How much money does ASAP Rocky have?

The rapper ASAP Rocky is actually called Rakim Mayers and was born on October 3, 1988 in the New York district of Harlem. With his first two albums he landed at the top of the US-American charts, and he also achieved considerable success with some singles. Besides music, he is also active as a fashion designer and actor. The estimated assets of ASAP Rocky are 10 million $.

The beginning of the rapper career

Mayers’ mother was a big fan of the rapper MC Rakim from the 80s hip-hop duo Eric B. & Rakim, which is why she named her son after him. Little Rakim started rapping at the age of eight, with his older brother Ricky serving as a role model. Ricky was shot dead when Mayers was 13 years old. Rakim Mayers took this as an opportunity to seriously approach rapping. In order to support his family financially, however, he became active as a drug dealer. In 2004, he spent two weeks on the prison island of Rikers Island.

In 2007, Mayers joined the rap crew ASAP Mob and gave himself his stage name ASAP Rocky. In 2011 he stopped drug dealing in favor of his music career. In July 2011 his debut single Peso was released, shortly followed by Purple Swag. In October of the same year Rocky released his mixtape LIVE.LOVE.A$AP, which earned him a record deal with Sony. This ran over two years and was endowed with almost 2.7 million $.
