Gold Star

Being named Rakim after one half of hip hop legends Eric B & Rakim was always going to be a good omen for Rakim Mayers, known to us as A$AP Rocky.

Raised in Harlem, Rocky started rapping aged 8 after admiring The Diplomats, Mobb Deep and Run DMC. Claiming he is going to bring back hip hop, the hype circulating around him led to an incredible $3 million record deal two whole years before debut album Long. Live. A$AP was released. Featuring an all-star cast including Florence Welch, Skrillex and 2 Chainz, singles Goldie and Wild For the Night have gone on to recieve round the clock airplay.

After a fierce performance at Radio 1's Future Festival earlier this year, A$AP is sure to shine on the Reading & Leeds stage.
