As mentioned earlier, Mayers decision to take rapping seriously, came about when he was 13, as it was the death of Mayers’ brother that prompted the decision. Having looked up to his brother for much of his early life, the death affected him greatly and eventually joined New York hip hop collective ASAP Mob. With ASAP standing as “Always Strive and Prosper”, the group really began to gain momentum after ASAP Rocky’s inclusion! As fellow member, ASAP Ferg told the Village Voice, “There’s really no leader, but, really, there is a leader and that’s Rocky, we all learn from Rocky. It’s not so much hands-on what he teaches me, but I learn from him by observing. The way he moves. He’s the perfect blueprint.” Suffice to say with a life story that reads perfect for a rise-from-adversity movie plotline, Mayers adoption of the name ASAP Rocky, proves that with enough grit and drive the sky is the limit!
Releasing his debut single, "Purple Swag" in 2011, it wouldn't be long before the rapper gained enough exposure to entice a number of record labels. Releasing his first mixtape, Live. Love. A$AP and ever the business savy rapper, ASAP Rocky signed a two-year record with RCA Records and Polo Grounds Music for an impressive $3 million dollars! Needless to say, with such high critical acclaim, by the end of the year ASAP Rocky gained a nomination for the BBC's Sound of 2012! As such the following year, our rapper soon found himself joining Kendrick Lamar as an opening act for Drake's Club Paradise Tour!
