Here’s a heartwarming story that’s sure to brighten your day*. The story goes that A$AP Rocky – government name Rakim Mayers – was named after the God MC, a result of his parents being avid fans of Rakim Allah. However, the young Harlem MC had never met the elder, Hip-Hop patriarch, minus one time when his mom managed to get baby Rocky’s diaper autographed. The Hip-Hop tidbit was first revealed during an earlier interview between Rocky and Hot97′s Angie Martinez, who vowed to bring them two artists together one day. Recently, Angie managed to make it happen and cameras were rolling to capture the footage seen below.
If there’s a young Nasir out there reading and watching this, holler at Angie Mar and she may be able to put you in touch with God’s Son.
* — Or maybe not. It’s still a cool story though.
