A$AP "Rakim" Rocky Meets Rakim [Video]
A$AP Rocky's Hip-Hop experience started while he was still in diapers, literally. His Hip-Hop fanatic parents named the popular new rapper, born Rakim Mayers, after the legendary MC, Rakim. Rocky recently sat down on ‘The Angie Martinez Show' and got a chance to meet Ra when The God pleasantly interrupted his interview.
“I'm overwhelmed right now,” gushed the Harlem upstart.
Angie went on to tell a story about a chance encounter the neophyte rapper's mother had with Rakim, back in the day, where she requested the God MC autograph young Rocky's diaper, having no paper for him to scribe his signature at the time.
“You don't remember a crazy lady running into you at the [stop] light?” questioned Rocky.
The A$AP mob boss even called his mother in the middle of the encounter so she could share in enjoying the moment.
“Don't tell me…don't tell me you are here with the God.” yelled Rocky's mom. “Rakim is the God. I am a goddess. I gave birth to a God.” explained mom dukes to her son's namesake.
