A$AP Rocky, born Rakim Mayers, has reiterated many times that he is "not a fashion designer." The officially sanctioned A$AP Rocky collection of tees and tank tops at Karmaloop is the only A$AP Rocky apparel available at the moment. A$AP Rocky is a member of the hip hop collective A$AP Mob, from which he was inspired to call himself A$AP Rocky. There are many meanings for his moniker, among them, "Always Strive and Prosper," "Assassinating Snitches and Police," and his personal favorite, "Acronym Symbolizing Any Purpose." His branded, street style clothing reflects the messages he puts into his rap.
