A$AP Rocky, who is most famously known for his rap career and his relationship with Rihanna. The rapper had a rough childhood as his father would go to jail for selling drugs and his brother would pass away at the early age of 12. With his song “Purple Swag” managed to break through and make a name for himself in the music industry where he started to gain more fame and success as time would pass.

By joining the A$AP Mob, a collective of rappers, producers, music video directors, and other creatives from New York City, Rocky acquired the last name “A$AP.” Yams, Bari, and Illz from A$AP Mob founded it. The initial meaning of “A$AP” was “Always Strive And Prosper,” however through time, it has come to mean many different things. Needless to mention that the rapper has risen far above anyone’s expectations, however, in recent news, the rapper has now been charged with assault.
