Last week, I posted A$AP Rocky’s L’UOMO Vogue cover.  This Harlem emcee was shot by famed photographer Francesco Carrozzini and he dressed in Dolce & Gabbana for the cover of the Italian publication. Today, some excerpts and pics from his photo spread were released. The March 2013 issue will hit newsstands soon.

Yeah my mouth is full of gold and I’m a city boy and my outfit was in Vogue, I’m a pretty boy,” rapped A$AP Rocky on “Ghetto Symphony”.

I used a very unorthodox approach in my first CD Live.Love.A$AP. I had a very clear vision of what I wanted to produce. At the same time, I felt the need to show everyone what I could do. Therefore, everything – from the choice of beats to the lyrics – was all my own doing and fully represented me. Yet for my second album, I felt I needed to expand my horizons and to involve more people, while maintaining my personality. That’s why you can find tracks like Hell or PMW, which are an evolution of what I did on my previous album, besides new material like the song with Skrillex. Repeating myself would have been a waste of time for me and my listener,” said A$AP Rocky.

I’ve always been interested in fashion, since when I was a kid and used to shop on 5th Avenue. But the real leap in quality occurred when I was 16 years old. I immediately loved Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, and Gucci. Nevertheless, my approach has always been spontaneous, based on a sort of fashion sense that lets me blend haute couture with streetwear. What’s most important to me is originality. I don’t have problems mixing things: I don’t care if the outfit is considered elegant or not. It’s my style. Period,” said A$AP Rocky.
