nearly time for him to “start dropping songs and getting prepared for the rollout,” noting he has “some cool sh** in store.” “It’s not a situation where they are going to have to wait long,” he added. “It’s like ASAP, no pun intended.”

Overall, A$AP is focused on perfecting his artistry.

“I’m in a place where I want to give my all to all of this. All I have is my craft, my art and my family. That’s just my life,” he explained. “I just want to give motherf***ers some dope sh**. They’re going to see. It’s going to be ill.”
