A$AP Rocky

Harlem-bred A$AP Rocky used the Internet to his advantage, and wound up becoming a key figure in New York’s youth-based hip-hop revival. Although some would accuse him of copying Houston-based acts, such as UGK, on “Purple Swag,” his originality shined through on “Peso.” Rocky’s success includes recognition as a cultural leader and a fashion icon, which in turn made it possible for the career of his crew’s own A$AP Ferg to take flight.
