A$AP Rocky

A$AP Rocky sets sail in the May issue of GQ. In the nautical-themed shoot, the dashing rapper shows off some seafaring looks on board a yacht while surrounded by bikini-clad models.

Pretty Flacko plays skipper, rocking a $3,300 Dior Homme blazer and captain’s hat while flanked by sexy sailors. He shows off his abs in a yellow Louis Vuitton raincoat and rides a jet ski in a Nautica jacket.

In the issue, he chats about his passion for fashion. “I wanted to model when I was younger. I was always into clothes and shit,” he tells the magazine.

When it comes to his inspiration, he doesn’t look far. “I’m the man on those things [referring to menswear blogs],” he says. “I don’t really look at them. Well, I guess I do, but only when I’m looking at myself. I inspire me.”
