A$AP Rocky Dons Yacht Wear For ‘GQ’ & Reveals The Source Of His Inspiration (Spoiler: It’s Him)

A$AP Rocky is rocking his Hamptons wear for a new GQ shoot, which is just about the greatest thing. It’s truly incredible to think about the stylistic leaps rap has taken in the past ten years. Unless you were Andre 3000, a move like this back in ’03 would’ve had all the hip-hop heads shunning you. Now, it’s more or less expected.

But the fact that rap’s self-described pretty motherfucker is in a 10-photo fashion spread wearing the finest of nautical threads isn’t even the best part of this item. The best part is when A$AP Rocky admits that his greatest inspiration is…A$AP Rocky.

Talking about menswear blogs, where he’s become something of a fixture, the Harlem MC says, “I’m the man on those things. I don’t really look at them. Well, I guess I do, but only when I’m looking at myself. I inspire me.” And you inspire us, Rock. You inspire us.

Check out his full shoot at GQ.
