Born in Harlem, a district of New York synonymous with the history of hip-hop, Rakim Mayers was perhaps always predestined
for stardom given that his name tips its hat to legendary duo Eric B. and Rakim. After enduring a difficult childhood, by
2007 he had put together his crew of fellow rappers, producers and visual arts experts, ASAP Mob, an acronym pertaining to
an ambiguous meaning. After a few years growing their reputation and putting out underground releases, in 2011 an unofficial
compilation titled Deep Purple was followed by his first official single, 'Peso'. 'Purple Swag' followed months later,
resulting in a multi-million dollar deal with RCA Records. From there, he started to cross over to a wider trans-Atlantic
audience, resulting in an appearance on the BBC's annual Sound of... poll in 2012 and a debut UK gig at London's Cargo
which saw fans queuing around the block to catch a glimpse of his show.
Cementing his place as one of his generation's most important artists, his debut album Long. Live. ASAP. hit the
UK Top 10 while topping the rap charts in the US. A lively performer, his shows are not to be missed, so buy ASAP Rocky tickets
