Fashion has been deep routed into rap music from classical groups like Wu-Tang Clan, N.W.A, Naughty By Nature & plenty of more. But a certain Harlem native by the name of Rakim Mayers has been making a lot of noise on the music industry scene by his stage name A$AP Rocky. With his Harlem swagger and attitude, he brings a mixture sound of street rap and the famous chopped and screwed flow inspired from the south.
A$AP Rocky has no problem with expanding his mind and venturing off into other area’s as he stay’s dressed to impress every time the camera’s flash on him. His versatile style has been turning head’s since the day he stepped on the music scene. It hasn’t been the easiest trying to avoid his face as he’s featured on magazine cover’s for GQ, Jalouse, Complex & Clash. He’s gaining a lot of respect from both the music industry and the fashion industry. Designers like Jeremy Scott, have reached out to A$AP Rocky as he admires his unique style he brings to the industry. We expect t hear and see plenty more from A$AP Rocky even as he released a new clothing line which is now available for fans to purchase.
