Happy birthday, A$AP Rocky! The ‘Everyday’ rapper and Selena Gomez collaborator is turning 27 years-old today, October 3! We hope he has the best day!
A$AP Rocky, real name Rakim Mayers, is turning 27 years-old today, October 3! While his career has been golden for quite some time, the rapper has had an excellent year, spiked by his collaboration with Selena Gomez, “Good For You.” No better way to make serious money then to get on the good side of the Selenators!
A$AP has been living the life of a rockstar; there’s no doubt about it! Though he was formerly linked to the gorgeous Chanel Iman, 24, his trip to SXSW in March 2015 made it clear that being single is treating him well.
He revealed in May 2015 that while at the music festival, he dropped acid and had himself an orgy with three girls while he was at it. Well, that’s a bit of TMI. But you have to admit — that sounds exactly what a legendary music star would do in a movie, doesn’t it? Should we say Good For You?
His highly-anticipated album, At.Long.Last.A$AP, dropped on May 26, and while it was totally great, it did get him in a little trouble. “Better Things” was a major, disgusting diss at Rita Ora (we’ll let you read the lyrics here), that likely didn’t go over so well with her fans.
With “Jukebox Joints,” he professed his love for Rihanna. He didn’t say her name, but co-opted lyrics from “Umbrella” to describe the lady in his heart. Maybe he shouldn’t have called her “the pretty big forehead b—h” though!
His music has taken him to incredible heights this year; he performed at the MTV VMAs, and that song with Selena is absolutely on fire. Good move! We hope the next year brings him even more success!
