For almost a decade, hip-hop trendsetter ASAP Rocky is one of the most influential hip-hop acts within the fashion space right now.
Throughout his career, he’s found ways to tightly integrate style and high-end brands into the world of music. From wearing gothic-inspired streetwear like Black Scale to rapping about avant-garde fashion designers like Raf Simons and Rick Owens, Rocky never shied away from making European high fashion as much a part of hip-hop as streetwear brands are.
To celebrate the Harlem rappers 30th birthday, here are our top five songs with fashion-based influences or references:
