ASAP Rocky and Aesop Rock are just too similar. One of them should change.
Also, I thought it was pronounced "A-S-A-P Rocky" not "Asap Rocky"
its pronounced Asap. I.e. ay-sapp
I'd never actually heard anyone say it, but was assuming it was A.S.A.P as in "As Soon As Possible"
Like most rappers, he tends to talk about himself in the third person a fair bit.
That has to be the stupidest thing I've heard this year. Is this serious?

New Black Bear F*cker Club & Th' 1967 Little Red Cold Young Crystal Deer Bells
Part of Living Legends crew. I used to get him mixed up w Aesop Rock, and NOW we have A$AP Rocky.
Asop - Rock It ft. Aesop Rock & A$ap Rocky
from differentiating the two rappers.
i assumed it was intentional
but in Poland there are rival banks called PKO (pronounced Peh-ka-oh) and one called Pekao (pronounced Peh-kay-oh).
i don't think it really matters
At the time I thought the show was just too cheap to get the real Dre on
was extremely chinny.
Ja Rule for biting his name. There's also the likes of Young Guru and Gang Starr's Guru, not to mention the similar names that went on back in the day, with all the Grandmasters, Grandwizards, and Kool something or others.
Can't say I ever noticed the ASAP/Aesop similarity, though I daresay it's pretty obvious.
He didn't come up with the ASAP (always strive and prosper) crew anagram, and, he chose Rocky because his birth name is Rakim (after the New York rapper) but ASAP Rakim WOULD sound a bit stupid.
..I guess you could say he was between aSAP rockY and a hard place (?)
Kool G Rap
Kool & the Gang
is the day I just give up on music.
I also really like the idea of Asap Rocky fans turning up to an Aesop show and being like ''yo who's the dude with the beard? And also what in the name of fuck is he talking about?''
Whose this Aesop and where is my thesaurus? I ain't heard no ho, glock or facebook references yet
i always thought the similarity between Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All and Wolf Gang was unfortunate.
i can only imagine how many people turned upto Wolf Gang sets at festivals expecting to see people in supreme five panels chanting "free earl"
it's his middle name
as well as the german screamo band?
I don't want these immigrants here.
whereas black guys have names like Carl.
and Katatonia. Quite different beasts entirely.
called 5ive. In homage to the boy band presumably.
Similarly when The XX came about I thought they were The XX Teens (formerly the Xerox Teens) with an S Club Juniors to S Club-style upgrade.
s club juniors to s club 8
s club 7 to s club to s club 3 to s club party
That's just fucking stupid.

It should be Asap Rocky. Aesop Rock has been playing the game for many years more.
