Quotes

  • “Everybody should be able to enjoy their life because you only live once. So I just want to get it all out there and be the best role model that I can be if people want to put me in that kind of predicament. I mean, I didn’t ask to be a role model, because I’m not perfect.” – A$AP Rocky
  • “I represent the kids who come from nothing but who understand it all and love it all. That’s what I represent – those are the cool kids, you know, the kids of tomorrow, because who would’ve known that I’d be who I am today? We are the kids of tomorrow.” – A$AP Rocky
  • “I have a Rolex, but no diamonds. Rappers wear diamonds to compensate for a lack of fashion sense. I don’t even have pierced ears – I’m not into that; it’s too much.” – A$AP Rocky
  • I’m not saying that hip-hop needs gay rappers or anything, but they need to stop being so close-minded because that will just cause the genre to fail. Look at pop. Pop doesn’t discriminate against people. Look at Lady Gaga, y’know what I mean?” – A$AP Rocky
