Harlem-raised Rakim Mayers began rapping at the age of eight, joining hip-hop collective A$AP Mob by the time he was 20, from which he adopted his moniker. The A$AP’s debut album Long. Live. A$AP was one of the most hotly anticipated after his debut mixtape received huge critical acclaim and drew the attention of rappers like Drake, who subsequently invited him on tour.
