ASAP Rocky American rapper.

Rakim Athelaston Mayers, better known as ASAP Rocky, is a Manhattan-based American rapper. He is a part of the hip hop collective A$AP Mob, where he got his moniker. Rocky’s track “Peso” was released online in August 2011 and garnered radio playing within weeks.

  • Born: 3 October 1988 (age 32 years), Harlem, New York, United States
  • Height: 1,79 m
  • Full name: Rakim Mayers
  • Parents: Adrian Mayers

ASAP Rocky has his own place and moves at his own pace. And, while the creative universe in which most of his original ideas are born remains an atelier yet to fill album stores, the rapper turned fashion star has done something just a few Hip Hop musicians have been able to do over the years: establish a name for himself simply as a pop culture expert.

Rocky’s triumphant return to the charts, however, will be marked by the release of TESTING, his debut studio album, in May 2018. When the 15-track project was released, it made ripples, proving Rocky’s capacity to disrupt solely on the strength of his work and expression.
