Fashionable recording artist A$AP Rocky reminds us that the summer is just around the corner in his latest GQ magazine spread. The Harlem native does a nice looking photo shoot on a yacht and jetski in the deep seas. In the shoot, the rising Hip-Hop dynamo styled in designer brands including Louis Vuttion, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Tom Ford and much more. Below is an excerpt:
“Rocky’s cocky ascension into stardom has been one part dope rhymes, one part highly evolved style. “I wanted to model when I was younger,” he says. “I was always into clothes and shit.” It’s a fact that’s constantly reinforced by his lyrics (Drop-crotch Jeremy Scott pants, bitch it’s Hammer time) and by menswear blogs that practically worship him. “I’m the man on those things,” Rocky gloats. “I don’t really look at them. Well, I guess I do, but only when I’m looking at myself. I inspire me.” And that’s the third ingredient in his ascension: star power. The man behind hits like “Fuckin’ Problems” has a cool so untouchable it landed him on a world tour with Rihanna and earned him the assurance that as long as he’s got an army of fans, he’ll never lose his phone again.”—Mark Anthony Green
