Happy Birthday, A$AP Rocky!
Happy Birthday A$AP Rocky! The Harlem spitter is turning 29 today (Oct. 3).
Since emerging in the early 2010s as an NYC rhymer with a decidedly southern-sounding style, Rocky has remained among the most famous hip-hop stars in the game. He hasn't dropped an official studio album since 2015s At. Long. Last. A$AP, but Rocky has been a constant featured artist on tracks by stars like The Weeknd, Lana Del Rey and Playboi Carti, among others.
Kanye West tracks featuring Rocky leaked online early in the summer. Back in July, Rocky announced that A$AP Mob’s anticipated project Cozy Tapes Too is done.
“COZY TAPES TOO (2) FINISHED! CANT WAIT 4 YALH 2 HEAR THIS SHIT!!! R.I.P YAMMY YAMS…. A$VP FOREVER!!!” he tweeted in all caps, so you know he serious.
Cozy Tapes Too is the follow-up to the group’s Cozy Tapes, Vol. 1: Friends, which is dedicated to their late svengali A$AP Yams. A$AP Mob has been promoting the LP with a bunch of singles, including “Wrong,” featuring Rocky and A$AP Ferg, and “RAF”featuring Playboi Carti and Quavo.
Pretty Flacko announced his own line of vape pens back in August; and he appeared on Playboi Carti's "New Choppa" and tripped out in D.R.A.M.'s "Gilligan" video.
In September, Rocky teamed up with the footwear and apparel brand Under Armour for a “multi-faceted strategic partnership." The deal consists of a collaborative collection to be release by year’s end, where it will be housed under the lifestyle division of Under Armour Sportswear (UAS) banner.
