Rapper A$AP Rocky transforms into a dapper seafarer in the May issue of GQ. He's hanging dockside with some hotter-than-hawt ladies and looking snazzy while doing so.

In the nautical spread, the Harlem-born hip-hopper reveals an early interest in fashion, saying, "I wanted to model when I was younger. I was always into clothes and s---."

He knows that his style is pretty much exalted on style blogs for dudes, but he doesn't pay too much attention to it, saying. "I’m the man on those things. I don’t really look at them. Well, I guess I do, but only when I’m looking at myself. I inspire me."

There's no better inspiration, right?

There's also some shirtless shots, which the honies will no doubt lurve.

In the video accompanying the feature, he says his motto is simple: "F--- it."

During the shoot, he got to ride on a jet ski…that is, until the cops came. Then he said "F--- it." He doesn't just pay lip service to the credo. He also says he knows he's pretty and if you don't like it, well, f--- it.

The May issue is on stands now so pick it up.
