The most stylish rapper out there, in town recording tracks for his new album, drops in on Paris Fashion Week and tells us why he always makes a point to stand out from the pack.
GQ: What brings you to Raf’s show today?
A$AP Rocky: Raf is one of my biggest inspirations. The way that music inspires people, fashion inspired me. Raf is basically one of my icons. He invited me personally so I couldn’t miss it.
GQ: How long have you been a fan?
A$AP Rocky: Probably since 2007
GQ: What was it about Raf’s aesthetic that hooked you?
A$AP Rocky: It seemed really immature and frivolous at the time. It was rebellious, it was adolescent, it spoke to a teenager, and now that I’m grown it’s like, his work still grows with me; I feel like I can always relate to it. It’s crazy when you can get a connection with things like fabric and garments because music or movies usually do something like that for people, but for me it’s fashion.
GQ: Speaking of growth, how do you think your own style has evolved in the past few years?
A$AP Rocky: I stay true to myself. I guess I have unique style because I dare to differ. I don’t care about fitting in, I don’t want to look like anybody else.
GQ: You’ve done a little designing of your own, most recently with Jeremy Scott on a sneaker. Do you have plans for designing more in the future?
A$AP Rocky: [laughs] I mean you see me here right now, right? You never know.

In New York City’s industrial-chic TriBeCa neighborhood, a small army is gathered to prep for A$AP Rocky’s first Teen Vogue photo shoot. The set is around 20 stops on the 1 train (which the star not-so-lovingly raps about on his debut album) from the Harlem streets where he perfected his craft. But he’s not coming from his native home, where, at 8 years old, the boy known as Rakim Mayers first started freestyling with the encouragement of his older brother, who was tragically killed five years later. Instead, Rocky, as he prefers to be called, arrives fresh off a jet from Los Angeles, where he’s been working on his sophomore record. The second he walks through the door, all eyes are on him.
