A$AP Rocky Finally got to meet his namesake on “The Angie Martinez” show yesterday Morning! For those who do not know Rocky’s government name is Rakim and his mother who was an old school Hip Hop fan, purposely named him after the legendary emcee Rakim! In the middle of the interview with Rocky, Angie brought Rakim in and had the young rapper in shock! “I’m overwhelmed right now,” said ASAP Rocky. Martinez told the story of how Rocky’s mother ran into Rakim and asked him to sign a diaper because it was the only thing she had. During the interview Rocky called his mother, “Don’t tell me…don’t tell me you are here with the God!” screamed his mother. “Rakim is the God. I am a goddess. I gave birth to a god!” she said, explaining her reason for naming her son after the Rap legend.
This is just a beautiful story and it was really Dope of Angie Martinez to do that. Check out the videos from the interview below! What are your thoughts?!
