10 Things You Didn’t Know About A$AP Rocky

by @Djordje

tumblr_na2eg9ArdR1qkihe6o3_500

Music and fashion icon A$AP Rocky is killing the game on his own terms. With a #1 album under his belt and two more on the way, the 25 year-old rapper is fast cementing his position as one of the musical voices of his generation. We hang out with Rocky stateside to kickoff the youth revolution…

“You already know,” is a constant refrain of the A$AP Mob, the multimedia collective that launched A$AP Rocky. It’s part verbal tic, part truth. Because there’s a lot that you already know about A$AP Rocky, né Rakim Mayers, aka Lord Flacko. You know the look: full gold grill, French braids, conceptual designer duds. You know the music: wavy, eclectic, Southern-inflected rap that began with cult 2011 mixtape Live.Love.A$AP and peaked – so far – with last year’s Billboard #1 album Long.Live.A$AP. You know the bio: ambitious kid overcomes a Harlem childhood spent slinging yeyo and rolling dice on the corner to become a pop-culture phenomenon living up to his crew’s acronym: Always Strive and Prosper. So what don’t you know?

A$AP Rocky Covers The Girls + Boys Issue of i-D Magazine

by @Djordje

df427f7eeb87ef59ea0fbe3ce957c4bc

It’s an incredibly exciting time to be alive. The internet and social media have had a revolutionary impact on the way we interact, socialise, work and play, and as a result given rise to one of the most exciting and creative periods of recent decades. In The Girls + Boys Issue of i-D we explore what it means for boys and girls, like ourselves, growing up today. Splitting the issue down the middle, model of the moment Leona ‘Binx’ Walton heads up the GIRLS, while fashion’s favourite rapper A$AP Rocky heads up the BOYS.

With a number one album under his belt and two more on the way, A$AP Rocky is fast cementing his position as one of the musical voices of his generation. We hang out with the Harlem born rapper to discuss his new albums and the ever-progressive ways in which the digital world continues to shape our generation and beyond. “There are so many visionaries coming out of our time, it’s amazing,” A$AP enthuses. “We have the tools at our fingertips to do anything we want. It’s beautiful.”

A greater awareness and acceptance of people from all walks of life is one of the most positive and vital outcomes of our increasingly connected world. In her first commission for i-D, journalist, presenter and transgender rights activist Paris Lees celebrates the rise in transgender models, singers and spokespeople on television and in magazines. We also explore sexuality in a modern world, and rejoice in the news that many LGBT boys and girls in the Western world no longer feel outcast but accepted. Young feminist voices such as Petra Collins, Karley Sciortino, Phoebe Collings-James and Arvida Byström are harnessing the digital space to bring about a new sense of female empowerment. While NY artist and photographer Michael Bailey Gates proves that only, “aggressive thinkers with courage are what create change.”

The new faces in this issue spend anywhere between two and a whopping twenty hours a day on social media(!). For Tyler the Creator, it’s too much, but for others it inspires and influences everthing they do. We also catch up with two young starlets and one young designer on the cusp of great things; Emma Roberts and Emily Browning, and Jacquemus.

I’ll leave it to A$AP Rocky to conclude: “How would I describe our generation? Mother-fucking awesome!” We couldn’t agree more.
