A$AP Rocky’s had an incredible run over the past six years. He’s notched two #1 albums (Long.Live.A$AP & At.Long.Last. A$AP). He’s the face of the prestigious Dior Homme fashion house. He’s the Creative Director of MTV Labs. He’s quietly an incredibly talented designer and producer. He’s Harlem’s reigning champion. He seems to have it all. But according to an uncredited list ranking rappers that went viral in December 2016, A$AP Rocky is somehow overrated. This week’s Breakdown delves into Rocky’s magnanimous accomplishments, his recent challenges, and asks whether MCs that choose not to tackle social issues on wax deserve to be considered overrated.
