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.
