A$AP Rocky is calling the style shots in hip-hop right now and GQ catches up with the 23-year-old rapper from Harlem to talk about his fearless mix of streetwear and high fashion, the ladies, and “doing lunch” with fashion designers.
A$AP Rocky on his style: “With clothes, I like mixing what different designers do until it becomes a personal expression of how I’m feeling that day. This vest is by Skingraft. It only comes out for a GQ shoot or a hot date with an actress. That’s the bourgeois look. Booj-waaah.”
…on his love for the ladies: “When I was a kid, I was a little horndog. First it was candy and girls. Then it was girls and bikes and scooters. Then it was girls, rap, and clothes. Now it’s girls, directing videos, my house, and fashion. And girls, girls, girls.”
…on “doing lunch”with fashion designers: “[Fashion designer] Jeremy Scott is my boy. We’ll do a shoot and then do lunch. Every time I see him, he has gifts for me. He knows I like weed, so he’ll bring edibles.”
