A$AP Rocky‘s career has taken him from the streets of Harlem where he was born and raised to the cover of L’Uomo Vogue‘s March 2013 Cover. Seeming to come straight from from the day-dreams of an inner city kid, his journey has actually not been without its struggles; but stories like this only make his success that much sweeter. Dressed in Dolce & Gabbana and plenty of other high-fashion labels from Italy, this short film shot by Francesco Carrozzini shows a rare behind-the-scenes look into what goes into a spread of this magnitude, beyond what you’ll find printed between the covers. Always on the edge of music, fashion, and business, A$AP Rocky will be in the spotlight for many years to come. Check it out in full video below.
