ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE RAP­PER WHO’S TRENDING HARD.

The 26-year-old Har­lem-born rap­per/ pro­ducer/fash­ion­isto has un­leashed a whole new brand of so-cool-it’s-hot. His ado­les­cence was spent sell­ing crack in the Bronx (badass), but since mix­tape Live.love. A$AP went vi­ral in 2011, he’s been busy sign­ing mul­ti­mil­lion-dol­lar record deals and boss­ing fash­ion, of­ten draped in Rick Owens. This month, an act­ing de­but along­side Zoë Kravitz, new al­bum At.long.last.a$ap and nu­mer­ous fes­ti­val head­line gigs ce­ment him as a se­ri­ously big deal. Born Rakim May­ers on Oc­to­ber 3, 1988. Is a big Rick Owens and Raf Si­mons fan, and col­lab­o­rated with Si­mons on a cloth­ing line in 2013. He’s also the face of Sal­va­tore Fer­rag­amo.
