23 year old MC A$AP Rocky and his A$AP Mob are hip-hop’s latest craze as they jumped onto the scene in the past six months. After dropping his mixtape Live, Love A$AP, Rocky has been in a whirlwind and with this article in courtesy of GQ he talks about his love for high fashion and brands like Raf Simmons, Rick Owens, and Comme Des Garcons. Also GQ asks him to give his take on the latest looks from NYFW.
“If I’m wearing Rick Owens and all that other shit, (people in the hood) are not use to that,”Rocky says.“I’m going to be a fashion icon in a minute. I’m not going to do it in a corny matter. I have a voice that speaks for a whole other market, not just black people, but high fashion urban people. I mix street wear with high fashion. It’s never been seen before.”
