Who is A$AP Rocky?
Born Rakim Athelstone Mayers on October 3, 1988, A$AP Rocky is a world-famous rapper and record producer who hails from Manhattan, New York.
The 33-year-old star is a member of the hip hop collective A$AP Mob, from which he adopted his moniker.
Rocky’s career started in August of 2011 when his single, Peso, was leaked online. Within weeks, the song started to receive radio airplay.
The rapper then released his debut mixtape: Live. Love. A$AP.
The success of his mixtape led to a record deal with Polo Grounds Music, RCA Records, and Sony Music Entertainment.
How long has A$AP Rocky dated Rihanna?
Rihanna and A$AP Rocky were first linked back in 2018 when the two were spotted sitting close together at the Louis Vuitton show for Paris Fashion Week.
By the end of 2020, Rihanna and Rocky had been spotted together on numerous occasions, even taking a vacation together in Barbados.
While on vacation, the two were photographed kissing on a boat, seemingly confirming their relationship.
In a 2021 interview with GQ, Rocky referred to Rihanna as “my lady” and the “love of my life.”
“So much better when you got ‘the one.’ She amounts to probably, like, a million of the other ones,” he said.
“I think when you know, you know. She’s the one.”
In September of 2021, the couple made their red carpet debut at the Met Gala.

On Monday, January 31, 2022, the superstar couple revealed they are expecting their first child via a photoshoot showing off Rihanna’s baby bump.
Rumors began to swirl that the two were expecting a child in late 2021 after fans posted photos claiming Rihanna had a visible baby bump.
One verified user, The Academy, wrote: “Rihanna is pregnant with her first child with A$AP Rocky.”
The tweet has received thousands of retweets and favorites since.
A source close to the couple confirmed the news to the outlet revealing that he was born on May 13, 2022.
