Harlem-born hip-hop artist A$AP Rocky recently sat down with Upscale Hype to discuss a topic that’s become a common conversation piece among pop culture figures across the board, and while guys like Wale and Kanye have been on Air Jordans for as long as we can remember, Rocky doesn’t hide the fact that he just recently got into Jordans. He may ruffle a few feathers by claiming a disinterest in Air Jordan IIIs, but his new-found love for Air Jordan IVs (pointing to the White/Cements he had on his feet) should definitely appease some of the more picky sneakerheads/hip-hop fans. Rocky also speaks on some of his favorite brands, so check out the full video below to get a feel for Rocky’s personal style.
he ripped off aesop rock name who is a way better rapper (a real rapper) mainstream is a bunch of f%gs not even rappers bunch of ushers w gold teeth like chris brow i hope i never see a pic of him again in j's he has no clue who the guy is he didn't watch him growing up all these new guys suck
Aahahahha dude's don't recognize the brands so they hate. Don't be mad he ain't dressin like the rest of you, his outfit rivals the cost of some peoples collections. He fucks with REAL sneakers, like Raf Simons, Rick Owens, and MMM. Y'all need to up your fashion game.
Who des fuk is this clown?? And who wears those Jeremy Scott shoes outside of clown college. Kendrick Lamar, Stalley and Meek the only new rappers I can fuk with, the rest of these nikkas look like they might take it in the butt.
Peso is aite, the beat knocks but his ryhmes are mediocre... Sorry I'm a Curren$y fan. & Really SneakerNews...This isn't SN worthy! Just my 2cents
Why is this dude still famous, no hate He is fake and tries to be from houston?!? Big L, Cam'ron, Vado, Ma$e, Max B (free the wave!), JR Writer, Juelz Santana, ALL have a better flow and lyrics than him and actually rep Harlem and NYC
well at least he didn't try to act like some real live sneakerhead cause he got on some 4s....but that skully is cool. Rest of the outfit...not so much....what is this shirt-dress mess? Makes him look like....I don't even know....just not something I would wear....that Peso go hard though
his style and music is wack i started collecting when i got the fours?? that was like a month ago loser just got a style from somebody in the store he got them from
I'm not really sure why he deserved a story. Dude said "I dont really fuck with sneakers too much." and he "collects" 4's...what a hype
If I make a video about my style and what I like to wear would you guys watch it?... Why did we just watch this.
THIS GUYS A CLOWN, HES SOFT, AND HIS MUSIC SUCKS. NEW ERA OF RAP IS GARBAGE NOTHIN BUT NERDS NEW ERA OF KIDS ARE FUCKIN LOST AND CLUELESS WHAT REAL RAP IS . GO AHEAD THUMBS IT DOWN CHANCES ARE U SAME LOSERS THAT THUMBS IT DOWN ARE TEENAGERS THAT WEAR SKINNY JEANS SNAP BACKS AND TIGHT CLOTHES SAME CLOWNS THAT STAND IN LINE FOR JORDAN RETROS LOL FUCCKIN LOSERS SMH YALL GOT NO CLUE ABOUT SHIT THIS NEW ERA IS LOST I FEEL BAD 4 EM TO BE HONEST . #RestInPeaceRealHipHop
I feel a little bit more retarded for just watching that. Oh, and Wale killed his "Purple Swag" beat. Nigga look like he got a flannel dress on with black leggings, lol. Lil' Wayne looks tame compared to this faggot.
His music is dope if you've actually taken the time to listen to his mixtape. I think the issue here is that Asap Rocky isn't really a sneakerhead. Just another celebrity wearing a recent Jordan release trying to come off like they on some exclusive shit. He has his own sense of style I'll give him that but he should keep the shoe comments at a minimum since he obviously doesn't know kicks.
His style is beat I'm sorry each his own but its dumb. On a side note whats with people tying flannel shirts and sweatshirts around their waist again?
"Over populated" ? So you won't wear or like a shoe cause it has a large fan base ? That's a weak ass excuse to me. *shrug* Can't say I like his music too much either...except Peso.
I almost agreed on everything you said but im 19, i fuck wit snap backs but i still listen to real hip hop. I dun even know who this dude is, i still take illmatic and stillmatic and any other album nas or common or talib or hov comes out wit over drake and every other radio rapper out.
I feel you. This guy and all the new hip hop is equivalent to all this new crap jb is releasing these days. While legends like nas, dre and krs-one are getting forgotten like some ogs. Smh
I agree I hate standing in line for hours just to wear shoes someone else has thats why I usually wait a few months before bustin out with my js ive only worn my cement 4s once and am barley starting to wear my last shots
he's saying he doesn't like it because he's seen way too many people with it. I can't blame him I hate having the same exact shoes as everyone else. it's like you wouldn't want to get dressed thinking you're fresh only to see tons of people wearing the exact same thing as you.
Amebn!! thats why the shoegame is dieing! EVERYBODY!! cops the same thing nobody picks what they like anymore...its just it has a jumpman so "cop"!! or "man!!! everybody loves these!! must cop" instead of getting what they like they get what others like its annoying as hell...shoegame is F--d up so bad right now...hating it really...SMH all these children ruined the shoegame..
