A$AP Rocky, real name Rakim Mayers from New York, has gone from strength to strength in the hip hop world, becoming one of the most critically acclaimed rappers of recent times.

His back catalogue includes two number 1 albums in the Billboard charts. His latest album, a second studio album, called At. Long. Last. A$AP, was released at the end of May.

As well as his hip hop career, he's also become known for his style. He not only released his A$AP clothing brand in 2013 and collaborated with fashion designer Raf Simons, A$ap was also named one of GQ Magazine's 20 Most Stylish Men Alive.

He is set to enthrall audiences with rap tracks from his latest and fourth album, Blacc Hollywood, including hit See You Again, which featured on the soundtrack of movie blockbuster Furious 7.
