A$AP Rocky Warehouse Live February 26, 2012
For more photos from Sunday, see our slideshow.
Who is A$AP Rocky? The simple answer is that he's a kid from Harlem who's real name is Rakim, who proclaims himself a "pretty muthafucka," and who loves all things Houston. From the flows to the purple drank, the guy eats it all up and channels it into his raps.
More importantly, with all of the buzz Rocky has generated in the blogosphere, he was named as the top rapper to watch in 2012. He and his crew are this year's Taylor Gang, this year's Odd Future. And then there is the fact that he was signed to a multimillion dollar contract with Sony/RCA/Polo Grounds Music.
So why should we care? We have plenty of new blood in this city rapping about the very same things with just as much talent. This is true, but after Sunday's show, Rocky proved that he is more than just hype, and you just can't hate on anyone who genuinely champions Houston as much as he does.
