A$AP Rocky Covers the Holiday Issue of GQ Style

by @Djordje

The World’s Flyest Human. It’s a bold claim. But in the near-decade since A$AP Rocky bounded out of Harlem and landed smack in the center of the music-and-fashion Venn diagram, he’s earned the title. With his million-watt charisma and effortless style, he’s become the most influential dresser in the world—and a steady hitmaker to boot. As Will Welch says in our holiday cover story, “It’s not a stretch to say Rocky is responsible for making European high fashion as much a part of hip-hop and pop culture as streetwear.” For our photo shoot, we interrupted Rocky’s late-night London studio lockdown (he was hard at work on his forthcoming album) for the kind of daring, don’t-try-this-at-home fashion shoot that only Rakim Mayers can pull off. And in a rowdy backstage interview in Philadelphia, Rocky reveals details about his next solo record and his newly-inked Under Armour deal. Plus, with some help from the A$AP Mob, Rocky fields a batch of questions we gathered from Raf Simons, André 3000, Mahershala Ali, and more. Visit GQ Style tomorrow morning to read the interview, check out the cover shoot by photographer Andrew Dosunmu, and see for yourself: A$AP Rocky really is the world’s flyest human. Don’t @ us.
