His success came overnight and it couldn’t come any faster. A year ago, A$AP Rocky was just a regular young man in New York, because of his talents, he went mainstream. Last October, the 24-year-old Harlem native signed a reportedly $3 million deal with RCA/Polo Grounds. His visuals gathered millions of views online and he also has been featured on the cover of some of the biggest music magazines. Rocky recently added another magazine cover under his belt. He is covering the first ever dual issue of Clash Magazine. The split concept piece focuses on the Hip-Hop star and his rise to fame. For the covers, Rocky was shot by British artist Matthew Stone. In the 10 page cover story, Rocky talks about being more than just a Hip-Hop artist (he is a video director, fashion icon and artist), racism in Hip-Hop, A$AP comparisons to Wu Tang and much more. This issue hits newsstands July 5. Which cover to you like better?
