A$AP Rocky to release Rihanna tour documentary

Rapper A$Ap Rocky is set to release a documentary chronicling his time as the opening act for Rihanna's Diamonds Tour last year (13).

The five-part series, titled SVDDXNLY (Suddenly), will premiere on website Noisey.vice.com on 5 August (14) and will feature appearances from Drake, Rihanna and Snoop Dogg.

Director and producer David Laven tells The Hollywood Reporter, "He's been on a rapid rise, and it's kind of the thing about the film title - it may not be so straightforward, but he rose to fame overnight.

"Literally, two days in (to filming)... Rocky was just like, 'Can you guys just stay with us the whole tour?'... We came back and started editing, and this seven-minute piece we were going to make turned into an hour-long film."

The series will also include songs from the hip-hop star's upcoming instrumental album Beauty & The Beast: Slowed Down Sessions (Chapter 1).
