A$AP Rocky, aka Rakim Mayers, aka Lord Flacko is the gold grill wearing, French braid rocking, Pussy, Money, Weed loving, music and fashion icon who’s been taking over the world, one slick album at a time. King of Southern inflected rap, it all began for A$AP in 2011, when a French fan released a compilation of his amateur YouTube videos called Deep Purple, and things pretty much blew up from there. His debut album Live.Love.A$AP received critical acclaim while his latest albumLong.Live.A$AP was last year’s Billboard #1. Now living in between Soho and LA, the i-D cover star, and serial fashion killa, has come a long way from Harlem. Fast cementing his position as one of the musical voices of the digital generation (he’s got a lot of time for all things online), life is looking pretty good for A$AP Rocky. In his own words: ‘’when life throws you lemons, make Sprite.’’
