Two years ago, Rakim Mayers, known to us as A$AP Rocky, was just another young, up-and-coming emcee out of Harlem hidden from the rapidly moving hip-hop community. Murmurs of his $3 million deal with RCA and his influence on Drake’s sophomore album Take Care not only created great anticipation for him as an artist but also brought great skepticism for Live.Love.A$AP. However, A$AP Rocky’s brash, braggadocios style of lyricism joined with the ethereal production of A$AP Ty Beats and Clams Casino launched Rakim’s career to unbelievable heights, pushing Live.Love.A$AP to well-deserved critical acclaim. Although 2012 was an astronomically successful year for him, A$AP Rocky and his future as a mainstream artist lingered in uncertainty due to the ever-delayed release of his debut album (moved from July 4th September 24th, October 31st, to an unknown time in early 2013). After much scrutiny and criticism, though, Long.Live.A$AP is finally going to be unveiled to all January 15th, 2013 and silence those who questioned A$AP Rocky’s ability to be anything more than a style icon.
WHAT I’M WEARING NOW The shirt is Raf Simons. I love him. He’s probably the most influential designer I have ever followed. Not only that, but he listens to my music. He listened to my music before we met. The pants are Alexander Wang, given to me free 99. My shoes are a special kind of Timberland and have a weird texture. The whole idea is for them to be rugged, so I’m trying to wear them more often so they get beat up.
