Anyone who's checked out the music of Harlem up-and-comer A$AP Rocky knows he loves high-fashion references. Check out his mixtape Live.Love.A$AP and you'll hear several designer label shout-outs. But in a recent interview, A$AP says the name-dropping may stop.
When asked how important fashion is to his music:
"It is what it is. I didn’t realize the importance until people made it a big deal. I’m gonna do this regardless. I might stop name-dropping though. I’m not even gonna rap about brands anymore because I don’t want people to think I’m doing it on purpose. If you see me, you see me; you don’t then you don’t. I don’t even wear stuff with monograms on it because I don’t want people to identify what I’m wearing. I don’t want no name brand tags and labels and all that. You’re supposed to try to figure out, “What does this dude have on right now?” Only a real fashion dude would know."
