A$AP Rocky’s Style Evolution [Photos]
Just two years ago, a 22-year-old, baby-faced Harlem emcee was making noise with his Houston-inspired music. A$AP Rocky, born Rakim Mayers, was something unlike what anyone had seen up until then. He embodied the uptown flair that Jim Jones and his Dipset crew made popular within the hip-hop scene in the early years of the millennium. Not only did he borrow from their “devil may care” attitude but Rocky took things a step further, rocking haute couture wardrobes straight off the runway — from ’106 & Park’ to the front row at Fashion Week.
The juxtaposition of his chopped and screwed music and his avant-garde style makes the A$AP Mob leader one of the most intriguing new cats to make his mark in the rap game. Here, TheDrop.fm takes a look at 10 of his most fashion-forward movements.
