ASAP Rocky

A press release reads:

The much buzzed about rapper A$AP Rocky has signed with Polo Grounds Music/RCA Records, it was announced today by Bryan Leach, President of Polo Grounds Music, Inc. and Peter Edge, Chief Executive Officer, RCA Music Group.

"I feel great about the new deal; I believe it was destined and with a label like Polo Grounds & RCA behind me I don't see anything stopping us," says A$AP Rocky. "I wanted go with the right partner that can help get a bigger platform to get me and my A$AP crew's music and movement out. I expect to be in the same league as today's most relevant artists, and there are just some things you can't do on your own. The plan is to not only release great music, culture, and style for myself and A$AP worldwide, but to also be the next major artist/exec in the business and make great business men out of my brothers."...

...A$AP Rocky will perform at Vice magazine's Creators Project on Saturday, October 15 and the Fader Fort showcase during the CMJ Festival on Saturday, October 22. A$AP Rocky has also been tapped to join Drake's "Club Paradise" tour this fall.

Good looks. Harlem is the only part of NY rap to remain relevant over the last decade.

I hope he invests that advance money wisely, so he can pay it back incrementally and still have money to live off of in a few years.

The audience at the Santos show was more entertaining than the actual performance.
